Mandali (Arabic: ‎,[3] Kurdish: Mendelî ,?[4][5]) is a town in Balad Ruz District, Diyala Governorate in Iraq, near the Iranian border. The town experienced Arabization during the Saddam era and has a mixed Kurdish and Arab population.[6] The town is disputed between the federal government of Iraq and the autonomous Kurdistan Region.[7]

Mandali is known for its palm tree orchards and dates.[8]

History

The former name of Mandali was Bendink[9] which was the capital of the Kurdish principality Bani Ammz.[10] Kurds constituted 50% of the population in 1947 and the majority continued throughout the 1950s.[11][12] About 4,000 Kurdish families were deported or fled the town after the collapse of the Kurdish movement in 1975.[13]

During September 1980 of the Iran-Iraq War, the town and other nearby villages were attacked by Iranian forces.[14] The population of the town was 25,656 in 1977 but decreased to 8,092 in 1987. A republican decree established Baladruz District in 1987 which Mandali was attached to.[10]
