Deadly Street Protests In Iran Over Water Shortages And Economic Hardships Are Spreading

 

Business Insider: There's a water shortage in Iran as temperatures hit 120F. Security forces are firing on protesters to stop demonstrations. 

* Blazing heat and water shortages hit Iran in July, especially the province of Khuzestan. 

* The situation prompted protests from angry locals, which have been harshly suppressed. 

* Report say Iranian security forces used live ammunition and killed at least 8 people. 

Iranian security fired live rounds at protestors amid water shortages and soaring temperatures, a human rights group and media reports say. 

The protests began in the arid, oil-rich province of Khuzestan on July 15 amid weeks long water shortages, and have since spread to other regions. 

According to Weather.com, the temperature in Ahvaz, Khuzestan, was 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 Celsius) on Monday afternoon, with a predicted overnight temperature of 99F. 

The outlook is similar all week. A

mnesty International in a report Friday said that security forces had killed eight protestors, including a teenage boy, by deploying indiscriminate and deadly force. 

The clashes have continued since.

The water shortage hitting the ethnic SW of Iran is due in part to the Iranian government diverting water to ethnic Persian areas. The ethnic Arabs know this. More than merely being slighted, they are being greatly economically harmed. It will end in violence

If Biden, Biden trainer Klain and the other clowns want to make dealz with the Ayatollahs, thy will end up with the Azeris, Kurds, Arabs, Baluchis and many Persians all hating them.

USA has bigger problems.

Human Events Sr. Editor: “White House knew about the Tucker ‘confrontation’”…”entire set-up was planned out in advance, per WH official”

The man who accosted Tucker Carlson has an interesting background


"The Asia Foundation, though, isn't just any foundation. Officially, it's "a nonprofit international development organization committed to improving lives across a dynamic and developing Asia." In fact, it's the second iteration of an organization called "Committee for Free Asia" that the CIA founded in 1951."

"We cannot confirm that Mr. Bailey is tied to the CIA or the accuracy of the report about his ties to the Asia Foundation, but it sure does seem like an unusual coincidence."
