On Monday, November 18, on the fourth day of the nationwide uprisings, Tehran and many other cities, including Shiraz, Isfahan, Karaj, and Kermanshah, were scenes of clashes and skirmishes between protesters and rebellious youth on the one hand and the regime's suppressive forces on the other, including State Security Forces (SSF), the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), special anti-riot units and plainclothes agents.
In many instances, protesters succeeded in pushing back the regime's assailants.
In Isfahan, rebellious youth torched several state-owned banks as well as the regime’s seminaries. They also damaged a telecommunications center in one of the regions of this city. The youth took down a number of the regime's closed-circuit security cameras.
In Khomeini Shahr (formerly Sedeh), youth and SSF agents clashed and protesters set banks on fire. In order to prevent more people from joining the protests, the regime's mercenaries fired tear gas at people's houses.
In Tehran, protesters torched a motorcycle belonging to the IRGC Bassij forces as well as an SSF station. In Tehran Pars, rebellious youth overturned a minibus belonging to the suppressive SSF and set it on fire. In Eslamshahr’s Marlik district in southern Tehran, protesters set 15 banks on fire.
In Karaj, rebellious youth torched most of the banks and the regime's centers of theft and plunder. They also assembled on the Tehran-Karaj main highway and blocked it.
In Shiraz, people attacked the office of the city's Friday prayer leader and representative of the regime's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and set it on fire.
