Pourdastan: Mighty armed forces have disappointed the adversaries

Sare-Pole-Zahab, Ghasre-Shirin, Oct 23, IRNA - Commander of the Army Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said on Wednesday that the brave and mighty Iranian nation have disappointed the adversaries to materialize their sinister goals.

Lauding the devotion and brave sacrifices of the Iranian armed forces during eight-year of sacred defense, he said their memory should be honoured.

Iranian armed forces are in full combat readiness to protect the country’s territorial integrity, he said.

He thanked the great nation for the efforts they made in Ghasr-e Shrin and Sar-e Pol-e Zahab defending their houses and towns when they came under surprise attack of Iraqi ground forces in 1980 under dictator Saddam Hussein.
