Navideshahed – it was 21/05/1980 that 192 Iraqi war planes fought against Iran by the order of Sadam. After the invasion, the border villages and cities were under the control of the Bathi forces, Susangerd was among the cities. The anti-revolution activists penetrated into the city and entered to Bostan(name of a city). At the 6th day the Iraqi tanks passed through the Karkheh River and entered the city, finally Susangerd were under the control of the Bathi forces.
All the people had left the city while only some defenders were remained in the city to defend it. As the Iraqi forces entered to the city, they killed the people badly. There are many memories about the Iraqi forces and the massacre of the innocent people.
The Susangerd war had two important aspects: 1) the inner aspects 2) the exterior aspects
The groups who were entered to defend from the city were the inner aspects and those who entered from Tabriz with the commandership of "Ali Tajallaei" put the Iraqi forces back.
Susangerd played an important role during the 8 years holy defense, it was as the entrance gate for the enemies. Many people and commanders were martyred during the defense of the city, like martyr Chamran. Finally the Iranian forces could defeat them, as you entered to Susangerd you can see the picture which is written" Susangerd, the city of the lovers of martyrdom".
