ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani on Saturday wished a happy holiday to all Muslims in Kurdistan, Iraq, and the world on the Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) holiday, according to a statement from the Kurdistan Regional Government.

The Prime Minister especially congratulated the Peshmergas, the internal security forces, and the families of the martyrs and Anfal victims.

“I hope the holiday will bring happiness and prosperity, improve the financial situation and welfare of the people, promote stability, peace, and tranquility in the world, and foster further development of unity and a culture of peaceful coexistence between different communities in the Kurdistan Region,” the premier said.

The Feast of Sacrifice marks the end of the annual Islamic pilgrimage, known as the Hajj, to the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The pilgrimage is considered a mandatory duty for all Muslims who are financially and physically able to carry it out at least once in their lifetime.

The religious holiday is the second of two Islamic celebrations, the other being Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.
