On the anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, the IRGC placed a Qadr-F ballistic missile, with a range of 2,000 kilometers, opposite the former embassy building. Demonstrators waved IRGC flags and banners calling for "death to America" and chanted: "Death to Israel!" The footage was posted on the IRGC-affiliated Tasnim News site on November 4.
