NCRI - Furious farmers angry at water shortages have this week staged more demonstrations near the city of Isfahan.

The latest protests come after the regime brutally crushed gatherings of farmers in February this year.

Violent scenes erupted two months ago in the city of Varzaneh when protesters set fire to three buses carrying state security forces.

Several farmers were killed and injured, and at least 160 arrested, by the state's SSF anti-riot squad troops at the time.

They had accused the regime of turning the Zayandehrood River into a parched valley.

The Zayanderood begins on the central plateau of Iran and supplies water to people in the central Iranian provinces of Isfahan and Yazd - but it has dried up over the past four summers.
