Iranians will never forget chemical attack of Halabje: Iran FM


Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet mentioned to the chemical attack conducted by former Iraqi regime in Halabja and Sardasht, stressing the crime will never be forgotten.

“First they denied it happened—then they blamed Iran. When it was clear it was their own ally, using their own chemical weapons, they were silent. The West may like to forget about horrors of Halabja & Sardasht—31 years ago today—but neither we, nor our Kurdish brethren, ever will,” Mr. Zarif wrote on his official Twitter account.

On March 16, 1988 Saddam conducted chemical attack, martyring more than 5,000 citizens and injuring more than 10,000 others in Halabja.
