Iran celebrated its yearly ‘Day of Protests’ against Israel Friday; burning Israeli flags, trashing posters of Prime Minister Netanyahu, and slamming the United States over its decision to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem.
Officials in Tehran used the occasion to blast the Jewish State’s ongoing conflict with Hamas and other terror organizations in Gaza; most of which are backed by Iranian money, weapons, and military support.
“The US, Saudi Arabia and Israel want to put Iran in a corner, but they don’t know that with this action they are threatening their own security,” said parliament speaker Ali Larijani.
Thousands of protesters assembled on the streets of Tehran to hear their leaders trash Israel, the US, and their allies across the globe, with many chanting “Death to America” while burning the US flag.
The demonstrations come just weeks after President Trump announced his decision to withdraw the US from the Iranian nuclear agreement, sparking outrage across the Islamic Republic.
