An official of the Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights Ministry has said that the remains of 57 Iranian soldiers killed during Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) were discovered. He said that search parties also discovered the remains of Iraqi soldiers. In 2008, Iran, Iraq and the International Committee of the Red Cross started implementing a joint plan to determine the fate of the MIA’s from that war. Since then the fate of about 2700 missing Iranian soldiers has been decided.
