Iranians Mark 40th Anniversary of Islamic Revolution

Rouhani also vowed Iran would defeat US sanctions, reimposed after President Donald Trump withdrew from Tehran's nuclear accord with world powers previous year.

The 10-day period from the return of Imam Khomeini until the revolution's victory is celebrated annually in Iran, and is known as the Ten-Day Fajr (Dawn).

"40 years of corruption".

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians marched on the streets of Tehran Monday, burning American flags and taunting the West as it celebrated the Islamic Revolution's 40th anniversary by vowing to boost its ballistic missiles in defiance of US efforts to curb its military.

A pre-prepared resolution was read out ahead of his speech that proclaimed "unquestioning obedience to the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei" and called U.S. President Donald Trump an "idiot". "The regime in Iran has produced only #40YearsofFailure", he wrote.

Washington and its Arab allies have viewed Iran with great suspicion since the Islamic Revolution, fearing Khomeini's radical ideology would inspire militants across the Middle East.

On Feb. 11 that year, Iran's military stood down after days of street battles, allowing the revolutionaries to sweep across the country while the government of USA -backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi resigned and the Islamic Republic was born.

"The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future", the American president added.

"If this regime makes the awful mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won't be successful and it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate".

The state has played up this year's anniversary as 40 is symbolic of maturity in the Islamic tradition and the age at which Prophet Mohammed received revelations from God.

Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force, attended a rally in the southern city of Kerman.

He also defended the principles America was founded on. "Together, we represent the most extraordinary nation in all of history". The president stressed that many women attempting to cross into the USA illegally get sexually assaulted during the journey.

Iranians are facing mounting economic hardships which many blame on the country's clerical leaders.

"We will not let America become victorious..."

Former public servant Saaghi insisted that it remained paramount for Iranians to stick by the revolution.

Some of the protesters burned USA flags.

"I am very impressed by the strength of the navy", he said, calling it a "primary component" of Israel's defensive and deterrent capabilities.

In Iran, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is the branch of the military responsible for upholding the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
