IRAN: Regime fails to get Qassem Soleimani up to attend a Student Day event

NCRI - Attempts by the antihuman Iranian regime to get Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the terrorist Quds Force, to symbolically participate in a ceremony at Iran National University [named Beheshti by the regime] to build up the morale of the revolutionary guards and the Basij forces proved in vain. Although he was injured 25 days, the extent of his wounds is such that he is still unable to even symbolically take part in any ceremony.

NCRI - Fearful of student protests, the Iranian regime has stationed suppressive forces on a massive scale in the streets and squares around Tehran and Sharif Industrial universities. The Basij forces and the anti-riot units of the State Security Forces (SSF) have set up checkpoints in Engelab Square and Azadi Street. Regime’s elements apprehensively inspect vehicles in this district and prevent traffic on foot to Azadi Street.

Iran: University students disrupt Rouhani’s speech, chant Free Political Prisoners

NCRI - Speech by Hassan Rouhani, the president of Iranian regime, was disrupted at Tehran’s Sharif University of Technology to such an extent that Rouhani was compelled to cut short his speech and make a quick exit.

This happened despite the fact that security elements and the branch of the intelligence ministry at the university, apprehensive of student protests, had barred entry of most students to the hall and had carefully selected people allowed to attend. As such, over 1500 seats were empty while students that had gathered outside the hall chanted, “political prisoner must be freed”.
