Tehran, Mar. 01 – Thousands of residents of Tehran clashed with security forces late on Tuesday in anti-government protests in various parts of the Iranian capital. Security forces used tear gas and batons to disperse the crowds.

At one of the demonstrations in Tehran’s north-western Sadeghieh district, some protesters burnt pictures of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who has frequently become the target of protestors’ anger in recent rallies.

There were clashes in central Tehran’s Vali Asr Square between security forces and protestors who chanted “Death to Khamenei”.

Security forces stationed at nearby Enghelab Square arrested several dozen protesters, an Iran Focus correspondent reported.

Eye-witnesses in the southern city of Shiraz reported protests and clashes, with several arrests.

There were also sporadic clashes between protesters and plainclothes agents in Kermanshah, the largest city in western Iran.

The protests Tuesday follow major anti-government rallies on 14 and 20 February despite the deployment of thousands of security forces, plainclothes officers and members of the paramilitary Bassij militia throughout the country.
