NCRI-US Reveals New Details on Iran Protests 

In this conference, a detailed report including names, photos of the martyrs, and repressive measures conducted by the Iranian regime during the uprising was released. 

This report consists of a background, six chapters, and two appendixes. 

 

The background 

 The flame of the recent Iran uprising was initially lit on November 15, 2019, after the sudden tripling of gasoline prices… In subsequent days, gasoline- related slogans took on a secondary role, and instead, people chanted slogans against the regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, and President Hassan Rouhani, while attacking centers of suppression and theft and particularly those affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) 

Under the subtitle ” Events on the Ground”, primary figures and statistics were presented, including the number of impacted provinces, number of impacted cities, number of martyrs, number of wounded, number of detainees, and number of martyrs identified to date. 

Regime centers attacked by protesters 

In the course of six days of unrest, the symbols of the regime’s suppression, theft, and corruption were attacked by the protesters. Fundamentally, all of the centers that were attacked and torched were affiliated to the IRGC or Khamenei machinery and apparatus. Gas stations were one of the most prominent targets for protestors. Chain stores linked to the IRGC, IRGC- affiliated banks, suppressive forces’ vehicles, Bassij centers, offices of mullahs affiliated with Khamenei, and government buildings were among the other targets. People also destroyed or set fire to large posters of Khamenei and those of his predecessor, Khomeini.  

In this report, the Iranian resistance has for the first time exposed details and pictures of 87 of the key officials involved in the senseless, extrajudicial, and violent repression, murder, wounding, and detention of protesters in seven provinces.  

The report highlights some officials as follows:  

  • Mullah Ahmad Khatami, Tehran Friday Prayer and member of the leadership of Council of the Assembly of Experts. 
  • IRGC Brigadier Ali Fadavi, deputy commander in chief of the IRGC 
  • Hessameddin Ashena, Head of the Office of Strategic Assessments, Hassan Rouhani’s adviser 
  • IRGC Brigadier Salar Abnoosh, Operations’ deputy of Bassij Organization 
  • IRGC Brigadier Ramazan Sharif, Spokesman of the IRGC 

Regime’s stance on the MEK’s role in the uprising 

The report has taken a cursory look at the statement and position declared by the regime’s leaders and state-run media that clearly shows that MEK’s resistance units were at the core of the uprising. The MEK resistance units were formed several years ago and have spread throughout the country since.
