#BREAKING #Iran's regime announces launching of missile attack into #Syria, claiming to target "militants" behind the Sep 22 attacks in #Ahvaz. bbc.com/news/world-mid…2) Interesting how #Iran's state-run IRNA news agency is already reporting the attacks "killed and wounded" what it described as "militants."
Tehran is in desperate need to stage a show of force.

The U.S. stands with the Iranian people.
We call on all nations to support the Iranian people by not investing in Iran that supports the regime. #BREAKING

The so-called moderates represent a regime that continues to repress Iranians on a daily basis.
Iran's regime must stop persecuting civil society.

Despite the fact that 80% of #Iran's population lives in poverty, the state-controlled price of poultry is increasing today by 25%!
1 kg of poultry = 109,000 rials

U.S. dollar reached 170,000 rials on Tuesday #BREAKING - #Iran

U.S. dollar selling at 185,000 rials.
An average worker receives 15-20 million per month.
This equals to less than $110.
