TEHRAN, Iran – The Iranian leadership has blamed Saudi Arabia for peaceful protests calling for economic reforms descending into violent bouts.

Spokesperson of Iran’s Parliamentary Committee on National Security, Hossein Naqvi has said that “the people will respond wisely to Saudi’s support for the latest turmoil,” according to resistance media, Al-Mayadeen.

The accusation comes as Ansar al-Furqan, a radical Sunni Islamist group has called for a violent uprising against the Iranian government. 

This also comes as Iranian media claimed that radical terrorists are infiltrating Iranian cities to try and turn peaceful protests into an armed uprising, reminiscent to Syria in 2011. Full details can be read in this report.
