Warning Against Chemical Terrorism in West Asia

Defense Minister Amir Hatami highlighted western support for terrorist groups in West Asia and cautioned against “organized chemical terrorism” in the region.
In a statement released on Friday to commemorate the anniversary of the 1987 chemical bombing of the northwestern city of Sardasht by the Iraqi army under former dictator Saddam Hussein, the general described Iran as “the biggest victim of chemical weapons,” Tasnim News Agency reported.
“Months before the chemical attack on Sardasht, the US as a self-appointed defender of human rights vetoed a statement (not a resolution) by the majority of UN Security Council members, which condemned the use of chemical weapons by the Iraqi government,” the defense minister recalled.
Located in Iran's northwestern province of West Azarbaijan, Sardasht was the third city in the world after Japan’s Hiroshima and Nagasaki to become a target of the banned chemical weapons.
