Iranian People Vow Harsh Revenge for Assassination of Gen. Soleimani, Efforts to Expel US from Region

The Iranian people participating in the February 11 rallies on Tuesday underlined in a final resolution their determination to take a harsh revenge for the US assassination of IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, stressing efforts to expel the American army from the region.

“We see serious determination to take a harsh revenge for the martyrdom of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, [Deputy Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF)] Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and their comrades as a general command for the Iranian people,” the resolution said.

“We declare that we will not sit silent until we expel the American occupiers from West Asia completely and wipe out the fake child-killer (Zionist) regime,” it added.

Lieutenant General Soleimani and Abu Muhandis were assassinated in a US drone strike on Baghdad International Airport in Iraq on January 3.

On January 8, the IRGC Aerospace Force started heavy ballistic missile attacks on US Ein Al-Assad airbase in Southwestern Iraq near the border with Syria and a US operated airbase in Erbil in retaliation for the US assassination of General Soleimani.

The resolution also stressed that there will be no new talks with the United States as it has proved to be a terrorist country that cannot be trusted.

It also condemned the new US plot for the region, ‘Deal of the Century’, saying that it will be thrown to the dustbin of history.

Finally, it invited the Iranian people to participate in the upcoming parliamentary election in massive turnout.

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 were crucially important this year as the event came 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.
