The role of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in the attack on Kirkuk and various cities in Iraqi Kurdistan, which displaced a large number of people in the area, once again highlighted the IRGC's destructive role in regional crises.
The Peshmarga Force commander said in Kirkuk on Sunday, October 15, "The Iraqi Army and Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) are not the only ones who attack us. We have 100% accurate knowledge that the IRGC are also present among them."
On Monday morning, October 23, more than two thousand people, whose property was plundered by institutions affiliated with IRGC, judiciary and other state agencies, rallied in front of the regime's parliament. The repressive police force using batons, assaulted the demonstrators and beat them brutally, and tried to disperse the demonstration in which women played a very active role, but was faced with the resistance of the people.
Nearly two thousand Ahvaz people, looted by financial institutions affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and other oppressive institutions, including the Arman Vahdat Cooperative, continued their protests during last week on Wednesday night of October 18. They chanted to the criminal leaders of the regime: "let Syria alone, care about us", "if you reduce your embezzlements a bit, our Problems will be solved", "Death to Saif (Head of the Central Bank of the regime) ", "Khuzestanis die, but never accept ignominy"," I fight, I die, I shall take back my money".
Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the clerical regime, took a position five days after the announcement of the US administration’s new policy against the clerical regime and the terrorist designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Ridiculously claiming that "We do not want to waste our time ... by responding to the President of the United States," he tried to conceal his own and his regime’s alarm. He warned the regime's officials, however, that "We should not remain ignorant of the enemy's plot and conspiracy,… because there are issues whose importance is not less than war" He accused “some officials” of the regime of “negligence” and of being "influenced by the West," saying if they mean what they say, they are "traitors.”
The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) aggression and occupation and the mullahs’ regime affiliated criminal militias in Kirkuk. This aggressive act is taking place while Qassim Soleimani, the head of the terrorist Quds Force, has been plotting for it in Sulaimaniya and Baghdad and other areas of Iraq since a few days ago.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, hailed the demonstrators and those in sit-ins in various cities, especially thousands of Sunday demonstrators in Tehran, whose assets have been stolen by the institutions and foundations affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards, the judiciary, the police and other government agencies. She said these continuous and tireless protests are a clear indication of the will of the Iranian people to overthrow the mullahs’ regime that has had nothing for the Iranian people other than executions, torture, brutality, and plunder.
On Sunday, October 15th, thousands of people whose property was looted by institutions affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and other repressive organs, rallied in the central streets of Tehran, and expressed their anger and disgust at the oppression of Iranian religious rule. Caspian, Padideh Shandiz and Alborz Iranian (Arman), Pardisban and other institutions have been established in recent years by the IRGC, the Judiciary and SSF (State Security Force) under the guise of cooperative enterprises and banks in a chain in cities throughout Iran. They gathered and looted the assets of people from various walks of society.
