“In recent days, Iran’s enemies have used various tools, including money, weapons, politics and intelligence apparatus, to create crises for the Islamic Republic,” Khamenei said in an interview with Reuters.
“I have a lot to say to our dear people but it will be timely,” he said.
The people of Iran live in poor economic conditions because the authorities are acting as a result of the implementation of their foreign policies in the region. Non-Persian peoples, including Kurdish and Arab, are subjected to oppressive practices, displacement and systematic policies that prevent them from speaking their language and reviving their culture.
During the protests, the demonstrators chanted “Death to Rouhani” slogans, “Leave Syria and Lebanon and turn to us,” as well as attack on police stations and burn them to images of Iranian leaders, including religious leaders.
