Rouhani brazenly lied again
Rouhani brazenly claimed, today: “While in modern and advanced European countries people were in line for food, hygiene, and the stores were empty from 10 am; even for medicine, treatment, and hospital beds, (they had to wait in line), these did not happen in our country. The shops were not looted. Long queues did not form, and people did not have to wait for hospitals to admit them and did not sleep on the grass in the hospital yard.” While doctors, specialists, and nurses are crying out over major shortages.
Maryam Rajavi message
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI): The astounding and horrific COVID19 fatalities are the result of the criminal and plundering policies of the regime in Iran; Khamenei and Rouhani bear direct responsibility. By banning the import of the vaccine, they are creating a bigger disaster.
