Top Security Official Reveals S. Arabia's Support for Recent Protests in Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani lambasted the Saudi government for supporting the recent economic protests in the country, warning that the Saudis will receive a proper response in due time.

Shamkhani underlined that the Saudi government has hired people to provoke the Iranians to participate in street protests, by using the social media and making different hash tags (#) against the government in Iran.

He made the remarks in an interview with the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel on Monday.

"Based on studies, around 27% of the hash tags which have been made belong to the Saudis. Of course, they don’t belong to the Saudi people but the Saudi government, meaning the government of Mohammed bin Salman (the crown prince), launches these hash tags, and those who do this are the Israeli and westerners. The hash tags about the situation in Iran have been launched from the US, Britain and Saudi Arabia," he said.

"They have set up an organization and hired people outside Saudi Arabia to manage it because the Saudis don’t have such a power. Also, the Monafeqin (hypocrites as members of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization - MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI - terrorist group are called in Iran) are also tools and infantry units of this organization," Shamkhani added.

"Certainly, the Saudis will receive a proper response from Iran and they will not understand the origin of this response. The ruling Saudi family is well aware of the danger of our response," he said.

Shamkhani underscored that Saudi Arabia cannot cover the damages it has sustained in the war against Yemen through interfering in Iran's internal affairs and provoking the vigilant Iranian nation.

In relevant remarks on Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani lashed out at certain countries, specially Saudi Arabia, for their attempts to foment unrests in Iran, and promised the nation to accelerate efforts to resolve the economic problems.

Addressing chairpersons of the Iranian parliament's different commissions in Tehran, President Rouhani said that the enemies are angry with Iran's different successes and achievements, including the 2015 nuclear deal, effective fight against terrorist groups and expansion of ties with different world states.

"These have angered our enemy. Our unity was a bullet (arrow) in their eyes and our progress and success in the world of politics and against the US and the Zionist regime was not bearable to them. Our success in the region was not bearable to them," he said.

"They (the Saudis) have blatantly said that we will create problems in Tehran," Rouhani said.

He also vowed that his government will double efforts to resolve the country's economic problems, unemployment, air pollution and inflation.

His remarks alluded to Saudi Arabia’s then deputy crown prince who said in an interview last year that dialogue between his nation and Iran is impossible because of what he called as the latter’s “extremist ideology".

Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Crown prince, who served as Riyadh’s defense minister and second in line to the throne at the time, claimed that his country is a primary target for Iran and charged that Iran sought to control of the Islamic world. “We won’t wait for the battle to be in Saudi Arabia,” Prince Mohammed said, “instead, we’ll work so that the battle is for them in Iran.”

The mainstream media in the West has given a wide coverage to the economic protests in a few Iranian towns in the past few days that each comprised of a few hundred protesters, but none has covered the massive pro-government rallies held in more than 1,200 cities and towns on Saturday.

Russia Deplores Foreign Interference in Iran's Protests as "Unacceptable"
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian foreign ministry in a statement underlined that any foreign interference in Iran's internal protests cannot be accepted, and expressed the hope that protests in Iran will not turn violent and will not result in bloodshed.

"External interference in Iran's internal affairs which may destabilize the situation is unacceptable," the statement said on Monday while referring to the recent street protests in Iran.

In relevant remarks on Sunday, a deputy governor of the Lorestan province in an interview on state TV aired on December 31 blamed "foreign agents" for the deaths of two demonstrators during the protests a day before.

"No shots were fired by the police and security forces. We have found evidence of enemies of the revolution, Takfiri groups and foreign agents in this clash," he said.

On Sunday, media reported that Tehran had temporarily restricted access to social media apps Instagram and Telegram, used by activists to exchange messages about the rallies.

On Monday, Iranian Information and Communications Technology Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said that the restricted access to social networks in Iran amid ongoing protests against the government's economic and social policy is a temporary measure.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Intelligence Ministry identified and detained a number of individuals over their involvement in provoking unrest in the country's major cities.

"Some of the peaceful gatherings that took place in Iran recently to express public demands over the economic situation in the country turned violent due to the presence of suspicious and aggressive elements who caused casualties and damaged public property," the intelligence ministry said.

The ministry continued to make efforts to arrest as soon as possible other individuals, potentially involved in inciting unrest.

Several major cities in Iran, including Tehran, Mashhad, Isfahan and Rasht, have been hit by street protests since December 28, 2017. People have taken to the streets to protest against unemployment, poverty, and the rising cost of living.
In relevant remarks on Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani promised to intensify efforts in order to resolve the existing economic problems, unemployment, inflation as well as air pollution in the country.

On Sunday, media reported that Tehran had temporarily restricted access to social media apps Instagram and Telegram, used by activists to exchange messages about the rallies.

On Monday, Iranian Information and Communications Technology Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said that the restricted access to social networks in Iran amid ongoing protests against the government's economic and social policy is a temporary measure.

The #Iranprotests are a peculiar thing.History shows big protests usually happen in Iran when a clear & specific issue lays the basis for a common view of injustice taking place (ex. 2009 election protests)this time round,no specific unifying issue/clear objective has been cited.
