Asked in Iran, History of the Middle East
what country was at war with Iran for eight years from 1980?
Did the Shi'ites fight on the side of Iran in the Iran-Iraq war?
It depends. The Iran-Iraq War was a war of countries not a war of religions. Numerous Shiite Iraqis were part of the Iraqi Army and did their duty for the Iraqi Government. However, the vast majority of Shiites involved in the war fought on the Iranian side since Iran committed more soldiers to the war and Iran has a higher percentage of Shiites in general and in the armed forces.
Were there Afghans during the Iran-Iraq War?
Afghans did not participate in the Iran-Iraq War. During this period, Afghanistan was fighting the Soviet Union and trying to repel them from the country. However, Afghans were alive during the Iran-Iraq War. (So, technically speaking, there were Afghans during the Iran-Iraq War, just not in that war.)
