January 4, The Iran Project – Iranians from all walks of life have taken to the streets of several cities to renew their allegiance to the Islamic establishment and condemn the recent wave of deadly violence in some areas on Wednesday.
Last week, a number of peaceful protests over economic grievances started in several cities, but those gatherings suspiciously changed color and turned ugly when groups of participants, some of them armed, launched attacks on public property, police stations and religious sites.
Iranian authorities have taken turns to censure Washington and its allies for interfering in the country’s domestic affairs.
Several top Iranian officials including the Commander-in-Chief of IRGC, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces , Former IRGC Cmdr. Mohsen Rezaei,Spokesman for Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif, Prosecutor General Mohammad Jaafar Montazeri cautioned over enemies’ plots which are using various tools to deal blows to the Iranian nation and the Islamic establishment during the latest developments.
Commander Jafari announced that the recent days’ riots were part of the most recent plot against Iran and he asserted the plot was definitely foiled.
“This is a divine vow that each difficulty and sedition is followed by an easement,” said Commander Jafari.
Brigadier General Jazayeri, condemned the meddlesome statements of some westerners in support of the protests in Iranian cities.
“The support for the rioters of Iran, by the highest official of US along with some imperialist media shows that there is a new plot to stage a new intrigue in Iran,” said General Jazayeri.
In a tweet, Secretary of the Expediency Council and former IRGC Commander, Rezaei, slammed the interventions of US officials in the recent protests across Iran, saying “US authorities will be once again forced to apologize to the great Iranian nation over their interventions in our domestic affairs; the same way that Clinton had to apologize for the behavior of his predecessors.”
Meanwhile, Montazeri believed that Saudi funds have been used by CIA and Mossad to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere within Iranian borderlines.
“The stature and status of our beloved nation is much higher than being put in the same category with rioters and we have to distinguish between those who have legitimate demands and those who are seeking anarchy,” said Montazeri.
“Behind these riots and anarchies are fierce enemies who have repeatedly received blows from the Islamic Establishment since the time of the Islamic Revolution and have asserted in many occasions that they are after taking revenge from the great nation of Iran, the Islamic Revolution, and the country,” he noted, referring to the footprint of anti-revolutionary agents in the recent riots in some major cities of Iran.
