Around noon time last Monday where a group of people had gathered in the town of Ekbatan to protest the water cutoff, the state security forces arrived to disperse the crowd and prevent the gathering from taking momentum. This provoked youth in that gathering, who had prevented the government officials from leaving without doing something to start the flow of water, to stand their ground and attack the suppressive security forces and giving them a lesson not to be forgotten.
The commanding officer of the state suppressive forces who saw the angry crowd charging in, ordered his forces to retreat and back off leaving the area before the incident turn in to bigger and wider all out protest.
