Mohammad Javad Hajali Akbari, head of the Policy Council of the Friday prayer Imams said during a state-staged rally: “We know your infantry as well as those mercenaries that the Iranian nation no longer considers Iranians. From the hypocrites (the regime’s term for smearing the MEK) to the known and unknown counter-revolutionaries gangs, we will deliver them to the blade of revenge and hope that they will be severely punished with the power of our security, military, and law enforcement as well as the determination of the judicial system.”

Mohammad Ali Qazi Dezfuli, the Supreme Leader’s representative in Dezful said: “If his excellency (the Supreme Leader) allows, we will wrap up all the rioters in a scroll and in one hour and teach them a lesson that will be remembered in history.”

Calling on the regime to restrict the internet, Reza Sadr Hosseini, another state official said: “Unfortunately, most of these events we are observing in our own country is because the internet is totally loose. Many people have been really worried about this issue for some time now.”

“Among the other active groups in the riots of the past few days, there were thugs and hooligans who accompanied the hypocritical movements and destroyed public property that belongs to the nation.”
