Iran Displays 2 Documents on US Role in Sponsoring Terrorism
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's top security official Saeed Jalili released a number of documents detailing US involvement in acts of terror against the Islamic Republic during the November 4th rallies in Tehran on Friday.
Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili made the revelations on US terror moves against Iran on Friday during a ceremony marking the takeover anniversary of the US embassy in Tehran by Iranian students in 1979.
The revelations came a day after Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei described the US as the great terrorist in the world.
We possess one hundred pieces of irrefutable evidence that reveal the US role in directing terrorists for conducting acts of terror in Iran and the region, said Ayatollah Khamenei in an address to thousands of Iranian students on Wednesday.
Ayatollah Khamenei added that Iran will bring shame to the US, advocates of terrorism and the so-called defenders of human rights through the publication of the evidence.
In November 1979, less than a year after the victory of the Islamic Revolution that toppled a US-backed monarchy, Iranian university students calling themselves "students following the line of [the late] Imam [Khomeini]" seized the US embassy in Tehran, which they referred to as 'the den of spies.'
The students justified the takeover by insisting that the compound had become a center of espionage that engaged in planning to overthrow the nascent Islamic Republic establishment in Iran.
The students occupying the embassy later published documents proving that the compound was indeed engaged in schemes and measures to overthrow Iran's Islamic system.
