Hours ago, on the streets leading to the Dhi Qar Technical School, heavy clashes broke out between militias under the control of the Revolutionary Guards and protesters, who used tear gas and tear gas bombs.
Several Iraqi street protesters told Reuters today that security forces had seen Iranian forces suppress them in the midst of clashes.
Al-Hadith reporter also reported from Karbala last Saturday that he had “personally” seen at least two Iranian agents speaking Farsi together.
Protesting youths in different cities have come to the streets without a coherent leadership so far resulting in injuries and death One of the reasons that the security forces are treating the demonstrators so strongly is that they think that if the country is handed over to the demonstrators, similar situations like Syria or Libya will prevail in the country, and some politicians have even said that they will not resign until a successor is announced because they think their resignation will not be any better and will bring disorder and anarchy.
What should the demonstrators do?
Security forces, many of whom are also affiliated with Iran, appear to be reluctant to hand over power to young people who think they can move the country toward democracy by collective rationality. Some security forces also say that if the demonstrators had a coherent plan and leadership, they might have been joined by political leadership, but they fear that they will be the first victims of the revolution after suppression by security forces.
