Protesters set fires in the street in Tehran – as women in Turkey cut off their hair in protest

Protesters destroyed Iranian police vehicles and sent morality offerings onto the streets as the fifth night of protests rocked the country in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Dozens of Iranian cities have been locked in the clutches of deadly riots as women tore off their hijabs and took to the streets, burning clothes as they marched for their right to be seen publicly without veils.

Women in Turkey demonstrated outside the Iranian Embassy by cutting their hair and holding it above the roaring crowds.

Kurdish and Lebanese women took part in a rally in the downtown district of the capital Beirut, while Iranians in New York gathered outside a United Nations conference to protest the arrival of Iranian extremist President Ebrahim Raisi .

Protests led by women have rocked the country since the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurd who died after being arrested by vice squad for not wearing her hijab “correctly”.

An elderly lady took off her veil to expose her gray hair and walked through the town of Rasht with her head uncovered, chanting “death to [supreme leader] Khamenei’ – risking life imprisonment for his defiance.

Flashing red and blue lights faded back into the shadows as protesters advanced, with crowds in the hundreds crushing regime forces. Elsewhere, police fled on top of motorbikes as a wave of protesters charged.

President Raisi promised an investigation after initially denying the charges, but he did little to quell the protests.

Tehran vice police chief Ahmed Mirzaei was reportedly suspended after the young woman’s death, according to The Times of Israel.

Two people died in the western Iranian city of Kermanshah on Tuesday, the city’s prosecutor was quoted by the semi-official Fars news agency as saying on Wednesday.

The prosecutor added that 25 people, including protesters, security forces and bystanders, were injured during the demonstrations.

Iranian Telecommunications Minister Issa Zarepour warned against internet restrictions on Wednesday, citing “security concerns these days”.

A social media user using the handle “erfan_kasrale” tagged Musk in a tweet on Monday, saying, “I’m sure you won’t answer this Mr. Musk, but is it technically possible to provide Starlink to the people of Iran?” This could be a game changer for the future.

And Musk tweeted a response on Tuesday, September 20, saying, “Starlink will seek an exemption from Iranian sanctions in this regard.”

The protests are among the most serious in Iran since the November 2019 unrest over rising fuel prices.

It came as the United States and Iran opposed the return of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, with the US president vowing Tehran would never get an atomic bomb.
