Iran – demonstrators in Tehran resist security forces’ attempts to disperse their protest rally

Iran is in turmoil. Fifteen months after Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei used the Covid-19 pandemic as a shield against social protests, calling it an “opportunity” and a “blessing,” this “opportunity” is gradually coming to an end and every passing day, the hatred of Iran’s 80-million population toward the regime becomes more evident.

Iran: 60% Uranium Enrichment

The Iranian regime has installed dozens of advanced centrifuges to accelerate uranium enrichment, the United Nations' atomic watchdog disclosed Monday, a revelation representing just the latest in a series of provocative breaches of the 2015 nuclear deal by the mullahs' regime.
