Life-size replicas of Iranian-made cruise and ballistic missiles stood in a statement of defiance after the USA past year reimposed sanctions following its withdrawal from a deal on Tehran´s nuclear programme.

On Monday, Iranian state television broadcast images of people carrying Iranian flags and standing out in cold, rainy weather. "The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday.

Referring to Iran as "the Mother Land", Rouhani said that during the rule of "the traitor Qajar dynasty 205 years ago", large portions of lands were separated from Northern Iran and the caucuses. "But it does not mean we support corruption of some officials and their betrayal of the oppressed people".

Iranians visit a weaponry and military equipment exhibition in the capital Tehran on Febraury 2, 2019, organized on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

Last year, Iran cracked down on protests over poor living standards in over 80 cities and towns that posed the most serious challenge to its clerical leadership since a 2009 revolt over disputed elections.

Prices of food, especially meat, have risen a lot since U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran.

In his address on Tehran's Azadi Square, Rohani said the "enemy will never reach its evil objectives", vowing that Iran will defeat US sanctions.

Trump said he envisioned keeping US troops in Iraq "because I want to be able to watch Iran" during an interview with Margaret Brennan of CBS News that aired February 3. But he remained defiant as Iranians recalled the end of a monarch who catered to the rich and unleashed secret police on dissenters.

The large turnout in state-sponsored rallies, in which USA and Israeli flags were burned, came as Iranians face mounting economic hardships which many blame on the country's clerical leaders.

"The United States does not have the courage to fire a single bullet at us despite all its defensive and military assets".

The Israeli prime minister's comments came in direct response to IRGC political affairs spokesman Yadollah Javani, who warned earlier on Monday that Iran would attack Israel if threatened by Washington.

"If this regime makes the very bad mistake of trying to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, it will not succeed", he said.

"I do not ignore the Iranian regime's threats, but I'm not impressed by them, either", Netanyahu said in a taped statement. "They should take this into account".

Washington and the Arab world have viewed Iran with great suspicion since the Islamic Revolution, fearing Khomeini's radical ideology would inspire militants across the Middle East.

Iran and Saudi Arabia are locked in proxy wars in Iraq, Yemen and Syria.

Israel and Iran have not maintained diplomatic relations since the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
