The operation involved a successful counterattack against a July 1988 military incursion from Iraq, by thousands of MKO terrorists. 

The MKO terrorists were armed, equipped and given air support by Iraqi dictator Saddam. 

Led by Lt. General Ali Sayad Shirazi, Operation Mersad began on 26 July 1988 and lasted only a few days, where the Iranian Armed Forces crushed the MKO terrorists. 

The Islamic Republic emerged unscathed and triumphant despite numerous attacks during the eight-year Iraqi-imposed war.
