Iran blames Britain and USA for recent unrest

Iranian students protest at the University of Tehran during a demonstration driven by anger over economic problems in the capital Tehran

"Clues and intelligence evidence show that these events (unrest in Iran) have been orchestrated (by enemies), and a triple party has been involved in bringing it about", Ayatollah Khamenei said in a gathering of people of Qom, held in Tehran on Tuesday.

He accused the USA and "the Zionists" of spending months preparing demonstrations in small towns in the hope that they would spread to the capital. Iran's judiciary has said the ringleaders could face the death penalty.

At least 20 people, including civilians and policemen, were killed and dozens of others were injured during violent clashes between the protesters and security forces, according to unofficial reports.

"I warn the president and security and judiciary officials to prevent the occurrence of a second Kahrizak", Mahmoud Sadeghi, a parliamentarian, tweeted on Monday.

The plot for the recent unrests in Iran had been developed by the United States and Israel who had been working on their scheme for months, Khamenei said. In particular he blamed Donald Trump: "This person who is the leader in America does not appear to be a stable person".

He also threatened revenge for demonstrations that've hurt Iran's establishment.

"In Iran too, we have eyes and ears", Yossi Cohen told a Finance Ministry conference in Jerusalem.

Mr Khamenei has described the protests, which were initially about the economy but soon turned political, as "playing with fireworks" but he said citizens had a right to air legitimate concerns, a rare concession by a leader who usually voices clear support for security crackdowns.

Nebenzia had also ferociously criticised the move by the United States to convene a UN Security Council meeting over the unending violent protests in Iran. "All of us must follow up", Khamenei said.
