Visiting Iran’s cultural attaché in Beirut, the spouse of martyr Mostafa Chamran Ghadeh Jaber said that the Arabic translation of Chamran’s Lebanon will be released.
During the visit, Iran’s cultural attaché donated copies of As Tough As Iron to Jaber which consist summaries of Chamran’s life in English and Arabic.
Expressing her gratitude, she said that most of Chamran’s writings and photos have been handed over to his brother- Mehdi Chamran- for publication and documentation.
She finally said that Chamran’s Lebanon has recently been rendered into Arabic and is ready for publication.
Born in 1932 in Tehran, Chamran began his activities at age 15 with Islamic associations and attended lectures on logic and philosophy by the martyred Morteza Motahhari.
At the time of the victory of the Islamic Revolution under the leadership of Imam Khomeini, Chamran returned to Iran. He was deputy prime minister for revolutionary affairs and was later appointed minister of defense.
At the time of the Iraqi invasion, he went to Ahvaz, fought bravely and never left the front.
Chamran wrote numerous articles on political, tactical and ideological topics. Most of them were published without any author listed. In his own opinion, his ideological and intellectual activities were more important than his scientific, political or guerrilla activities.
He was martyred during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war on June 21, 1981 by a bomb fragment in the village of Dehlavieh.
