Iran: Saddam's Chemical Bombing of Sardasht Highest Degree of Insolence

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that the chemical bombing of Sardasht was the highest degree of insolence by former dictator Saddam Hussein.

"The Sardasht chemical bombing (June of 1987) showed the highest degree of Saddam regime's insolence in the war imposed against Iran," Amir Abdollahian said in a tweet on Monday.

He pointed out that the great nation of Iran will never forget the silence and complicity of human rights claimants in the brutal crime and contrary to international law.

The Iranian foreign minister commemorated the National Day of Combating Chemical and Biological Weapons.

The Iranian city of Sardasht in West Azerbaijan Province is the third city after Japan's Hiroshima and Nagasaki which became the target of Weapons of Mass Destruction in the world.

 In June, 1987, Iraqi warplanes dropped mustard gas bombs on Sardasht, in two separate bombing runs on four residential areas.
