This chapter deals with the continuing Iranian counter attacks that got momentum and initial successes during the period of September 1981-February 1982. These included new counter attacks in the Khafajiya and the Serbil Zehab sectors, and the counter attack in the Abadan area, that was the first Iranian victory in the ground battle against the Iraqi invading forces. It describes also the fighting in other sectors during October-November 1981, and continuing battles in the Khafajiya and Basitin areas in Khuzestan, as well as the Sumar-Qilan Gharb area in the central sector of the front and the fighting in the northern sector of the front. It sums up the lessons learned by the Iraqis in the first year and half of the war.
