There are rumors arriving from Iran about the hospitalization of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. From the few information that it is possible to have now, if they are real, Khamenei was admitted in an hospital of the capital Tehran, in the intensive care department.

Today Mehr News, very close to the Iranian IRGC, published a very interesting article, in which it reveals the regime’s conspiracy theory, used to delegitimize the recent popular protests. According to this article, behind the protests there is the Israeli secret service Mossad. In the last two years, writes the author, the Mossad was in contact with an Iranian man called “Amir”, who was living in the Iraqi Kurdistan. The Iranian intelligence discovered the contact and arrested Amir. But, instead of publishing the news, the Iranian intelligence preferred to “replace the Mossad’s contact, giving to the Israeli secrete service another “Amir”. The article writes that Mossad did not realize the trap, and continued to communicate with this double agent. The article also says that there as an intermediary person between the Mossad and Amir, who was a Turkish journalist. This person was discovered by the Turkish intelligence three months ago and arrested (the person confessed his relations with Mossad). The goal of this cell was to plan disturbances in Iran and to provide information.
For the Iranian press agency, this story demonstrates that the Iranian protests were all organized from outside and that they tried to “activate sedition and chaos” in the country. The article also reports that, in order to manage the demonstration inside Iran, Israel and Saudi Arabia have formed an “operating room” in the Iraqi city of Ardabil, while United States have formed two operating rooms, one in Herat and another in Erbil.
Despite the announcement of Ali Jafari, head of IRGC, who said that the “sedition was finished”, videos from Iran showed hundreds of people protesting against the regime in Isfahan. Another time, the protest was not only for the economic crisis, but also for the regime’s political position: as it is possible to see in the video, the demonstrators chanted the slogan “No Gaza, No Lebanon, my life for Iran”.
