SSF agents fired tear gas at the demonstrators in the subway and attacked the people on Keshavarz Blvd., but faced the people’s resistance.

In Arak, the youth chanted, “I will kill whoever killed my sister”. They used trash cans to block the path of repressive forces and forced the SSF car that had come to suppress them to flee.

In Rasht, outraged youths blocked the street and forced special unit agents riding on motorcycles to run away by hurling rocks at them. They also set the repressive forces’ vehicles on fire.

In some cities like Fardis in Karaj, people protested and chanted, ” Mojtaba (son of Ali Khamenei) will go to the grave before becoming the leader.”  They blocked the path of suppressive forces. The youth took over the streets by lighting fires and blocking the streets.

In the past three days, the suppressive forces have shot and killed several youths, including Fereydoun Mahmoudi in Saqqez, Mohsen Mohammadi in Diwandarreh, and Reza Lotfi in Dehgolan.

IRNA news agency reported that during the public session of the parliament on Tuesday, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, speaker of the regime’s parliament, said: “The enemy has put incitement and creating chaos in the country on its agenda as its routine. Unfortunately, some people inside the country are willingly or unwillingly moving in the direction of the enemy’s wishes. But our dear people have shown their political acumen and have not and will not cooperate with the MEK which has martyred thousands of ordinary people and now claims that one person had died.

On Tuesday, the state-run website Eslam-e No reported a tweet by Mohsen Mansouri, the governor of Tehran, in which he wrote: “The main elements of tonight’s gatherings in Tehran were fully organized, trained, and had plans to create disturbances in Tehran. Pouring diesel fuel on roads, hurling rocks, attacking the police, setting fire to motorbikes and garbage cans, destroying public property, etc. are not things that ordinary people would do”.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), saluted the arisen youths and said that Iran is united in the uprising for freedom. Rebellious cities, from the capital Tehran to the west and east, north, and south, are joining together. The resounding cries of “this month is the month of sacrifice, Seyyed Ali (Khamenei) will be overthrown” and “this is the last message, the regime itself is the target” has shaken the mullahs’ regime’s pillars in the streets of Tehran.
