The Liberation of Khorramshahr was the Iranian recapture of the port city of Khorramshahr from the Iraqis on May 24, 1982 during the Iran-Iraq War. The Iraqis had captured the city early in the war on October 26, 1980. The successful retaking of the city was part of Operation Jerusalem. It is perceived as a turning point in the war and the liberation is celebrated in Iran on its anniversary, May 24. (source: Wikipedia)
Iranians in Tehran and other parts of Iran marked the anniversary with family walks.
