Iran starts celebrations for 44th anniversary of Revolution

Iran starts celebrations for 44th anniversary of Revolution

Tehran, Feb 1 (Prensa Latina) Bells of some 110,000 schools and churches in Iran rang on Wednesday in unison as a sign for the start of the festivities for the first 44 years of the Islamic Revolution.

Those bells along with the sirens of trains, factories, and ships in the port cities, rang at 09:33 hours, local time, to commemorate the historic landing of Imam Khomeini’s plane in this capital in 1979.

Khomeini founded the Islamic Republic, and his return to the country marked the beginning of a new era.

The overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi’s reign concluded only ten days later.

A mass motorized march commemorated the event held in Tehran since early Wednesday, in which a military parade of hundreds of Army members marched along the main avenues.

The Iranian people are celebrating today the “Decade of Dawn,” a ten-day celebration from Imam Khomeini’s return to Tehran to the triumph of the Islamic Revolution on February 11, 1979.
