Locals say a long line of trucks are smuggling goods controlled by regime officials and the IRGC.
They're bypassing all regulations to pocket the maximum amount of profits.
All the while, over 80% of the population is living in poverty, according to DW Farsi. pic.twitter.com/7GJCy0qVtm
Due to the economic failure of the Iranian regime, its people have become increasingly poorer over the past 40 years.
About 12-15 million of the Iranian population face absolute poverty and the rest, relative poverty.
According to sources systematic mishandling of national resources, widespread corruption, allocation of billions of dollars for military conflicts abroad and low foreign investment due to the anti-Western policies of the regime, are among the reasons Iran has become increasingly poorer over the past four decades.
Worse still, according to some reports, between 11 million and 21 million people in Iran live in slums, deprived of minimum health and public services.
