Iran Army cmdr: Nation challenged US fragile majesty on 13th Aban

Tehran Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said on Monday that the Iranian nation challenged and humiliated the United States in November 1979 to decry the oppression exercised by the US against Iranian people.

Mousavi made the remarks in his address to the Student Day ceremony underway across the country.

November 4, 1979 - 13th Aban- is named in Iran as the Student Day, which marks the take-over of the US embassy in Tehran.

As the Army commander said, 13th Aban is the day on which the US-led hegemonic power suffered a setback.

The 13th Aban rallies are underway in the Iranian cities to protest the US hostility to Iran.
