Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the high turnout in nationwide rallies celebrating the 39th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution gave a firm response to foreign enemies. Iranians on Sunday took to the streets across the country to mark the occasion; just weeks after scattered riots instigated by hostile countries hit several cities. Describing the massive marches as a great event, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "The grandeur of your demonstrations today, which according to accurate estimates was more crowded than previous years, gave a firm and crushing response to foreigners and enemies and those with a weak resolve," Press TV reported.  The Leader stated that based on their flawed conception of Iranians, enemies did their utmost to make this year's ceremony devoid of energy and even turn it against itself. "You showed off to them the liveliness and dynamism of the revolution in practice and shouted out your commitment to the ideals of the late Imam [Khomeini] through your slogans and your warm presence."
