These documents record files on the infamous Operation Sophia. The operation was carried out in the summer of 1982 and designed to end insurgency in areas of the countryside. In reality, it was a massive organized killing of indigenous peasants.
This document is important to my research because it demonstrates the height of the bloodshed in the civil war. The size of the document alone is testament to the unthinkable level of violence.
