Tehran/Washington – Iranian universities are enrolling students, who are willing to carry out suicide attacks on the United States and Israel to avenge the killing of Iran’s top military commander Major-General Qassem Soleimani. The Iranian media created a sensation by carrying the report. Not just that, but the Iranian media have even posted the application for it on the website. The Iranian regime is thus sending the message that Iran may not have military strength comparable to the United States. Still, it can get the United States and Israel to its knees with terrorist attacks.
The application form is being distributed as fliers and carries a message from the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. It is in the Farsi language and has the following message, ‘Hard revenge is underway for those criminals who killed Qassem Soleimani. Kill all infidels. A plan is being drawn out for the purpose. Registration for volunteers to commit a suicide attack against the United States and Israel is available.’ Amir Abbas Fakhravar, an Iranian dissident, who fled Iran after being frustrated with the Iranian regime, has translated the flier for a US newspaper. The leaflets were distributed in Iran’s ‘Islamic Azad University’. The US daily claimed that the fliers seek details from the applicants such as name, birth date, educational qualifications, occupation, phone number and special skills if any. The leaflets for the registrations are being distributed by the student wing Basij paramilitary militia, affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
The Basij militia, led by Qassem Soleimani at one point in time, is being used for enlisting and recruiting suicide attackers. Also, the militia is allegedly being used to carry out brutal action and crush the anti-government protests.
Meanwhile, as the Iranian regime is using the university for planning attacks against the United States and Israel, the number of students participating in the anti-government protests is also increasing. Reportedly, the centre for the demonstrations is located at the Iranian universities as well. In some places, the youth have even torn the circulated posters of the Iranian leaders, videos of which were published.
Incidents have surfaced in Iran of people having refused to trample the US and Israeli flags and even condemning the ones carrying out such acts. US President Donald Trump has taken cognisance of the incidents and commended the Iranian protestors. Moreover, President Trump has warned the Iranian regime against killing the protestors. Otherwise, Iran must remain prepared for dire consequences.
