Qom (IP) - A number of the ringleaders in Iran's recent unrest active in the virtual space, were identified and arrested in Qom, south of Tehran, by the Islamic revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Intelligence Organization.

Iran PressIran News: In a statement on Thursday, IRGC Public Relations announced that the elements detained had extensive participation in calling for riots, encouraging graffiti writing, distributing pamphlets, insulting the clergymen, and other actions that disturb public security.

The unrest that broke out in Iran recently, under the pretext of a 22-year-old girl Mahas Amini, caused the enemies of the Islamic Republic to use the opportunity to interfere with the domestic affairs of Iran and fuel the recent riots.

Those who led the unrest brought the riots to the extent that encouraged the rioters to kill people and then attributed it to the security forces who were standing against them to save the country.
