On Wednesday evening, two armed terrorists on a motorcycle attacked security forces in Isfahan and martyred three members of the security forces and injured another person.

These terrorist acts happened while anti-revolution media called for protests and riots in all cities of Iran and invited people to continue the riots. A number of rioters also attacked government and public centers and caused damage to these centers and people's property.

Even though the creation of chaos and terror is one of the strategies of the enemies, including the United States and the Israeli regime, in facing the Islamic Republic for many years, in recent weeks, the enemies have used all their political and media power to intensify protests, unrest and violence across Iran; The October 26 terrorist attack on the holy shrine of Shah Cheragh in Shiraz city of Fars province, which left 15 martyrs, was also carried out in line with the same goals of the enemies.

The unrest in some parts of the country is considered an opportunity for the enemies and terrorist groups affiliated with them to carry out terrorist operations and, as a result, intensify the chaos and insecurity in the country to use. Of course, during the past month, Iran's intelligence and security agencies have thwarted several planned terrorist operations and prevented unfortunate events in the country.

"Enemies and media terrorism try to carry out their actions using various methods and propaganda that are not conventional and clear, but when they are disappointed, they have no choice but to resort to terrorist acts."

The attacks came amid ongoing foreign-backed riots that have hit various Iranian provinces after a 22-year-old Kurdish woman named Mahsa Amini died in hospital despite intensive medical care and resuscitation efforts.
