On May 17, violent clashes broke out in the Iranian city of Kazerun between demonstrators and Iranian security forces. The local police station was set on fire.
At least five citizens have been killed, scores were injured, and dozens arrested.
Many social media users in Iran are criticizing state-run media for preferring to cover events in Gaza instead of reporting on Kazerun, using slogans like “(The government) is supporting Gaza and committing crimes in Kazerun.”
