The news that has been heavily reflected in the Iranian regime's media in the past few days indicates the identification and arrest of some youths as leaders of recent unrest and riots in various cities across the country.
For the past two days, and after the abrupt announcement of increasing gas prices hikes by the government, the Iranian people poured into the streets in more than 100 cities. However, while the protests began against the government’s approval for rising fuel prices, they immediately targeted the ruling system in its entirety. Notably, after the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei defended the rising of fuel prices, protests intensified.
