AliReza once trapped in this livestock and forced to reject and hidden himself in astragalus jungles and we save his life with my informing to Kermanshah’s base.
This martyr’s fellow said a memory about him: martyr Yasini was the deputy of operations base in Hamadan and he recommended me to test a thousand pound bomb at height of 40 thousand feet which is suitable for hitting a city or not. When AliReza requested this from me, I became upset and said that I couldn’t hit unmilitary people.
I was so upset but because it was an order and it was trial I accepted. I flight and tested the bomb and I realized it isn’t suitable. When I returned, I was still in the cabin that martyr Yasini came up with a telegram in his hands and said: Mohammad, you see you were wrong, I immediately canceled this point and the general staff accept it.
