The 14th Infantry Division was reportedly headquarterd at "Al Salam (Immarah)." The word "Immarah" is a cognate for "emirate" ( singular = imarah, plural = imarat, literally = leadership, authority), though the use of this term in this context is obscure.
The 6th Armored Division's 30th Armored Brigade was reportedly deployed in the "Shalamcha Area."
On 20 July 1987, the UN Security Council unanimously passed Resolution 598, urging Iraq and Iran to accept a cease-fire, withdraw their forces to internationally recognized boundaries, and settle their frontier disputes by negotiations held under the auspices of the United Nations. Military operations in the Gulf resumed, and Iraq recaptured the Fao peninsula and the districts of Salamcha and Majnun.
