CIA, Israel, Saudi Arabia behind protests: Iran's prosecutor

05 de enero de 2018, 11:55Tehran, Jan 5 (Prensa Latina) Iran " s attorney general, Jafar Montazeri, denounced those responsible for the protests in the country that were conceived by a group of experts from the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Montazeri referred to "an operations room" in the United States, claiming it had been laying the groundwork for protest rallies across Iran since 2014.

He added that the main projector of the plan was an American national named Michael Andrea, a former Central Intelligence Agency member in charge of combatting terrorism that formed the group to create unrest in the Islamic Republic. Montazeri is quoted in Irans Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) as saying that Andrea, and an unnamed officer affiliated with Israel's spy agency Mossad, masterminded the plot dubbed the ‘Consequential Convergence Doctrine and that Saudi Arabia picked up the bill.

According to Montazeri, who was quoted by Mehr News, the brain behind the operation was the USA citizen Michael D'Andrea, chief of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) station in Iran. Iran has been rocked by a week of violent protests that began over the country's economic hardships but now include anti-government messages. He also blasted Donald Trump for inciting “disruptive acts.”.

In contrast to what prosecutor Montazeri has claimed, according to President Hassan Rouhani's allies, the unrest was initiated by the city of Mashhad's ultraconservative Friday Prayer leader, Ayatollah Ahmad Alam al-Hoda, and his son-in-law, Rouhani's main challenger in last May's presidential election, to undermine the government.
