Indecent police officer

I have a memory from the provincial trips (in the years 1356 and 1357 corresponding to 1977 and 1978) that are worth quoting. A security team was missioned to go to Qazvin and deployed there.

The same birds fly behind the cover around a small, cloud-like gray background that contains excerpts from the text of the book: "His words was like hot water being poured on my body and burning all over my feet. I stared at his mouth, but I could hear nothing more.

Excerpts from Memoirs of Abdullah Salehi

On the 28th of September 1980, in the back alleys of the Taleghani [Khorramshahr] neighborhood, we clashed with Iraqi artillery. Speed of action was important. If we reacted late, the rackets would hit us. Sometimes I lurked behind the alleys so that I could surprise the Iraqis.

A Review of the Book "Ismail Nazr-Aftab"

When our gaze passes through the cheerful and smiling face of Ishmael among the white bouquet on a light blue background and stops on the back cover of the book, we empathize with him through these few sentences of the narrator in his journey: "I knew from the way the tires were moving that the car was moving on the asphalt road.

We were supposed to experience a hot summer day at seven oclock in the afternoon. I got to his house in ten minutes to seven, but I knew that working with the militant had special rules. One of them is punctuality. I went up and down the alley several times to meet this Ironman at his house.
