Muradhajati reminded: During the holy defense week, we will start war tourism tours from Ahvaz with the student community, and then we will expand this program to all cities.
The Director General of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts of Khuzestan also considered the symmetry of the Tourism Week and the Sacred Defense Week as a good omen and said: “No province has the capacity to pay attention to the spiritual heritage and events of the Sacred Defense period, and it is an honor to do something in this field.” It will be for me and my colleagues.
Mohammad Hossein Aristozadeh added: The national registration of holy defense places, especially in Ahvaz and border cities, and the installation of guide and identity boards of the places of the epic and sacrifice era are among the measures that have been taken and are still ongoing.
