CAIS--Islamic regime's authority have destroyed the remains of 2200-year-old Khoda-Afarid bridge also known as Negin, in Shiniyar district of Masjed-Soleyman in Khuzestan province...The destruction of the bridge was begun in September under the guise of construction of a new bridge, and despite all the oppositions from cultural figures and the Iranian nation, the Khuzestan Governor office went ahead and removed the last stone of the ancient bridge...The ancient bridge of Khoda-Afarid (Xodā-āfarīd) which is known to local Bakhtiari population known as Negin, was one of the best preserved and intact bridges of its type remained in Iran-proper from Arsacid dynasty (248 BCE-224 CE).
Since 1979 and the rise of Islamic regime to power, the ruling clerics have been devoting themselves to the destruction and erasing of all the pre-Islamic Iranian culture and civilisation, under the guise of "construction projects." Since then, the regime has destroyed large numbers of major cultural landmarks associated with the ancient, pre-Islamic Iranian civilisation.
