War Between Ottomans and Shiites
The Ottomans, who were Sunni Muslims, attacked the Shiite Persian. The Ottoman Selim who had already massacred 40,000 Shiite subjects, defeated the Persian army at the battle of Chaldiran on August 23, 1513. Selim went on to occupy Tabriz and slaughtered 80,000 of its citizens.
