Iranians Urged to Hold Mass Rallies to Mark Victory of Revolution
The Iranian Defense Ministry invited people from every walk of life to take part in the upcoming nationwide rallies slated to be held in commemoration of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11, 1979.
In a statement issued on Saturday, the ministry congratulated the Iranian nation on the 36th anniversary of victory of the Islamic Revolution.
The statement also hailed the revolution as an event that endowed the Iranian nation with self-confidence.
The Iranian nation toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 35 years ago, on February 11, 1979, ending the 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.
The revolution, spearheaded by the late Imam Khomeini, established a new political system based on Islamic values and democracy.
On February 11 each year, Iranian people pour into the streets in their millions to commemorate the great victory of the Islamic Revolution.
