During WWI, Assyrians joined the western allies to aid in the fight against Turko-German aggression and to defend themselves in their homeland. The British foreign office failed to protect their former "smallest ally", the Assyrians, in favor of a policy that furthered British interests in oil. On August 7, 1933, a year after Iraq became independent from the British mandate, Assyrians were massacred in Semele by Arab troops under the command of a Kurdish general.
