At the start of the third week of the nationwide uprising, many people in Zahedan, Ahvaz, Mashhad, Ardabil, Kermanshah, and several other cities took to the streets and confronted the suppressive forces.

In Zahedan, the brave people protested, chanting, “Death to Khamenei.” The suppressive forces opened fire and many people were killed or injured. Demonstrations and clashes between rebellious youths and suppressive forces continue in different parts of the city, and the sound of gunfire can be heard. The Revolutionary Guard’s helicopters have been flying over the city to control the situation.

Simultaneously, many people in Ahvaz protested, chanting, “Death to Khamenei,” “Have no fear, we are all together,” and resisted the IRGC’s attack and tear gas.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the brave people of Zahedan, Ahvaz, Ardabil, Mashhad, Kermanshah, and other cities which rose at the beginning of the third week of the nationwide uprising, at noon today. Paying homage to the Baluch compatriots martyred at the hands of the IRGC, she called on all youth to come to the help of the people. She urged the United Nations and member states to take immediate action to prevent protesters’ killing and recognize the Iranian people’s right to defend themselves and confront this brutal regime.
