In 24 may 1982, After 19 months of valiant battle “Khorramshahr” was recaptured by Iranian in Operation Beit ol-Moqaddas. Every drop of blood that we’ve sacrificed on that land is the supporter of safety and peace in our country today.
Martyr Muhammad Jahan Ara:
Comrades, If the city falls we will recapture it again. But be careful about your faith so it doesn’t fall.
It was God who liberated “Khorramshahr”.
There’s a popular sad Persian song, “Mammad Naboodi” (ممد نبودی, meaning “Mammad [colloquial variant of Mohammad], you were not there [to see the city has been liberated]”) which is about Muhammad jahanara, the Pasdaran commander who was one of the last few Iranians to leave Khorramshahr when it fell. He would go on to fight in the Siege of Abadan and lead Iranian forces to recapture Khorramshahr, but he died on May 24, 1981 in a plane crash incident, before observing the eventual liberation of the city.
