According to the latest reports armed struggle against the Islamic Regime occupying Iran has begun by the Lor, Bakhtiari and Qashqai tribes of Iran. These are unconfirmed news but again I felt the need to post this as in case this is true it is indeed a major event which needs to get COVERED; please inform everyone of this very important news report, and if anyone has more news on it please share it with us.
One of my compatriots has translated this article into english for it to reach a wider audience.
The Beginning of Armed Struggle by Lor, Bakhtiari and Qashqai Tribes of Iran:
Urgent News: (2/1/2007)
Subject: National Uprising
Bulletin issued by NAMA* and ARA** Organizations
The great uprising to free the nation of Iran started yesterday by courageous native tribes of Iran in the Isfahan and neighboring provinces. Many nationalist heroic Iranians have joined this movement from other areas, including exiled Iranian community.
Yesterday, the region of Samirom and in between the state of Isfahan and city of Yasouj, was the scene of an armed battle between the regime’s Pasdar and Basij*** forces and the Partisans and Fighters of the region. This battle occurred at the front lines of the regime’s armed forces and caused heavy casualties. Most casualties were regimes armed forces.
Following this battle, Samirom, Yasouj and tribal regions of the Fars State have been declared RED areas by the regime.
In this battle, the young fighters and partisans, armed with hunting rifles and old armament were able to defeat the heavily armed forces of the regime and forced them to retreat. These operations were conducted by thousands of tribal fighters and the fighters succeeded to free vast tribal regions and several villages in the state of Isfahan and neighboring states.
These are mountainous regions that are in control of these Iranian tribes.
The regime’s reaction to this defeat has been to declare this conflict as a conflict with armed smugglers, who had arrived to this region from Sistan and Baluchistan province. This is obviously a lie as those regions are hundreds of miles away.
Further bulletins will be issued in due course.
*"Nirouhaye Azadibakhshe Mobareze Iran"
**"Arteshe Rahaiibakhshe Melli Iran"
*** "Pasdar" is the persian term for the "Revolutionary Guards" which is an idelogical army created to defend the Islamic Republic and its establishment; the "Basij" is yet another ideological military force (heavily armed) comprised of thugs and indoctrinated poor villagers - this latter force is especially known for its brutality against the people of Iran.
UPDATE: IranPressNews reports the Islamic Republic's version of events which labels these unknown forces as "drug smugglers" which is highly unlikely.
