Iranian university students stormed the US embassy in Tehran, which had turned into a hub of espionage against Tehran, less than a year after the Islamic Revolution's success in toppling a US-backed monarchy.
The Iranian people, especially students, attended rallies all throughout the country to commemorate this day.
The protests on November 4 this year take place in the midst of violent, foreign-backed riots that have killed dozens of citizens as well as security personnel.
On October 28, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the Intelligence Organization of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) jointly released a statement highlighting the significant role that foreign intelligence services, particularly the CIA, played in planning the recent violent riots in Iran.
