Iranians hold rallies to mark US Embassy takeover

Iranians storm US Embassy, Nov. 4, 1979

Later in the day, the semi-official Tasnim news agency, which has ties to the elite Revolutionary Guard, said the missile was a Qadr-F that has the same range as a Sejil. Demonstrators burned an effigy of U.S. President Donald Trump, as well as Israeli and U.S. flags.

Mr Trump refused to recertify the 2015 landmark nuclear deal between Iran and world powers in October and the USA has imposed more sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile programme. Trump broke ranks with European allies, Russian Federation and China last month, and refused to re-certify Iran's compliance, even though Iran reaffirmed its commitment to the deal and United Nations inspectors have verified Tehran is complying with its terms. Senior Iranian officials continue to claim that the Islamic Republic's missile program is exclusively defensive in nature, and state that it is not negotiable.

Demonstrators held anti-U.S. and anti-Israel signs and chanted slogans, including "Down With the USA", condemning Washington's policies toward Iran.

A few months after the toppling of the US -backed government of the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Iranian students, believing the USA embassy was being used as cover for espionage activity aimed at overthrowing the Islamic Republic, stormed the building.

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have risen again, at a time when Tehran has been improving political and military ties with Russian Federation.

Garcia added: "He is not a supporter of OM, because you can not insult your own players, you have to be behind everyone".

Tighter security was handled by Iranian police and the hard-line Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. State television said similar celebrations were being held in other Iranian cities and towns.

Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani highlighted Washington's hostilities and conspiracies against Tehran and said the Iranian nation has set a record in humiliating the USA and foiling its conspiracies.

Iranians who gathered at the embassy echoed the defiant words of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who last week called the United States Iran's "No. 1 enemy".

Anti-Iran measures adopted by the United States have strengthened the Iranian nation's power, Shamkhani said on Saturday. "I don't see any solution in my child's lifetime, let alone mine". "We want to have normal relations with America and foreign investment here to create jobs for our educated youth".
