(Worthy News) - Iran’s most influential military commander on Wednesday declared the wave of anti-regime protests rocking nation as over, despite reports that demonstrators continue to fill the streets in more than a dozen cities.

Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), also said those who’ve participated in the rallies were guilty of “sedition,” according to Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency.

“Now we can say that it is the day when the 1396 sedition ended,” the general said, in reference to the current year in the Persian calendar. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
