イランは2017/12の暴動を仕掛けたとサウジなどを非難

イランが2017/12末から新年にかけての暴動を仕掛けたとサウジなどを非難しています。扇動者も一部逮捕されており、想定されたように海外からの仕掛けによるものであれば、イランが強く出ることは確実。緊張が高まります。それにしてもサウジはヘタです。なお、イランは西暦ではなくイラン暦で春分を新年とする太陽暦です。今新年を祝う風習はありません。

暴動の実態がよく分かりません。政権支持のデモもあったようです。反政府デモには武装した者がいたと言われています。警察で武器を奪おうとして殺された者も何人もいるとされています。イランのような対外的に緊張の強い国で武器を使用した暴動が起きることは通常では考えられません。

海外からの資金援助を伴う扇動があったとしたら、それをキャッチし未然防止できなかったイラン当局は大きな手落ちを犯しました。

トランプとネタニヤフがはしゃいでいるところを見ると、両国の関与はほぼ間違いないと言えるでしょうか。

Iran’s enemies ‘using money & weapons to undermine government’ – supreme leader Khamenei
Enemies of Iran are using money, weapons and political warfare to create problems for the country’s leaders, the influential Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said amid a wave of anti-government protests gripping the Islamic Republic.

Speaking on Tuesday, the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei offered his impression of the protests that have taken place across Iran over the past week, with people protesting against rising food prices and unemployment.

“As for the recent days’ developments [in the country], enemies have been united to create problems for the Islamic system by using various means… including money, weapons, politics and security apparatus,” Ayatollah Khamenei, as cited by state news agency IRNA.

Without singling out any nation, the Supreme Leader said “the enemies have always been looking forward to finding a chance to deliver a blow to the Iranian nation.”

He did not go into specifics and refrained from offering a detailed assessment of the protests, only adding: “I have a lot more to say about these developments but will share them with our dear people at an appropriate time.”

Other Iranian officials also suggested that anti-government rallies, some of which took aim at Ayatollah Khamenei or turned violent, may have been provoked from outside. Speaking to parliament on Monday, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Saudi involvement had played a role in sparking the protests: “They [the Saudis] have blatantly said that we will create problems in Tehran.”

He also vowed that his government will redouble efforts to improve the country’s economic situation, while decreasing unemployment, air pollution and inflation, FARS news agency reported.

On Tuesday, Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, accused Saudi Arabia of fanning popular unrest through social media. According to the security chief, “around 27 percent of the hashtags which have been made belong to the Saudis … the hashtags about the situation in Iran have been launched from the US, Britain and Saudi Arabia.”

“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,” Shamkhani said, as cited by FARS.

Amid the growing protests across the country, some world leaders have voiced their support for the anti-government movement. In his first series of tweets in 2018, US President Donald Trump maintained the Iranians, having “little food, big inflation and no human rights,” are acting “against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime.”

In a previous tweet, Trump claimed Iran “is failing at every level despite the terrible [2015 nuclear] deal made with them by the Obama Administration.” He added: “The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food and for freedom.”

Earlier, Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz told Israeli Army Radio he hopes the protesters in Iran will prevail “I can only wish success to the Iranian people in the struggle for freedom and democracy,” he said on Monday, as cited by Reuters. “If the people succeed in achieving freedom and democracy, many of the threats on Israel and the entire region today will disappear,” the intelligence official added.

The overall death toll in Iran has reached 20 after six days of unrest, according to state TV. Some 450 people have been arrested in the last three days, security deputy governor of Tehran Ali Asghar Nasserbakht told ILNA news agency, adding that about 100 of those had been arrested on Monday.

Russia, Turkey, Syria reject foreign interference in Iran developments
Russia, Turkey and Syria have rejected foreign interference in the events unfolding in Iran, expressing hope that there will be no more violence and deaths in the country.

In a statement on Monday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said, “This is Iran’s internal affair,” adding that “external interference destabilizing the situation is inadmissible.”

“We express the hope that the situation won’t develop under the scenario of bloodshed and violence,” the ministry said.

Sporadic violence has erupted in some Iranian cities since Thursday, when people held a number of initially peaceful protests against price hikes and economic problems.

The violence turned deadly in different cities, where groups of participants, some of them armed, began to launch attacks on public property, police stations and religious centers.

Over a dozen people have so far been killed amid the violence, according to state media reports.

Meanwhile, neighboring Turkey on Tuesday said it was concerned by reports of people dying and public buildings being damaged in Iran.

“We believe it is necessary to avoid violence and not succumb to provocations,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding it hoped foreign interventions would be avoided.

The comments come as the US and Israel have reacted gleefully to the developments in Iran and voiced support for the violence.

Syria on Tuesday condemned Washington and Tel Aviv for meddling in Iran’s domestic affairs, voicing solidarity with the Iranian nation.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry expressed confidence that the Iranian Leadership, government and people will be able to thwart this conspiracy and continue on the path of progress as well as “its role in backing the just causes of peoples.”

Also reacting to the events was a spokeswoman for the EU’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who said in a statement on Monday, “We have been in touch with the Iranian authorities and we expect that the right to peaceful demonstration and freedom of expression will be guaranteed.”

“We will continue to monitor developments,” the spokeswoman added.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said earlier that “freedom of expression” and the right to “demonstrate peacefully within the law” should be respected.

He further called for dialog over issues raised by the protesters which he described as “legitimate and important.”

Johnson further expressed regret about the deaths that occurred amid the violence and called “on all concerned to refrain from violence and for international obligations on human rights to be observed.”

Additionally, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel voiced concern on Monday about the deaths and urged the Iranian government to respect people’s rights.

“We appeal to the Iranian government to respect the rights of the demonstrators to assemble and to peacefully raise their voices,” Gabriel said. He further called on all sides to “refrain from violent actions.”

President Hassan Rouhani has said the Iranian people are completely free to express their criticism of the government or stage protests according to the Constitution and citizenship rights, adding, however, the manner of doing so must result in the improvement of people’s lives and social conditions.

9 more people killed, 100 arrested overnight as nationwide protests in Iran continue – local media
At least 9 people were killed and some 100 were arrested overnight as unrest across Iran entered a sixth day, Iranian media said. The country’s supreme leader accused “enemies of Iran” of orchestrating the demonstrations.

Among those killed were six protesters who had attempted to steal guns from a police station in the town of Qahdarijan, Iranian state TV said, as cited by AP. Another two people were killed in the town of Khomeinishahr, and the ninth fatality was a member of Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard in the town of Najafabad.
The overall death toll after six days of unrest has reached 20 people, according to state TV.

About 450 people have been arrested in the last three days, security deputy governor of Tehran Ali Asghar Nasserbakht told ILNA news agency. About 100 of them were arrested on Monday, he added.

Pro- and anti-government demonstrations have been taking place in Iran since Thursday. Economic hardship and alleged corruption mostly prompted the anti-government rallies.

On Monday Iranian President Hassan Rouhani vowed to double efforts to resolve Iran’s economic problems, unemployment and inflation, Fars agency reported.

Later on Monday Rouhani said that the protests may have been partially stirred up by external forces interested in destabilizing the country. “The enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran are angry with the glory, success, and the progress of the Iranian nation; and they have vowed to bring the regional troubles to Iran,” he said, according to the Iranian Mehr news agency.

The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council described the protests as a “proxy war against the Iranian people”. Ali Shamkhani stated that “Hashtags and messages about the situation in Iran come from the United States, Britain and Saudi Arabia,” according to Tasnim news agency.

Earlier Rouhani stated that citizens are “absolutely free” to protest and criticize the government, but that vandalism was another matter. “Criticism is different from violence and damaging public property,” Rouhani warned.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also accused the Islamic Republic’s foes of instigating the protests. “In recent days, enemies of Iran used different tools including cash, weapons, politics and intelligence apparatus to create troubles for the Islamic Republic,” Khamenei said in a statement.

IRGC Blames US, S. Arabia, MKO for Recent Riots in Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for Political Affairs Brigadier General Rasoul Sanayee took responsible the US, Saudi Arabia, the monarchists and Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group for the recent violent riots in a number of Iranian cities and towns.

"Today, we are witnessing that the anti-revolutionaries, the monarchists, Monafeqin (hypocrites as MKO members are called in Iran), the US and al-Saud as well as a grouplet led by a fugitive clown are misusing the social and economic protests of our country's people and have turned them into riots and sabotage acts," General Sanayee Raad said on Tuesday.

"The slogans chanted in the past two or three days by the rioters clearly showed that Manafeqin and the monarchists are behind this story," he added.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday 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 number of 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.
