Iran: protests in Khoramshahr

On June 20th 2018, protests in Khoramshahr due to water shortages turned violent as Iran’s police forces shot at two ~protesters~.

I’ve seen both Shahi and MEK propagandist outlets on social media decontextualizing this, saying that Iran’s police forces shot at the crowd and killed two protestors.

If you look closely, you can see the two “protestors” are armed. It’s extremely difficult for civilians in Iran to attain guns, which is why it’s important to be critical of these reportings. The man shooting on the bike at the police gets shot, and his partner, instead of helping him, abandons him and takes the gun.

The people were armed (which is highly suspicious) and got shot at after shooting at the police. It’s safe to say the police shooting was provoked by terrorists. It’s likely that these ~protestors~ are affiliated with the MEK or considering this is in Khoramshahr, they could also be Arab separatists. Arab separatists have very little support, and this is not the majority belief of Iran’s Arab population.

Terrorists hijacking protests born from legitimate grievances and frustrations in order to instigate a regime change fueled by corrupt self-interests isn’t exactly an unfamiliar ploy (*cough* SYRIA..HELLO.. *cough). Pro-regime change puppets who are funded by war-mongering politicians who seek to imperialize the region (Masih Alinejad, shahi & MEK propagandists) circulating such propaganda isn’t unfamiliar either.

I’ve seen a lot of people on social media spreading these lies unknowingly, which just goes to show that they didn’t pay attention to what happened with Syria and Iraq because the exact same ploy is being used with Iran.

Regime change has very little support in Iran, even amongst the people protesting due to the crumbling economy because of ^^^this^^^ exact reason. What would be best for Iran right now would be to relieve the sanctions, but those were purposely re-imposed to instigate these protests, so they can again be hijacked by terrorists who will instigate a civil war.
