(TargetLiberty.org) – Iranian citizens have continued protesting after their government admitted to shooting down a Ukrainian flight that killed 176 people, the majority of whom were from Iran. Videos released from the protests show live ammunition being used against the demonstrators. Yet, the Iranian government has denied these allegations.
These videos, which have been verified by the Associated Press, show bloody protestors being carried away. In one scene a person can be heard yelling “oh my god, she’s bleeding nonstop!”
President Trump warned Iranian leaders over the weekend via Twitter, reminding the country that it’s under close watch by America.
To the leaders of Iran – DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2020
Tehran Police Chief Hossein Rahimi issued a statement saying that the police have been treating the protestors with “patience and tolerance.”
