Tehran, Iran, Dec. 07 – Dozens of people have been arrested in the central province of Isfahan for “disturbing the peace” and “causing trouble”, Iran’s state-run press reported on Wednesday.

46 individuals were arrested as part of the “Plan to Combat Trouble-makers”, code-named “Zafar”, meaning “Victory”.

The “Plan to Combat Trouble-makers” was initially launched in Tehran in September and soon spread to cities and towns across the nation. Under the scheme, thousands were arrested within a period of several months on various charges such as “racketeering” and “loansharking”.

Iranian officials often refer to millions of unemployed young men, who are largely beset by frustration and despair, as “trouble-makers”.
