London, Sep. 28 – Agents of Iran’s State Security Forces went up rooftops in western Tehran removing satellite dishes which are banned in Islamic Iran, local residents reported.

“At around 10 am on Tuesday, uniformed agents began climbing rooftops and they started to remove satellite dishes”, a resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, said by telephone.

Dozens of dishes were brought down and confiscated by security agents in the police operation which occurred in Tehran’s Kaj District (formerly Peykan-Shahr).

The Islamic Republic banned satellite dishes in 1995. The crackdown on satellite dishes was prompted by broadcasts from Iranian opposition groups whose television programs reportedly have a large audience in Iran.
