Hawzah News Agency (Qom, Iran) – In an interview with Hawzah News' correspondent in the sidelines of February 11 rallies to commemorate the anniversary of Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution, senior Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Hussein Noori Hamedani remarked, "Once again, the Iranian nation created an epic by their massive participation in the revolution rallies and renewing their pledge with the founder of Islamic Revolution."
The Shia source of emulation added, "Today's huge Iranians turnout was a crushing response to US administration and its allies who are the enemies of Islam and the revolution."
In the end, Grand Ayatollah Noori Hamedani asserted, "This nation of Iran have always stood by the Islamic Revolution and have proved their allegiance to principles of this revolution."
It's noteworthy that Millions of Iranians have taken to the streets nationwide to mark the 39th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in a show of force; just weeks after scattered riots hit several cities and towns.
This year's rallies came after US President Donald Trump cheered the rioters in a volley of tweets which angered many Iranians who view the American leader's entreaties as "hypocritical" after he called Iran a "terrorist nation."
