As you already know, 2020 began with the renewed political conflict between the United States and Iran.
The escalation of threats, after the American raid in Iraq that caused the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, does not stop.
The Pasdaran, the Guards of the Iranian Revolution, through their commander Hossein Salami, have informed the U.S. that they have in their sights 35 targets scattered throughout the region, the President of the United States Donald Trump, through his Twitter account, replied that he has 52, all very important for Iran and its culture.
We have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!
In response to this tweet, the architect Mohammad Hassan Forouzanfar has created “Peace”, a conceptual project, consistent with his previous works, with which he imagined “peace”.
To convey his message, the artist has adorned images of iconic UNESCO-listed and historic world heritage sites in Iran, with white flags waving free in the sky.
Mohammad Hassan Forouzanfar’s aim is to emphasize that these sites and landscapes are not only important for Iran, but for the entire human history.
The 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property, which states that even targeting cultural sites is a war crime, supports the artist’s thesis.
