Iran After Air Strike in Syria

U.S., U.K. and French forces launched airstrikes targeting sites associated with Syria’s chemical-weapons capabilities, a reprisal for chemical attack that killed at least 43 civilians and injured hundreds more.

The decision to strike was aimed at cutting off the production and use of chemical weapons in the country.

The assault was twice the size and hit two more targets than a strike that Mr. Trump ordered last year against a Syrian military airfield.

European Union countries, Canada, Australia, members of Arab union and Gulf countries and … have fully supported the airstrike, among a few countries who condemned this attack was Iran who Warn After U.S. Strikes in Syria and said There Will Be ‘Consequences’ and will have regional implications

Iran‘s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said coordinated air strikes on Syria by the United States, France and Britain on Saturday were a crime that would bring no benefit.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has also slammed out at the Western states that had conducted a joint massive missile strike on targets in Syria and warned of “regional consequences.”

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that the US-led attack against Syria will lead to the destruction of the Middle Eastern countries. But despite this bluster and heated rhetoric going, on the more we conclude, it seems like it was a strike against Iranian capacities in the region. Because this strike was the result of one basic problem, that is, Iran came to Mr. Assad’s aid, sending fighters and organized an international airlift of militia fighters from a number of countries to bolster Mr. Assad’s military and to animate him for a chemical attack.

U.S., U.K. and French airstrikes also escalate the internal situation in Iran, destabilize the Iranian regime and unite the different factions of society in Iran, and created Social integrity and aspiration.

According to NCRI reports On April 17, 2018, thousands of people in the city of Kazerun demonstrated for the second day running in the city’s main square. The merchants refused to open their shops. The protesters were chanting, “Our enemy is right here, but they keep saying it is America,” “No fear, we are all together,” “the movement will continue until we obtain our rights.” The protests, in which women played an active role, led to clashes with the security forces as the protesters tried to enter the Governor’s Office.

In another development, on April 16, the families of those detained during the April demonstrations in Ahvaz staged a protest outside the Governor’s Office and the office of the Majlis Deputy from the city. The security forces attempted to disperse the crowd through intimidation. During the protests by the people of Ahvaz and other cities in Khuzestan Province, hundreds, including 11 to 15-year-old children, have been arrested whose fate is unknown.

On Sunday, April 15, 2018, in addition to the strikes of merchants and shopkeepers in Baneh and Javanrood cities, protests by deprived and oppressed people continued in various cities:

At midnight of Sunday, April 15, 2018, suppressive forces attacked houses of Khorasgan people in Isfahan, to prevent the spread of protests and demonstrations by farmers and people, and arrested a number of farmers and youths in the city.

Throughout the day and night, repressive forces had an intense presence around the city in an effort to intensify the atmosphere of fear and intimidation. The anti-riot mercenaries also moved toward the city in 20 cars and four buses to stop the demonstrations of the people of Varzaneh.

On Saturday, in spite of repressive measures in Isfahan, farmers gathered at the Khourasgan Square and Abazar Ave. They chanted: “Imprisoned farmer should be freed; farmer dies, but does not accept humiliation; we are the women and men of battle, we get back our right to water.”

To end this we could conclude that the U.S., U.K. and French airstrikes had impact on the region and especially the internal situation in Iran .
