Reports are stating about the Heroic action of the Iranian Army in the Iranian province of Kordestan.

Based on these reports the Army blocked the access to the town of Saghez to hundreds of Militiamen sent to repress the protest action which rocked this town in the last 2 days.

No clash has been reported following the cancellation, by the Islamic regime, of the mission attributed to the Militiamen.

Already, such signs of support have been expressed at several occasions, by members of the regular Military and "Law Enforcement Forces",in cities such as Ghazvin, Shahin-Shahr but also in several areas of Tehran confirming the hidden support of most Regular forces of the Popular aspirations.

Other reports are stating that, in Sanandaj, an angry crowd moved toward the Islamic State's representation and burned the Islamic Republic Flag, in the Cyrus street. This unprecedented action happened following the
attack, by the Militians, of peaceful protesters resulting in several injured among helpless people.

The current Islamic flag is rejected by a majority of the Iranians as a symbol of the Rule of Dictatorship in Iran and they cherish the banned "Lion and Sun".

Tehran, IRAN. On February 11, members of the Iranian regular army and law enforcement blocked the access to the town of Saghes by hundreds of paramilitary volunteer forces sent in by the Islamic regime to suppress a protest action that has been rocking the town for the last two days.

According to other incoming reports, an angry crowd in the town of Sanandaj marched to the Islamic government headquarters and burned an
Islamic Republic flag in front of it. This unprecedented action appeared to be peaceful protesters' response to violent attacks by militia, as a result of which several protesters were injured.

Protest actions swept the country on February 9, the eve of the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

In most Iranian cities, peaceful demonstrations were broken up by militiamen. In some cities, such as Ghazvin and Shahinshahr, law enforcement refused to use force.
