Iran Displays Yasin, Balaban Bombs, Fajr-5 Rockets in February 11 Rallies in Tehran

Iran displayed its home-made Yasin and Balaban bombs as well as Fajr-5 rockets during the nationwide rallies to celebrate the 41st anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on Tuesday.

Two indigenized bombs of Yasin and Balaban types were put on display on the sidelines of the rallies in Tehran today.

The military also displayed the latest version of its Fajr-5 rockets in the rallies.

Fajr-5 is another home-made missile produced by Iranian military experts for short-range targets.

Iranian people from all walks of life took to the streets all over the country on Tuesday morning to celebrate the 41st anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in a show of continued support for their revolutionary causes and the Islamic establishment.

Millions of Iranians took to the streets today to commemorate the 41st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in demonstrations across the country.

Hundreds of domestic and foreign reporters covered the Bahman 22 (February 11) rallies.

In Tehran, demonstrators congregated at the Azadi Square, the capital’s main square and the site of major national rallies over the past three decades.

The rallies are crucially important this year as the event comes just few months after riots in a number of cities and towns across the country.

Led by the Founder of the Revolution, Imam Khomeini, Iranians confronted the forces of US-proxy Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi in late 1977 to end dictatorship rule in the country.

By December 1978, millions of Iranians would take to the streets in protest against the policies of the Shah on a regular basis.

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned from exile to Iran to be received by cheering crowds after the departure of the Shah in mid-January 1979. Two weeks later, the country saw the Islamic Revolution.

The final collapse of the Shah’s regime came on February 11, 1979, when the military renounced its loyalty to the Shah and joined the revolutionary forces.

On this day 41 years ago, people took to the streets to celebrate the collapse of the Pahlavi Dynasty and the emergence of the new era.

Today, after 41 years, Iranians have turned out in the millions to mark the historic day once again, demonstrating their adherence to the principles and philosophy of the Islamic Republic.
