iranian soldiers

Coincident with the Hendeli Channel operation in the southwest of Karkheh river done by   the   Iranian   troops, a battalion from Hamzeh 21st infantry division of IRI army was engaged in the west of this river to develop the western beachhead toward the Karkheh bridge- EinKhosh road, so after a day of heavy   battle, Iranian troops could seize all the designated objectives and push back the enemy. The accomplishment of this operation which remarkably expanded the beachhead in the west of Karkheh River was an appropriate action so that more troops could assemble in the beachhead area.
