Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has lauded the Iranian people’s massive turnout in nationwide rallies that marked the 38th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the comments during a meeting in Tehran with a group of people from the northwestern province of East Azarbaijan on Wednesday.
On February 10, people from all walks of life rallied in different cities and towns across the country to celebrate the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, which toppled the former US-backed regime and set the stage for the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Prior to the rallies, the Leader had called on the nation to attend the demonstrations en masse in response to the new US administration’s hostile rhetoric and threats against the Islamic Republic.
“These are the third and fourth generations of the Revolution, who are standing against the enemy and making themselves heard with determination,” the Leader said in reference to the youths that actively took part in the rallies.
