The clerical regime and its criminal officials, without paying attention to the pain of the poor and homeless people, have tried to cover up the dimensions of the disaster, and, on the other hand, to suppress the formation of social protests and popular anger and disgust through suppressive measures. Immediately after the earthquake, Khamenei sent the IRGC commander Mohammad Ali Jafari and deputy commander of the Basij Ali Fazli to the earthquake areas. Instead of sending aid convoys and deploying forces to help people, the Revolutionary Guards and the repressive forces have sent a column of vehicles of anti-insurgency units and IRGC motorcycles to the area, which sparked outrage and disgust among the people. According to eyewitnesses, the IRGC has played no role in helping the people, and its only mission is to prevent popular protests.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, expressed her condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in the last night earthquake in different areas, including Qasr-e Shirin, Islamabad, Sar-e pol Zahab, Salas Babajani and Kerend.
Reiterating the criminal background of the mullahs’ regime’s neglect and irresponsibility to save the people’s lives in such incidents, Mrs. Rajavi asked the youth, especially those in western provinces, to rescue the people who are trapped under debris, and to deliver their aids directly to the stricken people and the injured. She added that just opposite to the Velayat-e faqih regime, it is now a time of solidarity, and helping the stricken people and saving them is a sacred national duty.
Iranian regime is engulfed with Major concerns over the Revolutionary Guards’ (IRGC) terrorist designation and the implementation of new U.S. sanctions, known as CAATSA, as it appears in the remarks resorted by its senior officials.
“Implementing CAATSA means sanctioning the establishment’s official military force and they can even sanction the government under the pretext of its cooperation with the IRGC,” said judiciary Chief Sadeq Larijani. (Vatan-e Emrooz daily, October 31st)
The Iranian Resistance welcomes the approval of legislation by the U.S. House of Representatives to impose further sanctions against the clerical regime and its senior officials for production and proliferation of ballistic missiles and views it as a necessary step vis-a vis the regime’s belligerent and terrorist policies.
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.”
While congratulating the noble teachers and education staff of Iran on the occasion of the International Teacher’s Day, the Education Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran praises the teachers’ struggle and emphasizes its decisive role in the popular struggle of the Iranian people to overthrow the anti-human clerical regime and establish democracy and freedom in Iran.
Recognition of the NCRI as the only democratic alternative to the clerical regime is indispensable for rectifying the U.S.’s past disastrous policy on Iran
In a portion of his address to the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly on September 19, U.S. President Donald Trump made remarks about the people of Iran and the religious fascism ruling the country. He accurately attested to the fact that “the longest-suffering victims of Iran's leaders are, in fact, its own people.” He also said, “The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change.”
