February 23, 2018

TEHRAN – A member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee has said a large number of firearms have been seized from the house of a team of cult rioters who sought to turn the unrest in northern Tehran into an armed conflict.

Abolfazl Hassan Beigi said the recent unrest in the Pasdaran neighborhood in northern Tehran was launched with the help of foreign spy agencies and members of the opposition bloc, Tasnim reported on Friday.

In recent days, protests by members of a Dervish cult in Pasdaran left five security forces killed. Hundreds have been arrested by security forces since the start of the unrest.
