Iran’s State Media Admit MEK Is the Main Threat, Monarchy Is Inconsequential
Iran’s state-run Nasim-e Kermanshah website, in an article on April 24, republished an article previously published by the state-run Nama News and Nasim News agencies. Republishing this article demonstrates the regime’s utter fear of its main opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). This article clearly describes the MEK as the main threat of overthrowing the regime and the organization’s role inside Iran. This article particularly describes the regime’s officials and media speaking of the supporters of monarchy as a “parasite” to prevent people from reaching the main opposition.

Real Coronavirus Numbers in Iran Are About 20 Times More Than Reported
Massoud Younesian, a faculty member at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, told the state-run newspaper “Setareh Sobh” (Morning Star) on April 24, 2020: “I believe that the statistics are systematically much lower than they are. Coronavirus statistics in Iran are reported with a process that subconsciously shows the reported cases much less than the reality, because the test used is not very sensitive and reports only half of the cases.
Also, half of the hospitalized people are tested, and if we accept that only 20 percent of the cases are hospitalized and only half of them are tested, and only half of these tests are positive, we can say that the actual statistics are about 20 times more than what is reported.”
Sunday, April 26, 2020, marks the 164th day since the beginning of the nationwide Iran protests.
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) has identified 755 of the more than 1500 protesters killed by the regime so far.
