Most of the videos shows a few protesters throwing fireworks at a security motorcycle patrolling the Falah neighborhood in Tehran, while chanting ‘death to the dictator’.

Several Iranian officials had warned that festival celebrations may turn into demonstrations where the public prosecutor’s office released a statement warning against any ‘unruly, illegal behavior’.
