3- Acc. to media, the poisoning cases in Brujerd took place in several female high schools, a female elementary school and (to the surprise of many!) a male high school. The number of poisoned girls in Brujerd is over 250.

Iranian diaspora opposition is furious with #Switzerland ambassador to #Iran.
Nadine Olivieri Lozano wore a chador (black veil covering head to toe) while visiting the Shrine of Sayyida Ma’asuma in #Qom. It’s a norm to wear a chador when visiting shrines in #Iran & #Iraq. ImageImageImageImage
Wearing a chador is exactly what the UN special Representative for Iraq does. Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert wears a black veil each time and every time she meets with Grand Ayatollah Sistani in Najaf or when she visited the Imam Hussein Shrine in Karbala. ImageImageImageImage
The Iranian opposition can’t tolerate seeing a women wearing chador inside a holy shrine, (as it is required) , I wonder how come they want to bring freedom to all women of Iran, religious or non-religious??

La scintilla della libertà in #Iran è diventata un incendio. Ora le fiamme hanno avvolto persino la casa natale di Ruhollah #Khomeini, il padre della Rivoluzione Islamica, l'emblema dell'incubo vissuto dagli iraniani dal 1979 ad oggi.

A dare notizia dell'accaduto sono i social e i media, tra cui Iran International. Il rogo sarebbe stato appiccato utilizzando delle bottiglie molotov: classica tecnica da guerriglia, utilizzata a più riprese in queste settimane contro le forze di sicurezza del regime.
I manifestanti hanno dato fuoco anche al seminario sciita di #Qom. Siamo dinanzi ad uno spettacolare salto di qualità della protesta, alla prova che chi scende in strada non combatte più per la libertà dei costumi, ma per abbattere il regime. A questo punto esistono due

A 🧵

1- For the first time in years, seminary scholars and students will hold a protesting gathering Sep 4 in the holy city of #Qom. It is against “the Islamic Republic Comprehensive Baking Plan”, the legislation that is currently under examination at the Iranian parliament. Image
2- The general outlines of #Iran’s new Banking Plan were passed at the Economic Committee of the Majlis. But it has become very controversial in recent months, given that former CBI’s governors, the CEOs of private and state-owned banks and even economic agents oppose it.
3- The Majlis and CBI argue the new banking plan is part of #Iran’s economic reforms and designed to ensure the independence of the CBI. Former officials say the drafted bill would tie the CBI’s monetary policies to the government’s economic decisions. Image

Look at these German diplomats in #Iran!They including #Germany ambssador Michael Klor-Berchtold paid a visit to most nororious Shiite clerics in #Qom & a bunch of Shrines. They pretended to be Shiite all to get support of Ayatollahs in-order to improve German-Iran economic ties!
They even have donated Qurans to most notorious human rights violators in the world! These German diplomats even have forced their wives to wear Islamic hijab like sex slaves during their visit from Qom!
Never forget that these German diplomats are descendants of Nazis. Their ancestors committed most grusome atrocities during WW2. Forget how much they pretend to be a friend to #Israel. They even are ready to help #Iran gain capability of building Nuclear weapon all for gas/oil.

Reports indicate Dr. Hassan Adeli, a senior respiratory diseases specialist in #Qom and head of city’s Council of Physicians has been forced to resign over his recent comments about the spread of #Coronavirus in #Iran.
Professor Adeli praised authorities in city of #Qom for announcing first confirmed cases of Covid19-related deaths in Qom. He said in the weeks leading to February 20, they related suspicious cases to #Coronavirus and told Health Ministry; but their warning wasn’t heeded.
Professor Adeli claimed apart from #Qom, #Coronavirus had spread in at least 15 other provinces (half of country) since early February: “Had they thought about spread of Coronavirus they’d reached the same conclusion we in Qom did, we insisted on testing; they didn’t”. #Iran

Before breaking the door, they could be seen in front of the main door of shrine protesting the Ministry of Health of #Iran's Islamic Regime over closure of the Masoumeh shrine. The #Iran's religious minority who mostly support the regime played key role in spreading #CoronaVirus
The religious extremists who are mostly #Basij militiamen can be seen singing religious song before breaking door of Masoumeh Shrine.At-least half of them are infected with #CoronaVirus/#COVID19 but none of them has face mask. They think if someone dies it is because of his sins!

We're seeing lots of reports regarding continued pilgrimage to #Qom, despite the #coronavirus outbreak there. It's horrible to watch Iran go through yet another crisis, but I also can't help but think about the historical parallels.
Pilgrimage & contagious diseases have history, and many of the 19th century sources I use in my research on these shrines mention disease, so here is a (brief) long view on pilgrimage in the time of #Corvid19
The most common disease in 19th-c. Iran was cholera, but there were also plague outbreaks, the worst being 1830-31. Of course, plague largely spread through movement of people, and pilgrims inadvertently took disease to the shrine cities, such as Qom and Mashhad, with them.

People in #BandarAbbas, south of #Iran were deceived by a #FakeNews about hospitalization of 10 #CoronaVirus/#COVID2019 cases in a health clinic in Towhid residential complex of their city. As its result they attacked the clinic & set it on fire to kill the patients!
People who burned this clinic had heard #FakeNews about transportation of 10 #CoronaVirus cases from #Qom to this clinic. But actually they had been transported from #Qeshm to #BandarAbbas. Two of them were originally from #Qom who had traveled to #Qeshm to meet their family!
No one was hurt during the fire in the clinic in #BandarAbbas. People had wished to burn 10 Shiite clerics alive who they were thinking had been transported from #Qom to that clinic. But it was actually a #FakeNews & No #CoronaVirus cases from #Qom had been diagnosed there!

The deaths of 50 people in #Qom due to #Coronavirus infection on February 24, reveal the clerical regime’s continued concealment which has led to rapid spread of #COVID19 infection. Once again, I would like to stress the need for WHO’s urgent intervention #Iran
Medical facilities widely monopolized by the ruling mullahs, the IRGC and the intelligence agencies, must be put at the disposal of people, hospitals and doctors. #COVID19 #Iran
The clerical regime is repeating the bitter experience of the Ukrainian Airliner. The catastrophe is spreading on a macro scale all across the country. Our compatriots must rise up and protest against the regime and compel it to tell the truth #COVID19 #Iran

President #Rouhani reportedly told Reformist figures at an Iftar party: The government has no authority in foreign politics, doesn’t know where/when it is allowed or not to negotiate; cultural policies, IRIB state TV, mosques & cyberspace aren’t under govt. control. #Iran #US
#Rouhani tells Reformists -who insist on possibility of negotiations- that he opposed talks (with #US) under current circumstances. #Iran’s president tries to shed responsibility for #JCPOA defeat of his govt. & himself by telling Reformists they want sth that’s not in his power.

In #Iran, thousands take to the streets for day two of anti-regime protests. Flashback to 2009 #IranProtests? So who is demonstrating now and why? I'll compare/contrast movements. Some thoughts & on-the-ground insights to follow:
The protests are largely targeting government economic policies, price surges on basic goods & the regime's economic & material support of Hezbollah & movements in Syria, Gaza, Yemen, etc. #Iranprotests #مظاهرات_ايران
But grievances have expanded, similar to the #GreenRevolution of 2009, which started out as a contested election but evolved into a movement against the entire regime..Now protesters' slogans are targeting President Rouhani & Supreme Leader #Khamenei #Iranprotests
