Iran's Missile Launch Failures Likely Linked To U.S. Sabotage, Report Says


An Iranian photojournalist who captured an iconic image in late 2017 during a series of protests that gripped her country has spoken out on social media after the picture appeared in a politically-charged tweet by President Donald Trump. The resulting frustration led to protest rallies across the country a year ago.

Iranians carried cardboard cutouts of dogs.

The Iranian people "will not stop saying "Death to America" as long as the USA acts malicious" toward Iran, Khamenei said, referring to Trump's State of the Union address in which the American president, among other things, said: "We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants death to America".

A commander from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) threatened to destroy the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa if the United States attacks Iran, state news agency IRNA reported, provoking a strongly worded response from Israel. She said her photo was also used by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last July, when he called on members of the Iranian diaspora in the U.S. to back economic protests in Iran.

Pointing to the United States government's strategy for negotiations, the Leader said Iran can enter the "dangerous game" of negotiations with the U.S. only when it achieves the desired might in the economic, political and cultural spheres and resist Washington's strategy of propaganda campaign and pressures.

"With Iran's support to Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and Yemen, the enemies could not succeed in their plots", Rouhani told the rally.

"Iran is the only state which can help the regional countries", he said, emphasizing that "without Iran, the prospect of success for any plan in the region is dim". Iranian leaders say they are protecting national interests.

Iran also displayed a number of its ballistic missiles on the streets leading to Azadi Square despite western calls on Iran to halt development of its controversial missile program.

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the Revolutionary Guards deputy head, said Tehran would not withdraw forces from the region, dismissing US calls for Iranian clout to be curbed.
