Iran Protests: Martyrs of the Nationwide Uprising Honored on 40th Day Memorial Despite Unprecedented Security Measures.
Terrified of the eruption of another nationwide uprising on the 40th day memorial of the martyrs of the November uprising, the clerical regime not only cut off the Internet but also mobilized all of its suppressive forces, including the IRGC, the State Security Force, the Bassij, plainclothes and intelligence ministry agents, as well as the mounted and dismounted anti-riot units in many parts of Tehran and other cities in a frantic effort to prevent the ceremonies honoring the martyrs.
In some cities such as Karaj and Shiraz, the regime deployed helicopter surveillance. Elsewhere, like Orumiyeh, snipers took positions on rooftops.
