The Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hussein Salami

The Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said that Iran will take revenge on its martyrs of defending security from the United States and global arrogance.

Iran Press/Iran news: Major General Hussein Salami made the remarks on Sunday evening on the sidelines of visiting the family of one of Iran's security defender martyrs Morteza Ebrahimi in Shahryar county, southwestern Tehran, who became martyred in the recent riots in Iran, saying that the global arrogance has been the main puppeteer behind the recent riots in Iran.

IRGC top official added: "We will take revenge on the martyrs of defending security from the United States and global arrogance."

Referring to the innocence of Iran's defenders of security who have been martyred in a cold-blooded and shabby manner, Salami said that those who have been involved in these crimes shall not be safe and they will be under the close watch of Islamic Republic of Iran's intelligence apparatus.

The government decided on Friday, November 15, 2019, to cut gasoline subsidies to fund schemes for direct help to low-income and middle-income families.

On Saturday, November 16, President Hassan Rouhani, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raisi convened a session of the Supreme Council of Economic Coordination and agreed that all state bodies should fully cooperate to implement the decision. 

Following the decision, some cities in Iran witnessed largely peaceful protests, but there were instances of violent behavior by some rioters, such as destruction and burning of some public and private property.

However, the people all across Iran have been marching so far to voice their support of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution and disgust with recent rioters' actions.
