Explanation:

война в заливе
война в Персидском заливе

Any of these two can be used, depending on the style of the document you are translating ("voina v Persidskom zalive" can sound slightly more formal). See some examples below:

... что американские военные располагают информацией о том, что пилот самолета ВВС США, сбитого иракскими ПВО в самом начале войны в Заливе, возможно, жив ...
http://news.superbase.ru/20010113/72.htm
Вице-премьер министр Ирака Тарик Азиз заявил во вторник, что его страна сильна как никогда, и война в Персидском заливе для нее не проиграна.

Война в Персидском заливе


Explanation:
Речь идет о войне в Персидском заливе, когда Ирак напал на Кувейт и США вместе с рядом других стран, осудивших агрессию Ирака, разбили иракские войска и изгнали их с территории Кувейта.

This refers to the time of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the subsequent Gulf War when the USA troops crushed the Iraqi invaders and liberated Kuweit.

Война в Персидском заливе


Explanation:
Синоним "Persian Gulf War"

Речь идет о войне в Персидском заливе, когда Ирак напал на Кувейт и США вместе с рядом других стран, осудивших агрессию Ирака, разбили иракские войска и изгнали их с территории Кувейта.

The crisis began in August 1990, when Iraq, led by President Saddam Hussein, invaded and annexed Kuwait.
Between August and November the UN Security Council passed a series of resolutions that culminated in the demand that Iraq withdraw unconditionally from Kuwait by Jan. 15, 1991. By that time, some 500,000 allied ground, air, and naval forces—chiefly from the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Great Britain, Egypt, Syria, and France—were arrayed against an Iraqi army estimated at that time to number at least 540,000.

Iraqi representatives accepted allied terms for a provisional truce on March 3 and a permanent cease-fire on April 6. Iraq agreed to pay reparations to Kuwait.
