Thousands of students from different age groups have confirmed they are striking and joining the protests in Baghdad.

Question to the @conspiracy theorists does Saudi Arabian intelligence control schools as well? :hahaha: let go of your laughable garbage theories. People are starving and their living conditions are trash, they want nothing to do with the political parties nor their politicians.

Karbala Friday prayer leader calls on protesters to avoid vandalism, violence

Karbala Friday prayer leader calls on protesters to avoid vandalism, violence

 

Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’I called on protesters and security forces to keep anti-government ‎demonstrations peaceful.‎

The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani in Karbala said that security forces ‎must not allow attacks on public and private property, must ensure the safety of the rallies, ‎and stay away from violence.‎

He also urged the demonstrators to avoid vandalizing the public properties, describing any ‎act of vandalism as “illegal and illegitimate.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’I said that protesters should be aware of infiltration of suspicious ‎elements, trying to exploit the rightful demands of protesters.‎

He also said that true reform is only possible through unity and cooperation.‎

To anyone in denial of Iranian personnel operating inside Iraq: as described by the person filming- a large convoy of Iranian buses and cars (apparently revolutionary guards) driving through Diwaniya in southern Iraq, driving on the wrong side of the road, knocking over something off the central reservation (كبوس) , carried on driving. 

They seem to have just crossed over from Iran.

 

Are you sure that they are Iranian cars? I have no idea whether Iran plays a role in this unrest but Iranian police cars are green and white or black while the cars we see in the video seem to be red and white.

Every single jeep was a law enforcement jeep and every single bus had the law enforcement flasher ontop. The bus with the side lights also had two top flashers (front and back) that were flashing alongside the side lights flashing. These are not normal running lights as you suggest, these blue lights are exclusive to law enforcement. 

Perhaps Iranian contributors can confirm or deny that these vehicles are in fact law enforcement. Maybe they can also tell us what the writing says on the side of the buses.

Also,

Here's an older video also taken in the south of Iraq in Wasit of an Iranian police car, when quizzed, they confirmed that were Iranian police and when asked on the premise of them being in Iraqi jurisdiction, they drove off.

 

One can easily deny unsubstantiated reports, but when you are presented with such clear examples, it's hard to deny. And I'm afraid, jumping to ridicule the evidence and to compare it to the white helmets who were staging their videos, only puts you in a position of being ridiculed yourself and proves lack of understanding of the situation on the ground. 

They are traffic police (not the ones who arrest the criminals) because their cars are blue and white.

The first video: they don't look like regular police cars, the jeeps and buses seem like they would be revolutionary guard vehicles.

The second video: it could well be a traffic police car. It's still outside of Iranian jurisdiction which was the point.

l believe l have read some news from it only a couple of times. The purpose for which l posted it is to show what the lraqi gov't is saying so it can be compared to what the int'l news agencies are reporting. "The situation in Karbala is very good" said the area commander does not square with the reports.

Salam these videos are old & spread by anti Iran media few years ago in name of killing demonstrators inside Iran by IRGC but at last it becomes clear that original videos are about killing Palestinians by Israelis & these videos again is spreading in name of killing iraqis by IIRGC or Hashd Al Shabi by channels that  are supporting fake Yemani that says all Shia Marjas must be killed & Shias must obey Fake Yamani as representative of Imam Mahdi (aj)

Of course the nearly 200 innocent Iraqi  protesters killed and the thousands injured the past month are all fake videos and old news from Iran's protestors and paltestinains??

I would have shared some of the footage here but it's too gruesome. 

Please think twice before posting your conspiracy theory nonsense because you're being very offensive. People are losing their live's for their dignity and you call it fake news.

I following all news about protestors and saw your claimed videos & I saw it during Iran protests too that released in name of killing irnians by IRGC inside Iran and now these videos are repeating with new title of killing Iraqis with Hash al Shabi& other pro Iran militant but you obviously & intentinaly didn't refer to martyring & burning alive of leader of "Asaeb brigards " that had great in in fight with ISIS/Daesh  and his brother inside an Ambulance while he was injured by fake protesters.

I'm going to be honest about one thing. I've never really been a proud Iraqi. I used to always ridicule my own country, because of its corrupt government and messed up people. But there are people dying. My own people. The very same land where Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) and his family were brutally murdered, slaughtered and mutiliated. The same land where Abbas (عليه السلام) fought to bring water to the little ones, the same land where Sayyeda Zainab (عليه السلام) ran between the flames crying out for her brother. And yet, hardly anyone talks about the legacy that the Ahlul Bayt(عليه السلام) left on this blessed land. Where youngsters are getting killed. People tend to stay silent on such matters. For years Iraq has never been able to live in peace, not only because of terrorist groups, or the US or that oil war (I don't know im not into politics), but because of its messed up government who don't even give the slightest damn about their own nation. Its because of their ignorance that has led to such issues. Never had they ever brought any good or improved the lives of their citizens. And till this day protests still take place, because they have had enough. They want a better life, a better future for the next generation that is yet to come, and I agree that these protests won't make a difference, but our people won't stop fighting no matter what, even if it means death. It's not like they're just going to sit there and watch their country deteriorate without doing anything about it. 

And yet all these corrupt politicans do is just sit there and smoke weed, watching little kids die without giving the slightest sympathy.

As an Iraqi from Kut I do not support the protest. I can support a protest against the government but this protest is not against the government it's against Iran. And how bad can you people get? It was like yesterday isis was standing outside Baghdad when no one helped us except Iran. Iran is the one who supported us against isis and it's thanks to them that we could defead isis. And of course they have already forgot about that and they're already out to kill the one nation that saved us. You know that in Islam  you must be thankful and even try to give someone back if they helped you with something. I think it's our duty to help our brothers in Iran in these difficult times when The United States and Israel is putting up the pressure. These protests are a result of media brainwashing in Iraq and I hope you realize that. May God be with you brother.

I was thinking the same thing. It would be awkward for me to see a Canadian police vehicles here in the US. Not sure why it would be normal for Iranian patrol vehicles to be in Iraq. Even if the vehicles were transportation regulators, it would be strange.

I remember when Syrian protests started out peacefully and people insisted that Assad would hold fair elections and would step down.

Will Iraq's protests end differently?

I still can't help but wonder, are radicals like IS produced by oppressive and corrupt governments, or are oppressive and corrupt governments produced by radicals?
