An exhibition of anti-war posters created by Iranian artist Behnaz Nik Khah Monfared is to be showcased at Tehran Peace Museum.

The event will be held to commemorate the “World Day of Remembrance for all Victims of Chemical Warfare” on April 29.

The exhibition is scheduled to kick off on April 29 and will run until May 7.

Celebrated since 2005, the Day of Remembrance for all Victims of Chemical Warfare gives people the chance to pay tribute to the victims of chemical warfare.

Marking the day also allows governments and organizations to commit or reaffirm their commitment to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), an organization that aims to end the threat of chemical weapons and promote the peace and security worldwide.

Iran is one the countries that experienced the bitter consequences of chemical warfare attacks during 1980s Iran-Iraq war.

Iraqi chemical weapons struck a border village near the Iranian town of Sardasht in West Azerbaijan Province on June 28, 1987.

Over 1000 individuals were killed and more than 8000 were permanently disabled due to the attack.

Many children gradually lost their vision after birth due to the consequences of the chemical bombardment at the area.
