TEHRAN, Oct. 28 (Mehr News Agency) -- Part of a Sassanid tepe was destroyed last week near Ahvaz, the provincial capital of Khuzestan. The destruction was carried out by the Mehrab Housing Company for construction of a high-rise apartment complex, Khuzestan Cultural Heritage Lovers Society (Taryana) announced on Monday.

No permission had been granted by the Khuzestan Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Department (KCHTHD) for the housing company at the site, Taryana spokesman Mojtaba Gahestuni said.

The mound, which covers an area of 10 hectares, had already been damaged by a road construction project, installation of telecommunication poles, other housing projects and establishment of a bazaar, he added.

Shame on them

The terrorist regime of the IR of I, is on its death bed, so just like the actions of Sadam Hussein and Taliban before it, it sees that the salvation in its dying days is to destroy everything Persian that would conflict with Islam.  Little they know that the love and respect of Islam has long left the Persian Psyche.  Islam no longer has any legitimate place in the Iranian Society.
