Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called the ongoing protests against the hijab in the country a conspiracy by the US and Israel. Khamenei said on Monday that these two countries were behind the nationwide protests. He said that America is behind such riots and an atmosphere of insecurity.
Khamenei said it also included US agents and some fraudulent Iranians settled abroad. Significantly, 22-year-old Mahsha Amini was beaten up by the police for not wearing a hijab in Iran. A few days later, Amini died on 16 September. Since then, there have been large-scale demonstrations in Iran. Many women are involved in this, and bullets have also been fired on women in many places.83-year-old Khamenei's statement has come for the first time since Amini's death. He said that the police must take action against the criminals. It also said that whoever attacks the police makes them helpless against criminals, thugs, and thieves.
