The deputy provincial governor of Tehran said police have arrested more than 450 protesters in the capital over the past three days as security forces struggle to contain the boldest challenge to Iran's clerical leadership since unrest in 2009.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has finally broken his silence on the ongoing protests against his regime and said these events are orchestrated by "enemies" of Tehran.

The fifth night of unrest saw six protesters killed during an attack on a police station in Qahderijan in the central province of Isfahan, state TV said Tuesday.

"I have something to say about these issues [recent protests] and will speak with our dear people at the proper time", he added.

Elsewhere, the Leader highlighted the sacrifices of martyrs during the Iraqi war against Iran during the Saddam regime.

According to Article 27 of the Iranian Constitution, "public gatherings and marches are allowed so long as the participants do not carry arms and are not in violation of the fundamental principles of Islam".

Earlier, state TV said armed demonstrators on Sunday had tried to seize police and military bases but were stopped by "strong resistance from security forces". At least 36 people were killed in 2009, according to an official toll, while the opposition says 72 died. A representative of the ILNA news agency reported that 80 demonstrators were arrested overnight in Arak, around 300 kilometers southwest of Tehran.

Syria blamed the United States and Israel for destabilizing the region.

Corbyn's connection with the pro-Islamist, and pro-Islamic Republic element of the political left is a blight on his record that may yet negatively impact his chances of winning the next election.

In the western city of Kermanshah, protesters set fire to a traffic police post, but no one was hurt in the incident, Mehr news agency said.

The United States is hardly exempt from risks either. A recent increase in egg and poultry prices by as much as 40 percent, which the government has blamed on a cull over avian flu fears, appears to have been the spark for the economic protests.

"The detention figures for other Iranian cities cannot be confirmed".

To begin with they were about the economy, unemployment and inflation.

Mr Rouhani's new government's budget last week provided detailed account of the funds allocated to various national defence projects for the first time. People must stay on the streets until the rulers succumb to this demand.

But it then predicted that sending IRGC or the Bassij forces would "backfire" and would further "antagonize the protesters".

The meeting notes that the leader of the NCRI, Maryam Rajavi, and the "Infidels", which the translation says refers to "the West", "are united for the first time". One thing is for sure: there is one man who can actually pivot things in a good direction - and it's not Donald Trump.

"The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years".

A cleric said: "The newspapers in England called him a clown, a liar, and he comes here to tell us to release two spies, who've sold out their country".

"We believe it is necessary to avoid violence and not succumb to provocations", the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that it hoped foreign intervention would be avoided.

"All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their 'pockets, '" Trump wrote, apparently referring to the nuclear deal reached under his predecessor.
