Iran and Rojhilat'ta 'gasoline rebellion' continues. The regime cut telephone and internet lines, while Spay Pastaran and Khamenei's representatives threatened the demonstrators.
The popular uprising that started last Friday after the increase in oil prices in Iran and spread to all of Iran's 31 provinces and Rojhilat in a short time has not stopped.
The Iranian regime has cut internet lines but since yesterday morning has also cut landlines to avoid news of what is going on to be spread abroad and also to avoid communication among the demonstrators in different cities and regions.
New cities joined the protests
Despite the regime repression new cities in Zencan, Simnan, Hemedan joined the demonstrations.
No communication makes it difficult to have information
The main problem with having no internet and no phones, i.e. no communication is that it is impossible to have information, also as to how many demonstrators have been killed and wounded so far.
It was learned that the Iranian security forces used real bullets but there are conflicting information on the number of dead, wounded and detainees.
According to some sources, more than 30 people have been killed, a thousand people have been injured and 6 thousand people have been detained in the demonstrations. According to other sources, the number of dead is over 200, the number of wounded exceeded 3 thousand. Only in the city of Meriwan in Rojhilat Kurdistan, 12 people were killed and 60 injured.
Threats from regime forces
The Iranian regime has began to work in order to find solutions to the demonstrations. While the Iranian Parliament decided to convene and discuss the unrest, statements from representatives of military and semi-military civilian forces and executives have been issued threatening demonstrators.
The Spay Pastaran forces known as Revolutionary Guards said in a statement that "foreign powers" are behind the demonstrations in Iran, and argued that the United States, Israel and the family of the deposed Iranian Shah Reza Pahlavi are involved. The statement stressed that Spay Pastaran's forces were ready to act with the security forces to suppress demonstrations.
A threat against demonstrators also came from Ayatollah Lutfullah Dejkam, the Iranian religious leader Ali Khamenei's representative. "If the Fars State Security Council fails to stop the demonstrators tomorrow, we will go to the streets in Shiraz with militia forces (Besic)," Dejdam said.
According to the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA), Dejkam also think that the demonstrations are fed from outside.
Real info from inside Iran is very hard to find now. This is a source that is in the region and I trust.
Not sure this is reliable, but if true will add a new dimension.

I wonder if any of the commercial spy satellites like google maps are getting any visuals.
Or does a little piece of 150 billion in cash buy them off?
Man, oh, man, THIS would solve soooo much..!!!
Keepin my fingers crossed..!!
Dreaming of a newly pre-Muzzie IRAN..!!
Don’t trust anyone over 30, **Bring It All DOWN**..!!
If bammy were still pres, he would be sending secret money for the iranians to eliminate the protesters.
Even if it happened, our Press would still be focused on this Ukraine Garbage.
Yes, Obozo would have. He did sent the terrorists there a plane load of US dollars. Literally Pallets of US currency.
As Rush says, “Follow the money”
Guess we will have to wait and see.
I remember the 2009 revolts over the stolen election there.
Chips are much higher now. And Pres. Trump is not Obozo.
I REMEMBER NEDA, THE WAY SHE BLED OUT
I would love to see the ayatollahs get their comeuppance.
Yes. I want them gone. Ended.
They are Great Evil.
Yep. I remember.
Regime change in Iran would truly be a game-changer. I hope and pray for such an outcome, with as little bloodshed as possible. As Thomas Jefferson famously said,”The Tree of Liberty must be watered from time to time with blood of tyrants and patriots.”
I saw another report that there had been a big call up of their basij riot control thugs - a half million according to that rumor, which would be about everybody.
Even with their part time hired muscle, the regime is far outnumbered by the population. If people start individually attacking the regime personnel themselves, instead of clustering together into crowds for focused oppression. The regime cant be everywhere at once. Even big demonstrations in a few dozen different cities at once would be challenging for them to manage and resource.
Maybe a tipping point is coming. A lot of Iranians have to have been preparing for it, as things have clearly been heading for an economic crash, and possible regime collapse all year. Individual escape plans are likely widespread in the regime.
A few pictures of mullahs and Revolutionary Guards officers hanging from streetlights, might go a long way, in setting off a stampede. Some will probably try ordering mass murder if things get really bad for them, because murder has been the underpinning of the regime, they have been conditioned to rely on it. But when such oppressive regimes mechanisms of oppression fail to meet the task, their end is typically swift.
Maybe this big tax on essential fuel will be their Let them eat cake moment.
Look at that, kids! It’s a photo of a place without a 2nd amendment!
Where cops on mini-bikes can suppress you with billy clubs.
