Iranians took to the streets of Tehran and in other cities and towns across the country on Tuesday for rallies and nationwide celebrations marking the anniversary of Iran's revolution in 1979.
State media said the rallies would take place in more than 5,000 cities, towns and districts all around Iran. In the capital, Tehran, Iranians set off from 12 different neighborhoods toward the central Tehran Freedom Square, where President Hassan Rouhani was due to address the crowds.
This year's anniversary celebrations come amid unprecedented bitterness between Tehran and Washington. Tensions have spiked since President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from Iran's nuclear deal with world powers in May 2018.
