Iran–Iraq War

Iraq Fail To retake The City again

Thursday Jul 3, 1986
Mehran, Ilam Province, Iran

Iraqi losses were heavy enough to allow the Iranians to also capture territory inside Iraq, and depleted the Iraqi military enough to prevent them from launching a major offensive for the next two years.
