People helped us to defend from Khorramshahr kindly . we never used our desert kitchen , since it was people who always prepared food for us .
It was 4th of Mehr ( the lunar date ) that the enemy ( Bathi forces ) had come to NOU Bridge ( name of a bridge through Shalamcheh road ) . Iranian forces stood against them and forced them to retreat and we caught 21 of them as captive .
Under the present circumstances we were looking for help , but no helping exist . the next day the Iraqi forces started a new attack , so we were forced to retreat. Finally we stopped them at the NOU bridge and did not let them to improve .
At night , the Iraqi forces were not good at operation and they really threat from their own shadow .
As they said: where ever we went the Iranian Navy forces were in .

It was 17th or 18th of Mehr that our forces identified the location of the enemy in a professional operation and decided to attack them at night . all the forces were organized around their location and commanders attacked them so they were forced to retreat for 4 kilometers .
103 forces of us were martyred and about 300 were injured during the 34 days of resistance in Khorramshahr . the most important operations during those days …. 1) Samen al Aemeh Operation 2) Fath ul Mobin operation and 3) Bait ul Moghadas operation
Before the Samen ul Aemeh operation , the commander battalion and a battalion from Khorasan started an operation with the name of Zolfaghar. During the operation the main road in Khorramshahr were under our control.
Some of our forces went and did not permit them ( the Iraqi forces ) to make a bridge on the BAhmanshir river . after that colonel Kahtari helped us and designed an important operation with the name of Zolfaghar in which 600 of Bathi forces were killed .
This lost caused the enemy's sprite weak , so the high degree commanders decided to create another operation against them .
Samen ul Aemeh , Fath ul Mobin and Bait ul Moghadas operations performed successfully which caused the victory of Khorramshahr .
The navi forces had an active role in the Bait ul Moghadas operation that carried the injuries who were participated in that operation among the Karkheh river ( name of a river ) and Karoun river ( name of a river ) . during the operation the western parts of Karoun river were under the control of the commanders when the other forces became closer from the north and the east north to Khorramshahr .
