Iran–Iraq War

Capturing The City of Dehloran

Monday Jul 11, 1988
Dehloran, Ilam Province, Iran

By 12 July, the Iraqis had captured the city of Dehloran, 30 km (19 mi) inside Iran, along with 2,500 troops and much armour and material, which took four days to transport to Iraq. The Iraqis withdrew from Dehloran soon after, claiming that they had "no desire to conquer Iranian territory."
