Tehran (IP) - Peace Museum in Tehran, the capital of Iran, hosted the commemoration ceremony of the 35th anniversary of the Iraqi Ba'athist regime's chemical attack on Sradasht, western Iran.

Iran PressIran news: On June 28, 1987, the Iraqi Ba'athist regime's air force pounded Sardasht with chemical bombs, where 110 civilians were massacred, and 8,000 others were poisoned by the chemical gases. 

Entitled Peace Museum, the museum seeks to both remember the victims of the attack and show how oppressed the people of this city were at the time.

The museum has been designed to illustrate the effects of the chemical bombing of Sardasht.

There in the ceremony, a message by the Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahain was cited: " The chemical attack on four parts of Sardasht in June 1987 depicted the most tragic episode of Saddam's crimes, and for the first time in human history, the Iranian civilians were exposed to chemical weapons."

The silence and complicity of the world's powers with the Ba'athist regime of Saddam played a crucial role in using chemical weapons against the Iranian people in Sardasht. 

As the most extraordinary victim of chemical weapons in the contemporary age, the Islamic Republic of Iran considered the application of such armaments illegitimate and illegal while having adopted active policies in the international communities to pursue the rights of the Iranians defected by the weapons. 

The West's sanctions on Iran have troubled the people afflicting the chemical wounds and defects, such that they have difficulty in preparing the relevant medicines.
