The Iranian government opened fire with live ammunition against demonstrators who were protesting the Islamic regime for shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane last week and lying about it for days.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which is a designated terrorist organization, shot down the plane late on Tuesday night after firing numerous missiles at U.S. forces in Iraq.

“For the first three days after the crash, Iran denied growing international accusations that it had shot the plane down, and looked as if it was engaged in a cover-up,” The New York Times reported. “The Iranian authorities insisted that the jetliner had gone down for mechanical reasons, and refused to cooperate with investigators. They also began to remove some evidence from the scene.”

Massive protests erupted across Iran over the weekend in at least a dozen cities and Iran responded by firing “tear gas, rubber bullets and eventually live ammunition to disperse demonstrators.” The Times later noted that multiple people had been shot and that other protesters were beaten.

President Donald Trump warned Iran about attacking protesters on Sunday, tweeting, “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!”

“To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage,” Trump wrote on Saturday, adding, “The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people. There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.”

“Unlike previous waves of opposition, some of the outrage this time has come from conservatives who ordinarily support the government, as well as from the usual critics,” the Times added. “Headlines in hard-line newspaper demanded resignations, and the commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guards, Gen. Hossein Salami, issued a very rare public apology. … The editor in chief of the Revolutionary Guard’s Tasnim news agency, Kian Abdollahi, said that attempts by government officials to lie about what had happened were as great a ‘catastrophe’ as the crash itself.”

The Times noted that protesters chanted, “The supreme leader is a murderer; his regime is obsolete,” “Our enemy is right here, they lie to us that it’s America,” and “They killed our geniuses and replaced them with clerics.”

Other videos from protests in Iran showed protesters refusing to walk on flags of the United States and Israel that were painted on the ground.

BBC reporter Ali Hamedani tweeted a video that showed student protesters refusing to walk on a giant American and Israeli flag that was painted on the ground, writing, “At the height of the Iranian establishment anti Americanism, Tehran Beheshti university’s students refused walking over the US and Israel flag while participating in #IranProtests. They all grew up to hate the two countries but seems like the revolutionary ideology is failed.”

WATCH:

Masih Alinejad, an Iranian journalist, tweeted: “Watch how Iranian students refuse to step on American & the flag of Israel. This should embarrassed Iranian regime & their propaganda funeral for #Soleimani where people were told to chant ‘Death To America.’ Now people in Iran chanting ‘Death to Islamic Republic dictatorship.’”

On Saturday, protesters chanted “death to liars,” “death to the dictator,” “So many years, so many crimes, death to the Islamic Republic,” and “Soleimani was a murderer, his Leader is also a murderer.”

    The first video has no indication the woman was shot. No blood, no panicked crowd running. Looked more like she had a fat attack.

    The Dems brainwash this millennial generation into socialism, into thinking they’re going to be completely taken care of by the gov if they vote for them but this is the reality of what will happen to America if they get in power.

    Iranians listen to your relatives here in the US and we know that you all want FREEDOM not controlled by these leaders who want terrorism. We can use your education and you are held back. They say it is because we took away your money no to stop what this General who was killed went around the world to kill like Syria and ASSAD killed over 500,000 with his help. WHY? Who are these leaders who try to take away your rights? If you only had the guns to fight back or get your military to step down and say no more? Why we go over to Afganistan, to Iraq and our men and women die to try to give you what we have here even with the stupidity of our Present Democratic Congress. They want the power for who backs them. We know this and this is why Pres Trump was elected he brought back our jobs many not all went over to China WHY? Made big money for the top rich and he is rich but he knows also that people lost good jobs? Check out our coal miners who went back. Many want to take their jobs per th e environment. But coal can be clean. So do not listen to the only biased media you are allowed. We nor the President wants to kill citizens. or he would have hit back per the missiles Iran is sending where our military is located. They do not care and they do not care about you but to use you for their own power. If they fall you will have freedom to leave and the money will flow back from all over. Check our history we may go and fight but we leave we do not take your country. I know of a super young man from Ala. who died in Iraq never to see his son. WHY to help others . ASK all of you who have family here and see what they cannot say to the media we know they want and need freedom NOW? If they are seen here then your Govt may kill or imprison you. I know of a family here afraid to go over and visit anymore? Much of our own liberal media that tries to make it like that Pres Trump took away the money and should not have per Nuclear this is not why? Stop the use for terrorism. Democrats will now say and do anything to win and they lied on Russia and now on the Ukraine. So beware of what you read and where it comes from like New York Times, Washington Post, and many others. Why we are on the internet to try to tell the truth and the real story. See now Hong Kong they are fighting to keep free from China and they were suppose to stay Free.
