As Iran marks the fourth anniversary of the nationwide protests of 2019, rebellious youth are targeting the regime’s centers of repression and terrorism across the country.
In Tehran, rebellious youth targeted the Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) Quds Garrison in Greater Tehran and the Quds Basij headquarters of the IRGC Tehran command. The bases were rocked with great explosions on Monday night.
The Quds Garrison is one of the four pillars of the IRGC in Greater Tehran, and its mission is to suppress protesters and rebellious youth. This camp was responsible for the suppression and arrest and torture of protesters in the 2017, 2019, and 2022 uprisings in northwestern Tehran. The Revolutionary Guards and agents of this camp first transferred the arrested protestors and rioters to the detention center and prison inside this camp and after torture and interrogation they sent them to other secret prisons of the IRGC. In the 2022 uprising, the Quds Garrison focused on universities and especially the students of Sharif University.
The Quds Basij area is located next to the Quds Garrison and is one of the 22 Basij commands of Greater Tehran. The Bassij command center controls suppressive operations in the region and has control over various suppressive patrol forces. Some of its missions includes creating public fear by controlling and patrolling public places, parks, squares, streets and alleys, and harassing women and girls under the pretext of violating the regime’s medieval dress code and hijab rules.
Also in Tehran, the rebellious youth targeted other Basij bases as well as a center of propaganda and fundamentalism. Across the city, the youth also torched propaganda posters of the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei to underline their hatred of the regime and their determination to overthrow the mullahs’ rule.
In Bushehr, southern Iran, the rebellious youth targeted a “Students Basij” base. The Students Basij is a subsidiary of the Basij that is focused on carrying out repressive measures in universities against students that oppose the regime and take part in anti-regime protests. The Students Basij was especially active during the 2022 uprising as universities were among the major hotbeds of anti-regime protests.
In Karaj, northern Iran, the rebellious youth targeted one of the “bonyads” (IRGC-run financial institutions) that has been actively involved in looting national assets and funding the regime’s repressive forces and policies.
In Mashhad, northeast Iran, and Isfahan, central Iran, the rebellious youth targeted several Basij bases, setting fire to entrance and main buildings. The protesters also targeted one of the centers of the regime’s repressive judiciary that is tasked with dolling out sentences for torturing prisoners and protesters.
In Qazvin, northern Iran, protesters targeted the main offices of the regime’s “Farhang va Ershad” organization, the main institute involved in enforcing the medieval fundamentalist rules such as forced hijab.
In Zahedan, southeast Iran, protesters targeted several Basij bases, including a Students Basij base.
In Hamedan, western Iran, the rebellious youth targeted several Basij bases.
On November 15, 2019, the sudden hike in the price of fuel triggered protests that quickly turned into a nationwide movement that spread across more than 190 cities, calling for the overthrow of the regime. The regime only managed to hold onto power through brutal suppression, gunning down 1,500 protesters in the streets and arresting tens of thousands.
