In April of 2004, in Karbala, Iraq, the largest battle fought by Polish soldiers took place since the end of World War II. During a Muslim holiday, Al-Qaida and al-Sadr militants staged an uprising against the stabilization forces. The target of especially fierce attacks was the Karbala City Hall – the seat of lawful Iraqi authorities and police headquarters. For four days and nights, an 80-man Polish-Bulgarian unit held off all attacks by the terrorists, despite lacking food and expending almost all ammunition, and persevered until relief forces arrived.
