Iran, February 13, 2020—Iran’s rebellious youth in Tehran set fire to the entrance of the regime’s public court in district 10, located in Jeyhun street. A large explosion rocked the building at night on February 8. The regime’s judiciary is much hated across Iran, especially as it continues to hold and torture thousands of protesters who were arrested in the November protests. The head of the judiciary, Ebrahmi Raisi, has a notorious background in killing opposition members and played a pivotal role in the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners during the 1988 massacre.
The attack comes on the heel of similar attacks in other parts of Tehran and other major cities of Iran. A few days earlier, the rebellious youth of Mashhad attacked the office of Ahmad Alamalhoda, the representative of regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei. Alamolhoda is, in fact, the most powerful and notorious man in the regime’s hierarchy in Mashhad. He is responsible for the suppression of people in Mashhad and the murder of many protesters in the city during uprisings.
On January 29, the rebellious youth targeted the “Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order” office (EIKO) in Tehran. EIKO is known for plundering the Iranian people’s money for the regime’s domestic crackdown machine and widespread support of terrorism abroad.
Meanwhile, the Iranian Resistance Units, a network of activists and supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), engaged in various activities to commemorate the anniversary of the murder of senior MEK officials Mousa Khiabani and Ashraf Rajavi and a dozen MEK members in February 1982. Khiabani and Rajavi were longstanding members of the MEK and political prisoners during the reign of the Shah dictatorship. In 1980, Khiabani had forewarned about the Iranian regime’s state-sponsored terrorism.
Thirty-eight years later, the Resistance Units have proven that MEK martyrs are not forgotten and the Iranian people continue to honor their memory. In Karaj, the Resistance Units installed a banner that read: “We will uphold our commitment to the memory of Ashraf and Mousa until freedom is achieved.”
In Tehran, Resistance Units installed a poster of Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), that read: “The sacrifice made by honorable martyrs like Ashraf Rajavi and Mousa Khiabani fills the hearts with honor.”
In Tehran’s Northern Highway, a banner read: “The martyrdom of Ashraf and Mousa calls on rebellious youths for an uprising.”
In Semnan, a poster of Maryam Rajavi read, “Hail to Ashraf and Mousa & their comrades until the day that the fight for freedom is alive.” Similar posters were installed in Tabriz, Rasht, and Qazvin.
In Borazjan, the Resistance Units installed posters of the martyrs of February 8, 1982, on walls and placed flowers next to them to honor the memory of the martyrs.
In Birjand, supporters of the MEK held handwritten messages that honored Mousa and Ashraf and promised to continue their path and support the Resistance Units.
An MEK supporter in Tehran sent a recorded message, in which he honored the sacrifice made by MEK members in February 1982. “We promise to continue their path to the last breath and drop of blood,” he said.
In Tehran, Resistance Units installed a large banner of Ashraf and Mousa on a pedestrian bridge in the Niyayesh Highway. The banner read: “We continue the path of Ashraf and Mousa. We have come down a glorious path and we have an even more glorious future.”
In Semnan, a group of Resistance Unit members gathered and held pictures of Ashraf and Mousa in front of their faces while chanting, “The blood of Mousa is still alive, and the resistance units continue their path.”
Similar ceremonies were held by Resistance Units in Isfahan, Mashhad, and Qazvin.
Resistance Units in Karaj, Isfahan, Mahshahr, and Tehran installed posters of Mousa and Ashraf and the leadership of the Iranian resistance with slogans that expressed their commitments to continue the path of MEK martyrs.
In Qazvin, Resistance Units commemorated Ashraf and Mousa by placing flowers on the graves of MEK martyrs.
