Iran – Uprising, No. 25
Monday night, November 18, intense clashes broke out between the people and the suppressive forces in Islamshahr, south of Tehran.
When the State Security Force (SSF) failed to gain control, the IRGC was dispatched to the scene to crackdown. In many cases, IRGC personnel wear SSF uniforms.
During the clashes, the office of Islamshahr’s criminal Friday prayer leader Mohammad Nowrouzi was demolished, his staff escaped and his car was set on fire. The state-own Martyrs Foundation building and the IRGC-owned chain stores in the city were completely destroyed. Some 95 percent of the banks in Islamshahr and Chahar Dangeh have been torched. Only a few banks remain operational in the city.
In the Monday evening clashes, several rebellious youths were killed. Three of them, Iman Rassouli, 20, Arash Kohzadi, 17, and Mohammad Mehdi Haghgou, 21, were shot in the head, and another, Mohsen Jafar-Panah, 22, was shot in the stomach. Forty others were wounded.
