Kuwait (1991-2003)
 

In the aftermath of the 1991 Gulf war Kuwait found itself confronted with colossal post-war problems. They included the reclamation of the entire land of Kuwait which had been turned into a battlefield by Iraq and the Allied Forces. Almost the whole territory was infested with lethal mines, huge stockpiles of ammunition and explosives and vast dugouts, which made the normal use of land impossible. On the request of UN, Pakistan deployed its Engineer Units for the reclamation of the affected land. Accordingly, it was assigned the most difficult area in the north of Kuwait city. Subsequently, reclamation of Bubiyan Island was also entrusted to Pakistan. The operation was carried out by a task force of Pakistan Army Engineers.
