Following the admittance of the Iranian government that it shot down the Ukranian plane which crashed, killing 176 people on Wednesday, Iranians have called for the immediate resignation of their Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khramenei
There is a lot of anger in Tehran as citizens demand justice and accountability
“Commander-in-chief [Khamenei] resign, resign,” videos posted on Twitter showed hundreds of people chanting in front of Tehran’s AmirKabir University.
The protesters questioned why the plane was allowed to take off since there was so much tension in the country.
days after the crash happened, Iran had denied knowing the reason behind the crash.
We understand that many people including families of the victims are in shock and do not understand why their government would have lied to them for this long.
Iran’s leadership last faced mass protests in November following the rise in petrol prices.
