First, protests started in the cities of Ahvaz, Zahedan, Kerman, Kermanshah, and Ardebil.

During heavy clashes between the brave people of Zahedan and security forces, dozens of people of this city were killed. State news agencies reported the death toll up to 19 accounts. The IRGC intelligence chief of the Sistan and Baluchistan named Colonel Ali Mousavi was reportedly killed. Despite severe internet disruption, people managed to send footage from the scene.

More reports of protests and clashes have come from Tehran, Ahvaz, Mashhad, Kerman, Ardabil, Saqqez, Karaj, Sanandaj, Dezful, Lahijan, Abadan, Borujard, and Rasht.


Khamenei’s Reps Reveal Regime’s Fear of Uprising

Today, at the Friday prayer sermons in various cities across Iran, while trying to boost morale when addressing the shrinking follower base, the Supreme Leader’s representatives revealed their fear of the popular uprising.

During his Friday prayer sermon, Saeed Hosseini, the Supreme Leader’s representative in Kashan said: “The enemy and the “Global Arrogance” (the regime’s term for smearing the West) with the help of some of their puppets, organized sedition that was far from anything close to a protest, rather it was all about insurrection and chaos. The media activity of the enemy in the recent sedition was 10 times more than that of the sedition of 2009.”

Ali Khatami, Khamenei’s representative in Zanjan told the audience during the Friday prayer sermon: “The extent of the media coverage of this issue (protests) indicated that it was pre-planned and they thought that this sedition was stronger than the seditions of 1998, 2009, 2018 and 2019.”

Mohammad Ebadizadeh, Khamenei’s representative in Bandar Abbas, said: “The recent rioters were formed into three groups. The first group were organized groups of the hypocrites (the regime’s term to smear the MEK). The second group were thugs and criminals who have no intellectual originality and they just enter the field to exploit the space. The third group was also formed by a number of emotional teenagers.”
