On June 23, municipal agents with the help of the police, demolished the homes of locals in Qaleh-ye Sadri, Qom, south of Tehran.

The demolitions were carried out with a warrant from the Prosecutor.

Iranian security forces attacked and beat locals who protested the demolitions.

Locals fought back, throwing rocks at security forces, and torching two municipality vehicles.

They also blocked the roads with burning tires.

Many security forces and riot police were dispatched to the neighborhood, attacking, and beating angry locals.

Tensions are very high in Iran, with protests quickly turning into anti-government clashes.

Unwarranted home demolitions are common in Iran.
