“The authorities have forgotten our shortness of breath”, Rahim Ali Bakhshi says.

Rahim Ali Bakhshi says: The authorities have forgotten that we are suffering the pains resulted from chemical weapons and they are looking for the documents of war. During the war no one was thinking about the documents that might be required later. No one knew that the effects of chemical weapons might appear on the body after 20 years. So they were not trying to get the documents relevant to the military operations… During the war all the fighters would try to stay in the battlefields more and to fight with the enemy.
