Nine executions on May 23
The mullahs’ regime in Iran has immediately relaunched its domestic crackdown machine after the election farce, especially through executions and torture in prisons across the country. Ten inmates in the prisons of Tabriz, Zahedan, Ardebil, Kermanshah and Isfahan, and Karaj Central Prison were hanged on May 22 and 23. Nine of these cases were carried out on May 23 alone.
Two days after the election façade, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani held a press conference once again proving his inability and lack of will to realize even the slightest change in this regime’s domestic and foreign policies.
Rouhani pledged the mullahs’ regime will continue their warmongering in the Middle East, adding they are on the ground in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, and fought against terrorism in the region.
“Iran has and will support these through its diplomats and military advisors,” he said.
It is heartening that the Trump Administration is considering officially designating the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a "Foreign Terrorist Organization" (FTO), writes US. Colonel Wes Martin who served as the first senior antiterrorism officer for all Coalition Forces in Iraq.
For several years, a faction of the IRGC, the Qods Force, has held the FTO title, Col. Martin wrote on Tuesday for Forbes.

Prison populace increased five times that of general population, according to prison chief
On May 19th a young prisoner by the name of Ali Shahsavari, held in a ward known as the “Correction Center” of Zabol Prison (southeast Iran), committed suicide protesting the Zabol public prosecutor refusing to provide him furlough at the end of his sentencing. Gholamreza Rezai, head of the prison security, ordered his hands and feet cuffed and transferred to the quarantine section. He was also ordered to be tortured in the office of the prison guards’ commander. A week earlier this prisoner had committed suicide after prison authorities refused to allow him to meet his family who had travelled from the city of Kerman to see him. He was saved by his friends.
Maryam Rajavi: The ultimate solution to the regional crisis lies in the overthrow of the Velayat-e Faqih regime in Iran
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, welcomed the positions adopted by the Arab Islamic American Summit vis-à-vis the Iranian regime's conduct, which has undermined peace and stability in the Middle East region and the world. She emphasized in particular the statement regarding the need to confront the clerical regime's export of terrorism and fundamentalism, its ballistic missile program, its interference in the internal affairs of other countries, as well as its destructive regional and international role. She described the stances as indispensable to ending terrorism, war, and bloodshed, and restoring peace and tranquility.
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, described the mullahs’ regime at the end of its sham presidential election, as a divided regime that has been gravely weakened by its internal power struggle. She added: Rouhani’s second term would only entail growing crisis and a more intense power struggle. Crisis has precipitated at the leadership level of the religious fascism and would continue until the downfall of the regime of the velayat-e faqih (absolute rule of clergy). The heightening power struggle is a reflection of the regime’s strategic failure in resolving the most pressing social problems and growing discontent.
