Iran: Thousands march on 1979 anniversary, chant anti-Israel, anti-US slogans

Iran displays missile on anniversary of US embassy takeover

Thousands gathered at the former United States embassy in downtown Tehran where a missile, believed to be a 2,000-kilometre-range solid-fuel Sejjil, was on display.

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. Still, the Europeans share USA concern over Iran's ballistic missile program and "destabilizing" regional behavior. The rally, which commemorates the students who led the takeover of the building on September 3, 1979, also served as a unified denouncement of USA -imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

In 1979, 38 years ago today, the United States embassy in Iran was overrun by student demonstrators who supported Iran's Islamic revolution. They took 52 Americans hostage for 444 days after Washington refused to hand over the shah, who was in the US.

According to reports, some marchers held signs featuring derogatory caricatures of US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Trump's administration has taken a tougher line with Iran, threatening to tear up an global accord on its nuclear programme.

I don't think the pitch will change too much, but the dew might be an advantage in the second innings. Munro said he found the most success when he watched the ball, rather than premeditating his shots.

After Iranian students seized the US embassy in Tehran in 1979, they spent years painstakingly reassembling the intelligence reports shredded by the CIA officers who were some of the last workers captured, according to the BBC. State TV said similar celebrations were being held in other Iranian cities and towns. Under that deal, most worldwide sanctions on Iran were lifted in exchange for Tehran curbing nuclear activity.

"This year, Trump's anti-Iranian policies have mobilised more Iranians", Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council.

Anti-Iran measures adopted by the U.S. have strengthened the Iranian nation's power, Shamkhani said on Saturday. He called the United States the "eternal enemy" of Iran.

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.

The US cut its diplomatic relations with Iran following the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since.
