The Iranian Army has warned this Friday those who have taken to the streets in recent days after the death in police facilities of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old girl who was arrested for wearing the veil wrong, that they are prepared “to to face the conspiracies of the enemies”.

“We will not allow the enemies to abuse this situation. We strongly condemn any destruction of public property and disturbances on the security of the people and the country and attacks on security guards,” says the brief statement from the Army, which reports ISNA agency.

Along these lines, the Ministry of Information has stated that, due to the proliferation “of counterrevolutionary movements in recent incidents,” it has justified that “illegal meetings” will be persecuted.

These warnings come a day after the president of the Supreme Court of Iran, Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei, asked the security forces of the Persian nation to respond harshly to the protests that have been taking place since last weekend in various parts of the country.

Amini, from Iran’s Kurdish minority, was arrested on 13 September in Tehran for improper dress. She died three days after falling into a coma after fainting in a detention center, amid allegations of torture and ill-treatment. Police have denied the allegations and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has promised an investigation.

The death of Amini has triggered protests in the country that have resulted in at least 17 deaths, according to the Iranian television network Al Alam, although the non-governmental organization Iran Human Rights (IHR) has assured that at least 31 civilians have died because of the repression.
