Irdc.ir: With the start of the imposed war, the teenagers also eagerly reached the battlefields; Adolescents who, despite their young age and small stature, were able to leave a brilliant record with self-sacrifice. Martyr Hussein Fahmideh was the representative of this group. The following are some of the struggles of teenagers in the period of holy defense.
Memories and narratives of the war show the self-sacrifice of teenagers, Hamid Davoudabadi, referring to the efforts of 15-year-old martyr Saeed Toughani, says: "Doshka's heavy artillery bullet had ripped open his body, and Saeed, a 15-year-old boy who knew how much they loved him, said at the last minute that none of the guys would notice his martyrdom and that no one would be disturbed in his spirit. He turned away and fell to the ground alone and said to his commander: Brother! "I swear to God, do not tell the guys that Saeed was martyred and cover my face so that the forces can continue on their way, because time is short."
The comrade in arms of Martyr Hussein Fahmideh also say about the death of this young martyr: The operation that started in the eight-meter alley in Khorramshahr Mohammad Reza, Hussein's friend was wounded and Hussein pulled him back. Mohammad Reza said to the warriors: Take Hussein. They turned and saw Hussein running towards the tank with grenades strapped to his waist. His knees were injured, he fell to his knees, and six minutes later the enemy tank suddenly exploded and began to burn.
It has also been said about 15-year-old martyr Reza Dadbin: "He was shot in the shoulder and was seriously injured. Several of the children wanted to take him to the city, but he refused. He said: If you take me back, I will be martyred on the way. Do not bother yourself for me. "Just put me to sleep towards the qibla, and hold my hands and feet so that I do not move when I’m dying and the Iraqis do not notice where I am."
One of the most important struggles of the teenagers in the imposed war was to help their brothers in arms under enemy fire. Sayyed Saleh Mousavi, one of the fighters and defenders of Khorramshahr, referring to the struggles of Martyr Behnam Mohammadi, says: "He was working very well; including Bringing water; Bringing weapons; Bringing ammunition; Sometimes it even bringing information; " he was very sharp and could handle anything."
Haidar Shahidi, an 11-year-old martyr of the Holy Defense, is another warrior whose many narratives of his struggles during the Holy Defense have been recorded. Haidar Shahidi, who took part in the victorious Badr operation in the east of the Tigris in the Majnoon Islands as part of the Abu Dharr Battalion of the 33rd Al-Mahdi Division, was delivering ammunition, water and food to the battalion fighters under heavy enemy fire and explosions of bullets and shrapnel.
fighting with injuries
Abdullah Ebrahimi, who was 12 years old when he was on the frontline, says: "As far as the eye could see, there were tanks; We stood in front of them with a battalion. "I was hit in the face, but I did not turn back for fear of being transferred to the back of the front and continued firing." The mother of martyr Alireza Mahmoudi Parsa, who was martyred at the age of 13, also recalls: "When we arrived at the hospital, we saw someone shouting: Mom, mom. I turned to the sound. At first I did not recognize his face. I understood from his voice that he was my son. Martyr Ahmad Daneshi's mother, who was not more than 16 years old at the time of her martyrdom, also says: "She was on leave because of her injuries. The stitches on her wounds were not only not healed, but they were also purulent." They did everything they could to prevent him from going back to the frontline.
Tolerating exhausting tests
Due to their small figure, teenager warriors often had to obtain the consent of commanders in addition to satisfying their families in order to be on the frontlines. So, many commanders tried to dissuade these teenagers with exhausting experiments to prove that this was beyond their power. 12 years old martyr Reza Panahi’s mother says: "Several times in the region, he was placed in difficult situations to give up and regret staying on the front, but Reza had proved to them that he was stubborn."
"Although he was small, he played an important role in the line," said Sardar Naseh.
Enduring the suffering of losing loved ones
Other sacrifices of teenagers in sacred defense include enduring the loss of loved ones. The mother of the adolescent martyr Mohammad Hossein Zolfaghari says in this regard: "When I told him that now that your brother had been martyred, it was better for you to go to Meybod, he replied in a great spirit: If I go, they will not let me return to the front. "
The struggle of the youth in the difficult moments of the holy defense is the golden achievement of the 8-year imposed war; They created pure moments with their bravery and today they are a model for their generation.
