Reported by PMOI/MEK
Iran, Jan. 15, 2019 - Members of Resistance Units, a network associated directly to the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), is reporting new measures in Tehran and Shiraz, two of the country’s largest cities.
Members of Resistance Unit 112 in Tehran set fire to a large poster of Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. They took footage of their brave measures and went on to post it on the internet.
In Shiraz, members of Resistance Unit 97 targeted the entrance of a Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Basij base located on the city’s Sanaye (Industrial) Boulevard near the Mirzay-e Shirazi Avenue.
These brave individuals are risking their lives considering the fact that if arrested they would face detention, torture, long prison terms and even execution. The Iranian regime considers any support for the PMOI/MEK as punishable by death.
These measures are also sounding alarm bells among Iranian regime officials about the PMOI/MEK resistance units and warnings about the threat of another uprising sweeping the country.
Sarat, a state-run media outlet in Iran, wrote the following on January 4:
“While[Khamenei] has called on the people and officials to be aware and not be caught off guard during 2019, it is worth taking a look at the main element that is suggesting to the U.S. to invest in such initiatives… The presence of the [PMOI/MEK]’s powerful lobbies, whom are currently working in Trump’s inner circle, shows very well that the enemy is counting on the [PMOI/MEK]’s policies to launch more unrest inside the country. Establishing [PMOI/MEK] resistance units is more proof in this regard.”
These warnings continued at an even more significant level.
“When we take a closer look at the slogans chanted by employees of the National Steel Group in Ahvaz, we see that these slogans focused on simple living conditions. Day by day, with resistance unit members gaining influence inside the workers’ ranks, the slogans and the rally gained a more anti-regime perspective to its nature.”
Coinciding with the first anniversary of the Dec/Jan uprising, officials and figures across the board in this regime are now expressing escalating concerns over a new and far more expansive uprising sweeping the country in 2019.
“It is very important to understand what is being planned for 2019. For us, it is important to know that another sedition is being blueprinted for 2019… The enemy intends to launch another such campaign in 2019, paving the path as we speak.”
