Discussing the defense doctrines of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini; Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, IRGC commanders as well as high-ranking Iranian officials gathered in Tehran to review the thoughts and teachings of Imam Khomeini in defense fields, 34 years after the victory of the Islamic Revolution back in 1979. Speakers at the conference talked about different forms of defense practiced by the Islamic Republic of Iran since its establishment over three decades ago. In the first years of the Islamic revolution, the peak of the defense showed itself in the form of "sacred defense" during eight years of Iraqi imposed war on Iran; but under the leadership of the late Imam Khomeini the whole country joined hands to defend Iran against the forces of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The Iraqi regime launched the war against Iran while enjoying the support of most world countries in its invasion of Iran.
