Herat 1979-2009, a memorial for the Spanish Armed Forces Day.

Memorial monument at Darb Qandahar, a busy street intersection in Herat. On evidence provided by Nasser Halimi, the monument was created in 2002 on the instigation of the then Governor of Herat Ismail Khan. Nasser has discovered that the figures were sculpted by a local mason, trained in Iran, named Khalifa Rahman, who now lives in Zeyarat Jah, in Herat province. The monument memorialises the defeat of the Soviets, which (it could be said) began with the Herat uprising in March 1979.

En su página bibliográfica, la CIA recomienda un libro de Steve Coll, "Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001". New York: Penguin Press, 2004 (https://www.cia.gov/library/intelligence-literature/index.html), donde se describe en detalle lo ocurrido en Herat y quien es Ismael Jan.
