  • Syrian PM Praises Iran for Foiling US-Israeli-Saudi Plot

Iran's supreme leader said on Tuesday that Iran had foiled attempts by the USA and Britain to create unrest during a wave of protests, according to state media.

"Once again, the nation tells the US, Britain, and those who seek to overthrow the Islamic Republic of Iran from overseas that 'you've failed, and you will fail in the future, too.'" Khamenei tweeted.

Late in December 2017, peaceful protests over rising prices and economic problems broke out in some Iranian cities, but the unauthorized gatherings turned violent after a number of opportunists, some of them armed, vandalized public property and launched attacks on police stations and government buildings.

Nebenzia had also ferociously criticised the move by the U.S. to convene a UN Security Council meeting over the unending violent protests in Iran.

"We will not remain silent as the Iranian dictatorship represses the basic rights of its citizens and will hold Iran's leaders accountable for any violations", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. The Revolution politically eradicated the enemy from Iran.

"The rulers in the United States know that they didn't achieve their goal: they might try to repeat it, but they know that can never achieve it", stated Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran.

The White House also called for an immediate release of all political prisoners in Iran as civil unrest in the country continues.

"They damaged us during these days, they know there will be some sort of retaliation", he said, the Times reported.
