Iran unveiled a monument to Jews who died during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War.

IRNA, the official Iranian news agency posted photos of the ceremony Monday, headlined "Monument to Jewish Martyrs Unveiled in Tehran."

The page was captioned, "Iran on Monday unveiled a monument to the Jewish citizens who lost their lives in the 8-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran."

The monument, a gold colored slab with inscriptions in Persian and topped by an artistic representation of the Hebrew phrase, "Peace Forever," appears to be set in a Jewish cemetery.
