Iran Official: People Protests Spread to 160 Cities

Published by on January 22, 2019

A senior Iranian regime’s official said that people protested in 160 cities across the country during the anti-regime uprising of December 2017, something that contradicts the official Regime position that the protests were small, localized, and easily suppressed.

These figures by Ali Rabie, a Deputy Intelligence Minister of the Iran, even exceed the estimations of the human rights news agencies in Iran who reported that 142 cities across all Iranian provinces took part in the uprising.

Iran dismissed this as an exaggeration at the time, despite the fact that human rights supporters and also Iran National Television (INTV) reporters were present in all 142 cities watching the protests unfold.
