Tehran police ready to enforce discipline in Bahman 22 rallies

Tehran, Feb 10, IRNA – Tehran police commander expressed readiness to enforce complete discipline during Bahman 22 (Feb 11) rallies to mark anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Extending congratulations over the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, Brigadier General Hossein Rahimi said enemies are trying to show Iran as inefficient by imposing sanctions.

US officials' behaviors indicate their hostility with Iranians since their sanctions targeted Iranian people, he added.

He went on to say that sanctions are aimed at creating rift between people and officials.

The Islamic Revolution of 1979 came to culmination on Bahman 22, 1357 (February 11, 1979) when the last cabinet of the previous regime was overthrown by the masses who flooded the streets of Tehran at the time.

This year, hundreds of thousands of people are set to hit the streets of Tehran to commemorate those days as well as show their support for the government and the state at a crucial time when the country has been faced with unilateral US sanctions.

City officials have marked 12 routes from nearly all over the capital where the marches are set to take place. They will all end up in Azadi Square (Freedom, in Persian), a historic place at the heart of Tehran that resounds in the minds of those Iranians who took part in the Revolution. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is also set to address the masses there.
