Tehran, Iran, Sep. 10 – Some 200 special units of the State Security Forces (SSF) moved into different locations across the Iranian capital on Saturday as part of the new wave of crackdown of “social corruption”, the head of security patrols of Greater Tehran’s police force told reporters as the units were being dispatched.

“The judiciary and the State Security Forces are carrying out a plan for 20 days to wipe away trouble-makers and those who disturb the peace and today active operations by special groups in Greater Tehran have commenced all over the city”, Colonel Hassan Gholam Heydari said.

Heydari said that there were five garrisons taking part in this operation in the Iranian capital.

The SSF colonel in charge of the units said that in particular individuals seeking to “corrupt the minds of youths” would be dealt with. He did not elaborate.

Tehran’s police chief separately confirmed the new procedures during a meeting of senior SSF officials in Tehran.

Revolutionary Guards Brigadier General Morteza Tala’ie, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the meeting, confirmed that 200 units were being dispatched to checkpoints in the Iranian capital. He also said that a further 50 units were being dispatched to carry out the same drill at nights.

Tala’ie warned against the use of wedding carts in the streets of Tehran, which the police had declared to be banned.
