The terror attack at embassy of #Azerbaijan Republic (#Baku) in #Tehran, #Iran is most likely a false flag operation of Azerbaijani Intel service. Authorities of the Baku were fully prepared to release statements for this attack. Even Azerbajani media had received notice before!
This CCTV footage shows inside the #Baku embassy in #Tehran, #Iran, when the 50 year old attacker armed with an AK-47 Assault rifle entered and opened fire at people inside. Head of the security of #Azerbaijan embassy attempted to stop him & he was wounded.
With the heroic action of this man, head of security of the emnbassy of #Azerbaijan Republic (#Baku), the terrorist who is believed to be hired by Azerbaijani Intelligence failed to kill more people inside the embassy in #Tehran, #Iran.

Where is #Iran heading?🧵

1- After almost 4 months of protests, Iran can't afford a return to the way things were prior to the killing of #MahsaAmini. As i predicted in Oct Iran enters a period of hyper-uncertainty & instability; a period in which the regime won't be able to...
2- extinguish #IranRevoIution & Iranians cannot topple the regime in the immediate future. But, given the regime's use of extreme forms of repression (i.e. summary executions of teenagers) all bridges btw people & regime are burnt. Now, all bets are off!
3- Regardless of state narratives of victory over "rioters", neither side is winning or losing. For now, #Iran & #Khamenei's regime have fought themselves into a stalemate. The country is a powder keg ready to explode but we never know when the next volcano of protest will erupt.

Il giorno prima di essere giustiziato, #MajidrezaRahnavard ha potuto incontrare la propria madre.
Un gesto di clemenza da parte del regime? L'opposto. Stando ai dettagli emersi nelle ultime ore, sembra infatti che né il giovane manifestante né sua madre siano stati informati
dell'imminente esecuzione. Nessuno gli aveva detto che quello sarebbe stato il loro ultimo incontro.
L'esercizio del Male ha bisogno di una certa professionalità.
Il regime con questa mossa tiene in scacco migliaia di famiglie iraniane, quelle dei giovani reclusi nelle
prigioni di Stato.
Confinate in un clima di terrore perpetuo, invitate a tenere una "buona" condotta per evitare di incorrere nelle ire di chi può disporre della vita e della morte dei propri affetti, sono portate a mettere da parte le proteste. Per amore.
Ora la domanda che

The @nytimes and other Western outlets reported that #Iran has abolished its #morality_patrol, which enforces the mandatory hijab. But this is an overstatement. The regime has not made any such concession as #Iran_protests enter their twelfth straight week. (1/7)
This reporting is based on misinterpreted remarks from Iranian Prosecutor General #Montazeri on December 3. Montazeri noted that the regime has reduced morality patrols—comments mistakenly framed by Western media as confirming the abolition of the patrol. (2/7)
Iranian state media quickly clarified that Montazeri was only acknowledging the reduced morality patrols but not confirming their abolition. No other regime official has indicated the end of the patrol. (3/7)

Qualora fosse autentico il report pubblicato da #Iran International ci troveremmo dinanzi ad un fatto tanto nuovo quanto clamoroso: la presa d'atto del regime di #Tehran che le
proteste nel Paese costituiscono una minaccia senza precedenti per la Repubblica Islamica.
In un documento di 123 pagine attribuito alla Fars, l'agenzia dei pasdaran, redatto ad uso e consumo del comandante in capo delle Guardie Rivoluzionarie Hossein #Salami, è all'ayatollah
#Khamenei in persona che viene ascritta la seguente profezia: "I disordini non finiranno presto".
La Guida Suprema ne ha per tutti: ne ha per il presidente #Raisi, recentemente contestato in pubblico (fatto inaudito in Iran, come si nota dalla sua stessa sorpresa), ne ha per

Ayatollah Shabzendedar's narrative of his recent meeting with #Iran's leader: In a meeting, we had with the leader of the Islamic Rev. some friends expressed their concerns about the recent unrest. Ayat. #Khamenei responded, /1
That is not a serious issue. Since the beginning of the revolution, we have faced many problems of this kind. This is the war between Islam and Kufr. Enemies are upset, that is why they do what they do & they have some assistants inside the country too but we should not worry! /2
If we fulfill our divine duties, God shall help us. Ayat. Khamenei added, "Whoever can do anything to help Islam and the Islamic system but doesn't do so and remains silent, is doing a Haram act"

Chissà se in un futuro non troppo lontano il 40esimo giorno dall'uccisione di #MahsaAmini verrà ricordato come l'inizio della fine della Repubblica Islamica, quello in cui l'#Iran si è sollevato contro il regime, chiarendo una volta per tutte che non basteranno spari contro Image
i passanti, manganellate sulle donne, per sopprimere una protesta che non può neanche più essere definita "un'ondata". Siamo dinanzi ad una marea.
Queste sono le immagini del fiume umano di iraniani che nella giornata di ieri hanno deciso di onorare e la memoria di Mahsa.
Se solo sapesse cosa ha scatenato la sua morte, la giovane uccisa perché indossava male il velo non potrebbe essere più fiera delle sue sorelle.
Eccole qui, ieri sera, migliaia di ragazze dell'università di Isfahan, scandire "azadi, azadi, azadi!": libertà, libertà, libertà.
