Iran, January 27, 2020—The Iranian regime, with its all factions, is attempting to depict the eliminated Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force chief Qasem Soleimani as a hero of the Iranian people. The regime resorts to such measures to fuel its propaganda machine in the West on the one hand and to boost its terrified and low morale forces on the other.
However, the Iranian people know their enemy very well as they immediately demonstrated their hatred of the entire regime in the recent protests in Iran, chanting slogans against the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei and Soleimani. “Soleimani was a murderer and his leader [Khamenei] is a murderer,” they chanted and, “Our enemy is right here, [the regime] is lying that it’s the US.”

On Saturday, January 25, People's Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) Resistance Units set fire to a large banner of the terrorist Qasem Soleimani in Tehran. The banner was in Niayesh highway in the northern part of the Iranian capital. Resistance Units carried out this action during the evening rush hour. They also stayed in the location and filmed their act.
The regime had to send firefighters to put out the fire. Extinguishing the fire resulted in traffic on the highway and provided an opportunity for many to witness the burning banner.
On the same day, other Resistance Units torched two more banners of Qasem Soleimani in Tehran.

Other MEK units in the cities of Tabriz, Ardabil, Iranshahr, Sabzevar, and Khoy also torched propaganda banners of Qasem Soleimani to demonstrate the Iranian people’s hatred of this figure and will for the regime change in Iran.

It is worth mentioning that PMOI/MEK Resistance Units activities have become examples for rebellious youth in Iran as they torch or destroy banners of Khamenei and Qasem Soleimani in various protests throughout the country.
More acts were carried out by the PMOI/MEK network inside Iran on January 23. PMOI/MEK units in the cities of Tehran, Tabriz, Isfahan, Amol, Karaj, and Semnan set ablaze to banners and posters of Soleimani. Resistance Units in Kerman, Soleimani’s birthplace, torched his banner. Kerman was one of the cities that the regime spent over $600,000 for the funeral ceremony of terrorist Qasem Soleimani for its propaganda purposes.

Resistance Units also targeted an IRGC Basij base and set its sign on fire. They also torched a Soleimani banner on top of the entrance. Resistance Units also torched an entrance of the regime’s “cultural” foundation related to the Intelligence Ministry. They also destroyed and set ablaze numerous Khamenei banners and posters, including a large banner on a pedestrian bridge in Tehran.
A member of a Resistance Unit recorded his voice while he was burning a poster of Khamenei and the regime’s founder Ruhollah Khomeini. “You bloodthirsty mullahs! Wait for the day in which the PMOI/MEK topple your rule and the Iranian people get rid of bloodthirsty mullahs like you and your regime’s authorities.”

Parallel to their rejection of the clerical dictatorship, PMOI/MEK Resistance Units, and rebellious youth are installing banners of Iranian Resistance leader Massoud Rajavi in various cities. They also took to graffiti and wrote:
“The world must know that Massoud Rajavi is our leader.”
“We will take back Iran from the mullahs.”
“Massoud Rajavi: Iranian people will write Iran’s destiny through their efforts.”
It is worth noting that any support for the PMOI inside Iran is considered punishable by death by the mullahs’ judiciary. Back in June 2014, Gholamreza Khosravi, an MEK supporter, was arrested and executed merely for sending a small financial donation to a satellite TV network affiliated to the Iranian Resistance. “Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani was arrested in 2008 in Rafsanjan, Kerman Province, in connection with his alleged support of the pro-PMOI (People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran) TV station Sima-ye Azadi (Voice of Freedom),” according to Amnesty International.
