While Ebrahim Raisi, henchman of the 1988 massacre, stressed yesterday “the need for the Health Ministry’s strong support for the domestically produced COVID-19 vaccines,” today the regime’s Minister of Health admitted that the domestic vaccine was nothing more than a mirage and so far, only 14 million doses have been produced.” Speaking with the State TV today, he added, “If we want to delay (treatment) now until 160 million doses of domestic vaccines that we need are delivered, we will have to wait a long time.” The remarks by the regime’s Health Minister are an explicit acknowledgment of the fact that Khamenei is responsible for the mass murder of people who died because of the ban on the import of the COVID-19 vaccines.
