Parachutists jump off Tehran’s Milad Tower to mark Islamic Republic Day

Parachutists have jumped off Tehran’s Milad Tower, Iran’s tallest, to mark the anniversary of the establishment of the Islamic Republic, which followed the ouster of the Pahlavi monarchy in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The exciting jump-offs took place on Friday, which was the Islamic Republic Day in Iran.

The historic referendum was held two months after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, which toppled the US-backed Pahlavi dynasty.
