Regime attacks houses to confiscate satellite dishes

Fearing the growing popularity of the main opposition satellite channel, Iran National TV (Simay-e Azadi), the Iranian regime’s State Security Forces (SSF) in Esfahan have arrested 800 people during raids of houses and business to combat satellite viewership.

The state-run news website Saham News quoted Hassan Karami, the SSF’s commander in Esfahan, as saying, “Public security agents have carried out a planned operation to confiscate satellite equipment.”

He said raids against shops and residences led to the arrest of “five gangs involved in manufacturing and distributing these products in the black market.”

800 people were also arrested, according to the suppressive SSF commander, and 28,221 pieces of satellite equipment have been confiscated by the regime.
