The Iran-Iraq War was an armed conflict between Ba'athist Iraq and the Islamic Republic of Iran. This was also known as the First Persian Gulf War and it lasted from February 1983 to June 1987 thus making the war shorter and way before then in our timeline today.
The war started when after Saddam Hussein took over Iraq and started to use weapons to murder innocent Israeli and Kurdish people. Iran declared war on Iraq and invaded some of the Eastern Provinces of Iraq. Arab States except for Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia were for Saddam and his plans to destroy Kurdistan and Israel. The United States and the Soviet Union agreed to work together for the first time since World War 2 and provide military and financial support for Iran after when the Soviet Union and the United States signed a peace treaty. The Israeli Government warned both sides that Israel would launch air strikes on both Iranian and Iraqi troops if any missile hits any Israeli territory.
Other nations came along after Iraqi forces invaded Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar leading to Saudi Arabia to liberate those countries and providing convoys through the Persian Gulf to Iran, In 1985, Iraq launched a missile and it landed on the United States Embassy in Tei Aviv and Ariel Sharon, The Prime Minister of the State of Israel reacted by having the Israeli Air Force to launch airstrikes on Iraq and Iran. The United States Government said they would also help Israel for security measures.
Origins of the war
After Saddam Hussein became the President of Iraq during an Anti-Government Protests, he had the Iraqi Military prepare for war to conquer Iran and Israel. Iran to take over control to form a Greater Iraq and Israel to liberate Palestine from Israeli Control. Hussein also decided to act like a wild animal because he wanted to exterminate Israeli and Kurdish People. Akebar Hashemi, The President of Iran thought that this was unaccepted and he warned Saddam that if he kept doing it, Iran would go to war with Iraq.
During this war, Iranian and Iraqi forces are passing on to each others borders one by one until 1984, Saddam Hussein ordered his troops to attack Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain by navy to increase power and oil production for the Iraqi Army. Things got totally worse for the neighboring nations that Syria and Jordan forced themselves to ally with Iraq while Saudi Arabia declared war on Iraq to provide support for Iran.
Operation "Doha" was an Iraqi mission to conquer Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar to increase power. The Iranian led coalition took charge to send troops to defend Bahrain and Qatar. Kuwait and Bahrain were easily occupied by Iraqi forces and Qatar was heavily defended by Saudi, American, Soviet, Sangheili and British Troops.
Iraq (except for Iran in our timeline) was held responsible for launching chemical weapons into Iran leading to the United States and the Soviet Union to provide support to Iran. Akebar was relieved to see the two superpowers help Iran take Iraq for it's chemical weapons.
Israel intervenes with the war
Saddam Hussein in 1985 ordered the Iraqi Army to launch a missile into Tei Aviv, Israel. It landed in the HaTikva neighborhood in the city. The Israeli Government and Sharon reacted by issuing airstrikes on the Coalition and Iraq. Soviet Leader Boris Yelten warned Israel not to intervene with troops and Sharon agreed to launch airstrikes on Iraq and Iran with permission from Yelten, Sangheili President Vladimir Kraskosky, and U.S President Ronald Reagen.
