Iran Supresses Popular Protests – Iran Desk (Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs)
The protests against the Iranian regime have not subsided. Radio Farda published the names of 138 dead and reported on the arrest of at least 4,800 civilians in 18 provinces.
With the partial resumption of Internet connection, hundreds of civilians sent clips showing the regime using tanks, snipers, helicopters, and direct live-fire on the protesters.
Videos show that in Javanrud, Kermanshah district, troops fired at demonstrators from the roof of the Department of Justice. In Meriwan in the Kurdistan Province, helicopters fired at the demonstrators.
In Sari, protesters were seen blocking the security forces with their bodies against a Basij militia motorcycle charge.
In several cases, the regime’s armed forces are seen fleeing after they were encircled by protesters and their cars wrecked.
Offices of Khamenei’s representatives in various districts were set alight, as were a number of religious seminaries affiliated with the regime.
