According to Mikrofonnews agency (MHA), Kazem Sediqi, Tehran’s Friday Prayer Imam has called the protesters who had taken part in the recent anti-government demonstrations “garbage”.
He has defended the security forces of Iran by saying Iranian security forces didn’t use weapon against the protesters even though they were beaten by the protesters.
“The recent riots were designed from the outside of Iran by the servants of the Israel getting financial supports from the Saudi Arabia”, said Sediqqi.
Thousands of Iranians staged demonstrations against rising prices and corruption in the government in the past several days. More than 20 people were killed by the security forces and nearly 4 thousands were arrested during the protests.
