Mohammad Hossein Fahmideh was born on May 6th of 1967 and died on October 30th of 1980 as a true war hero. At the age of 13 in 1980, during the outbreak of the Iran-Iraq war he made the decision of leaving home and joining the war.
He was fighting along the Iran army, and at one point the Iraqi troops pushed the Iranian troops back as they were passing through a very narrow canal. Many of the Iranian soldiers were either dead or wounded at this point by the Iraqi troops.
Therefore, Hossein took a grenade from a nearby body, pulled the pin out, jumped right underneath an enemy’s tank, and by blowing himself up he was able to disable the tank! This made the enemies think that the area was mined and therefore decided to stop their advancement.
Until today, Mohammad Hossein Fahmideh is considered a true national Iranian hero, and one of the boys with bigger guts that have ever lived.
