iran celebrateIran celebrates the 32nd anniversary of the epic liberation to Iranian southwestern port city of Khorramshahr from a brutal invasion by Iraqi military forces under its former dictator Saddam Hussein.

Iranian soldiers put an end to the 575 days of the Iraqi occupation of the city through a landmark military

operation codenamed Beit ol-Moqaddas.

The Iranian forces launched the Beit ol-Moqaddas Operation in April 1982 and liberated Khorramshahr on May 24 of the same year. In retaking the city, the Iranians captured some 19,000 soldiers from the Iraqi army.

During the operation, thousands of Iraqi military troops were also killed and injured.

The liberation of Khorramshahr served as a turning point in the destructive Iraqi-imposed war and changed the tide of conflict in favor of Iranian forces and cast doubt on the ability of Saddam’s war machine, which had been receiving the full economic, military and intelligence support of more than 20 countries led by the US.

The imposed war began when Iraq, under the deposed dictator Saddam Hussein, invaded Iran on 22 September 1980 and lasted for eight years.
