The Islamic Republic has recently admitted to accidentally shooting down an airliner headed for Ukraine. This resulted in the death of all 176 people on board.
CNBC reports that protests have erupted this weekend. Hundreds of protesters came out in Tehran and chanted "anti-government slogans".
The protests made such a splash that President Donald Trump took to Twitter to show his support for the protesters. He tweeted in both Farsi and English saying:
"To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I've stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage."
"The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people. There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching."
