Iran - Iraq war


December 6, 2021

The Iran-Iraq War, or the Eight-Year War, also known in Iran as the Imposed War and the Holy Defense, is referred to in many Arab and some Western sources as the First Gulf War, which was called Saddam Hussein's Qadisiyah in Iraq during Saddam Hussein's reign. It was the longest conventional war in the twentieth century and the second longest war of the century after the Vietnam War, lasting nearly eight years. The war officially began on September 22, 1980. On this day, sporadic border clashes between the two countries turned into a full-scale war with the Iraqi Air Force simultaneously attacking ten Iranian military and civilian airports and invading the country on all borders, although Iraqi officials believed that the war had increased since September 4, 1980.

At the beginning of the Iraq war, using the element of surprise, it succeeded in occupying parts of Iranian territory, including the city of Khorramshahr. In the second and third years of the war, Iran succeeded in liberating most of the occupied territories, including Khorramshahr, and dragged the war into Iraqi territory since 1984. In February 1986, Iran captured Faw, one of Iraq's most important oil export ports, and on January 8, 1987, it launched Operation Karbala V to capture Basra, Iraq's second largest city, with 65,000 Iranian troops and 20,000 Iraqis. they were killed.
