Reported by PMOI/MEK
Iran, March 19, 2019 - Reports from a variety of cities throughout Iran indicate members of “Resistance Units,” a network associated to the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), are responding to a statement issued by this organization to increase anti-regime protests throughout the country.
Members of Resistance Unit 896 in Tehran, the country’s capital, set fire to images of regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, while chanting “Death to Khamenei – We answer fire with fire – Hail to Rajavi,” in reference to Iranian Resistance leader Massoud Rajavi and opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
