After a stern warning from the Revolutionary Guards, demonstrators took to the streets of Tehran once again on Monday.
The Revolutionary Guards released a statement saying that if the demonstrations continue, “be prepared for a resolution and revolutionary confrontation with the Guards, Basij and other security forces and disciplinary forces”. The Islamic regime vowed to confront the peaceful demonstrations with force.
“The guardians of the Islamic revolution and the courageous Basiji together with the security forces following the orders of the supreme leader and following him unquestioningly, are determined to act strongly to return peace and tranquility to society … and to clean the country of these plotters and hooligans.”
Mousavi also released a statement on his website Sunday evening.
