Anti-establishment protests are happening in Ahwaz. Protesters chanting “we have never seen this level of injustice, down with the dictator. We want our rights.” Heavily armed security forces attacked them after a few minutes.

Last DEC-JAN it was the Kurdish cities of Kermanshah, KhorramAbad, followed by Azari-Kurdish city of Hamedan and Ahwaz which shocked many. After aforementioned cities went on the streets the protests reached more than 98 cities in less than 11 days. 3/16

This statement is very important.PKK's Iranian branch is the most organised opposition group inside Iran followed by other Kurdish parties,Ahwazi Arabs(3 MOG),Balouchis(mostly underground but very organised called SAHAB).1/10
Azari people who are mainly organised by NGOs(based in uni&abroad)but they may find support in possible changes in Iran by Turkey and Azerbaijan.
The difference between these groups is that PKK's branch(PJAK)has a significant armed forces positioned inside&outside of Iran.2/10
PJAK's forces are positioned inside Iran as you can see in this img, and also have bases inside Iraqi Kurdistan used for training, media etc.
This statement doesn't belong to PJAK. It is the PKK who designs PJAK's strategy and in most cases its tactics. 3/10

Regime apologists in the West who claim to be journalists/experts claimed that the two terrorists who were arrested by Belgian police were MEK members but they never mentioned how Iran could publish their names before Belgian authorities giving any details of them. #Think
Iran has asked Germany to expel Iranian diplomat to Austria. Tehran has conducted many terrorist operations in Europe and mostly in Austria and Germany against Kurdish leaders. Austria did nothing against Iran and that's why Iran wants its diplomat to be expelled to Vienna.
