Imam Khomeini hailed sacrifices by prisoners of war

Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic frequently hailed relentless sacrifices rendered by Iranian forces fell prisoners into hands of the then Bathis regime of Iraq during the imposed war.

After the end of war in 1989, thousands of Iranian prisoners of war returned back to the Islamic country after spending years in Bathi regime prisons. It happened due to great diplomacy and wisdom exercised by the Islamic Republic.

August 17, is commemorated to mark the day in memory of those who rendered great sacrifices to shield the Iranian independence and freedom against the aggression of ill powers. 

The Iranian nation under wise and divine leadership of Imam Khomeini resisted all type of aggressions and eight-year long imposed war launched by former dictator Saddam Hossein and his regional and Western backers.

The founder of the Islamic Republic had repeatedly warned the international community against the crimes the Iraqi dictator was committing against the Iraqi people and the Iranian nation.

Months after the victory of revolution in Iran, foreign powers and regional dictators armed Saddam to launch an all-out war against the peaceful Iranian nation.

They wanted to damage the Iranian nation and weaken the revolution from very beginning.

However, the masses and all stratum of the Iranian society became united under the flag of Imam's leadership to defend the Islamic system and values and confront the global colonialist powers and dictatorial regimes.

Imam mobilized all domestic sources and forces to defend the borders and Islamic- human values.

Imam had given special instruction to forces and had denied any use of forces against civilians or issued orders against misbehaving with prisoners of war.

The 8-year long war imposed by the regional and global powers against Iran met with failures. But the sacrifices made by the Islamic Iranian youth will be remembered forever. The Iranian forces defended their land and values with considering all moral and humane values.

The great spiritual leader of the Islamic world had also predicted that those who were supporting Saddam should expect one day that this stupid dictator will also turn against them. Imam prediction came true years after Saddam invaded some more Arab states of the Persian Gulf.
