Nine people reported killed in clashes as protests continue across Iran

Protests across Iran

The highest-ranking United States official's direct expression of support for rioters in recent protests in Iran and the supportive voices by a number of other governments and Western media outlets reveal that the U.S. had plans for inciting a sedition inside Iran, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Monday.

Mehr reported a gunman had killed a policeman and wounded three other officers during a protest in the same location - the fist reported fatality among Iran's security forces.

In the latest development, state TV reported that six rioters were killed during an attack on a police station in the town of Qahdarijan when they tried to steal guns from the facility.

That brings the number of people killed in six days of unrest to at least 20 people.

The protests are widely described as the largest since 2009, when demonstrators took to the streets to following the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Around 100 people were arrested overnight in the same region, state television reported.

Iranian authorities have also blocked access to Instagram and Telegram social media Apps in the country after a video of two dead demonstrators who passed away after sustaining gunshot wounds fired by anti-riot police went viral.

Cars were reportedly torched in Tehran after nightfall on Monday as protesters chanted anti-government slogans in defiance of an appeal for calm by president Hassan Rouhani on Sunday night when he promised more "space for criticism".

Israel's assessment reportedly said that while the unrest had damaged Rouhani's image, "parts of the public still believe in him or at the very least see him as a lesser of all evils".

The towns are all in Iran's central Isfahan province, about 215 miles south of Tehran.

Bahrain's Shiite community generally travels to Iran for religious reasons, although relations between the countries are strained over allegations by Manama that Tehran interferes in its internal affairs.

In a statement on Twitter, the ministry cautioned that Iran was seeing "large-scale disturbances and an unstable security situation" as well as "grave acts of violence".

There have been reminders of the continued support for the regime among conservative sections of society, with pro-government students staging counterdemonstrations at the University of Tehran over the weekend.

"The involvement and contribution of diverse groups in the recent protests, from the progenies of the infamous House of Pahlavi to the gang leaders of the terrorist group of MKO, and the mercenaries of ISIL, in the puzzle of new US-backed intrigue shows the volume, the vastness, and the measure of their animosity toward the big nation of Iran to the public opinion of the world", reiterated the Iranian senior military commander.
