MEK Iran: People Left Without Water
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that the people living in different cities of Khuzestan for the sixth consecutive night continued to demonstrate against shortages of water.
Sixth consecutive night of protests
On Thursday evening, people living in different cities and regions of Khuzestan Province (southwest Iran), including Ahvaz, Khorramshahr, Bostan, Hamidiyeh, Shadegan, Susangerd, and Mahshahr, took to the streets to protest the lack of water.
MEK supporters from the city of Ahvaz reported that the people of Ahvaz in Lashgar-abad and Seyyed Karim, Darkhovin, Kut-Sheikh, Al-Jadideh, Kouy-e Molavi, and Kouy-e Feisalieh in Khorramshahr, and Susangerd poured into the streets despite widespread arrests and crackdown.
In different parts of Ahvaz was the scene of hit-and-run between the young people and the repressive forces.
Young people blocked both sides of Maroun Bridge
MEK supporters from the city of Susangerd reported that the young people were chanting in Arabic, “We know you will confront us with bullets and guns. But dying and becoming martyrs in the path to freedom is our dream.” In Behbahan, young people blocked both sides of Maroun Bridge.
Protesters chanting, “Death of the dictator, death of Khamenei.”
MEK supporters from the city of Izeh reported that on Tuesday, July 20, thousands of residents protested against lack of water, chanting, “Death of the dictator, death of Khamenei.” The State Security Force (SSF) arrested a number of the protesters, which further enraged the citizens.
Protesters chanted “Arabs and Bakhtiari’s, unite, unite”
Protesters chanted “Arabs and Bakhtiari’s, unite, unite” (referring to the two main ethnicities of Arabs and Bakhtiaries in the region), and “Tanks and guns are no longer effective,” and Khamenei, must be killed.”
The SSF and special units fired tear gas, pepper spray, and live ammunition at demonstrators in a bid to disperse them. But the youth responded by throwing rocks while chanting, “Have no fear, we are all together.” Several youths were killed or wounded when the SSF opened fire.
In Tehran and Karaj chanted “death to the dictator
MEK supporters from the city of Tehran and Karaj reported that a large group of people, led by courageous women and girls in Tehran’s Sadeqiyeh underground station, chanted “death to the dictator,” and “down with the principle of the velayat-e faqih (absolute clerical rule)” to express their rage and revulsion toward the regime.
The internet has been cut off
The mullahs’ regime as usual cut off the internet in Izeh, Ahvaz, Shushtar, Susangerd, and Mahshahr to prevent the spread of the protests and censor the news. Reports indicate that dozens of young people in Ramshir and surrounding villages have been arrested.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi message
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the young people in Izeh, who are confronting the IRGC on the sixth night of the uprising in Khuzestan Province. She also hailed the people of Tehran, who chanted death to the principle of the velayat-e faqih. The people are rising to support Khuzestan nationwide, Mrs. Rajavi added.
