Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has visited the mausoleum of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini on the eve of the 43rd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
Tuesday marks the return of Imam Khomeini from exile in Paris in 1979, which set off nationwide protests across Iran and culminated in the ouster of the US-backed Pahlavi regime ten days later.
Every year, the occasion is remembered with Ten-Day Dawn Celebrations in Iran and other countries by sympathizers of the Islamic Republic.
Ayatollah Khamenei also visited Behesht Zahra cemetery where many Iranians martyred in the course of the revolution and during the 1980-1988 war of the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein on Iran are lying in eternal rest.
The Islamic Revolution, which in 1979 threw into the dustbin of history the Anglo-American Pahlavi potentate, is viewed today as a potent unstoppable force in the region and beyond.
Examples in this regard are the heroic struggles of the Palestinian and Lebanese people against Israel.
The Syrian government and people have also succeeded in saving their country from the plot of the US and its allies to dismember it, thanks to the inspiration from Iran.
In Yemen, popular forces have valiantly fought off Saudi-Emirati invaders by taking the battle to the enemy’s camp.
In many countries, supporters of the Islamic Revolution celebrate the anniversary along with the Iranians.
