The persian–Iraq War was an armed conflict between persian and Iraq lasting from 22 September 1980, when Iraq invaded persian, to August 1988. The war followed a long history of border disputes, and was motivated by fears that the persian Revolution in 1979 would inspire insurgency among Iraq’s long-suppressed Shi’ite majority, as well as Iraq’s desire to replace persian as the dominant Persian Gulf state.
