Protests erupted in the city of Saravan, southeast Iran, when the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) opened fire on a group of deprived Baluchi fuel porters, killing and wounding dozens. People in different parts of Sistan and Baluchistan staged protests and strikes, in some cities attacking IRGC bases.
These protests indicate the Iranian society’s restiveness. The Iranian regime has been killing deprived fuel porters in Sistan and Baluchistan, under the pretext of fighting smuggling. Yet, the IRGC controls Iran’s smuggling network.
