In the meeting that took place late on Wednesday, Dr Rouhani appreciated the family of the martyrs and said: “Without a doubt, the Iranian nation are proud of the devotion of the great families of martyrs”.

He added: “Veterans and their great families have done a great deal for dignity, the Revolution and Islam, and if it were not for their devotion, enemies would have destroyed our country like what happened to Syria and Iraq”.

“If Saddam Hussein and his soldiers found the opportunity and if it were not for self-sacrifice of the warriors of Islam and children of this land, they would destroy the entire Iran like what they did to Khorramshahr,” he continued.

Dr Rouhani also said: “Iraq had mobilised all its power and facilities to attack Khorramshahr, but they were not able to enter that city easy because the children and young people of the area defended the city with such a bravery”.

 “It did not take long until the warriors of Islam liberated Khooramshahr with their devotion and self-sacrifice,” he continued.

In this visit that Vice-President in Martyrs and Veterans Affairs Hojatoleslam Val-Moslemin Shahidi was attending, a plaque of appreciation was given to the family of the martyrs.
