If you haven’t noticed, anti-Iranian protests have broken out in Iraq where scores have died after being attacked by Iranian-sponsored militias in Baghdad and elsewhere. Protests are also increasing in Lebanon against the presence of Iranian-backed Hezbollah. Now protests inside of the Islamic Republic of Iran are spinning out of control.
Today Iranian Revolutionary Guard Forces (IRGC) opened fire on the crowd and killed 8 protesters. The Iranian Resistance is pushing for the removal of the Mullah’s regime which has been in power since the fall of the Shah of Iran during the Carter presidency.
As protests rage in over 60 cities, the IRGC has cancelled all leave and sent staffers into the streets to attempt to control the demonstrations. In addition to those killed, a large number of protesters have been wounded.
Protesters have been confirmed to be shouting, “Down with dictator,…Down with Rouhani…Down with Khamenei”.

The Spokesperson reiterated that shooting and injuring people would bear severe punishment and consequences. The Spokesperson warned the IRGC to surrender to the people, turn in their arms, and take heed of the fate of the previous (Shah) regime’s torturers and henchmen.
