Mohammad Jahanara who was Khorramshahr Corps Command

On 15 October, the Iraqis forced their way to within 1.6 kilometres (1 mi) of Abadan and captured the city’s radio-television station. In a separate engagement farther north, near the Iraqi blocking position near Dar Khuyeh, an Iraqi armor force ambushed a large persian convoy, escorted by tanks coming from Ahwaz. Apparently this Iranian force was attempting to carry supplies to the besieged defenders of Abadan by way of the Abadan-Ahwaz highway.
