As Iran protests enter 5th day, new cities join uprising

Iran protests

An Iranian uprising, which entered its fifth day on Monday, has become all-encompassing as smaller cities across Iran’s provinces joined popular protests, Arabiya News reported.

The small cities, which were not listed by activists and protest organizers two days ago, included cities like Izeh, Chabahar, Khoy, Tuyserkan, Shahin Shahr, Aligudarz and others like them in various parts of Iran.

In the city of Aligudarz in the province of Lorestan, the people arrived hours before scheduled protests despite large number of forces loyal to the regime being deployed in these cities’ centers.

Tens of thousands of people have protested across the country since Thursday against the Islamic Republic's government and clerical elite.
