Iran's general claims anti-regime protests ended in failure
The top commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Brigadier General Mohammad-Ali Jafari said that the biggest anti-regime protests in almost a decade had ended as thousands of people attended rallies in a state-organised display of support for the Islamic republic.
"Today, I can say, is the end of this sedition. Our [good] security status and people’s prudence caused the enemy to experience another failure," the Financial Times cited Mohammad-Ali Jafari as saying.
It was earlier reported that 3 members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) were killed in clashes in the Iranian city of Piranshahr yesterday, according to a statement from the Revolutionary Guards.
At least 22 people have died and 450 have been arrested following violent clashes in Iran as anti-government protests continue across the country since December 28, 2017.
