Iran’s supreme leader blames America and Israel for the protests in Iran

Iran’s supreme leader has blamed the US and Israel for the protests sweeping the country following the death of a woman whilst in police custody.

The leader of the Islamic Republic has always attributed the popular protests in Iran against the Islamic Republic to America and Israel.

Without mentioning the name of Mahsa Amini, he said about her death: “Our hearts also burned, But what is not normal is that some people, without proof or an investigation, have made the streets dangerous, burned the Quran, removed hijabs from veiled women and set fire to mosques and cars.

I say clearly that these riots and the insecurity were engineered by America and the occupying, false Zionist regime [Israel], as well as their paid agents, with the help of some traitorous Iranians abroad.”

Meanwhile, with the continuation of anti-government protests in Iran, the Iran Human Rights Group, announced that at least 150 people have been killed in protests across the country in the last two weeks.

Despite the increase in the number of dead and the severe suppression of protests, the videos published on social networks show that demonstrators in different cities of Iran have continued their protest.
