Iranians to Hold Nationwide Rallies to Condemn Trump’s Remarks
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian people from all walks of life will stage rallies across the country on Friday to voice their outrage over recent comments by US President Donald Trump against the Islamic Republic in the United Nations General Assembly.
Iran’s Islamic Propagation Coordination Council, in a statement on Thursday, announced that after this week’s Friday Prayers, the worshippers would participate in the demonstrations across the country.
During the rallies, the participants will chant slogans against the Washington and Tel Aviv regimes, including “Down with the US,” and “Down with Israel.”
The rallies would come in response to Trump, who claimed during his first address to a session of the UN General Assembly that Iran’s “support for terror is in stark contrast to the recent commitments of many of its neighbors to fight terrorism and halt its financing.”
The assertion came while it is the US and some of its regional allies, including Saudi Arabia, that have been staunch supporters of Takfiri terrorists in the Muslim states of Syria and Iraq.
It is no secret that Daesh Takfiri terrorists were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government.
Tehran, meanwhile, has been praised for its support for anti-terrorism efforts by the governments in Damascus and Baghdad.
