US President Donald Trump on Monday blasted the clerical regime in Tehran for repressing its people as anti-government protests and demonstrations spread to more Iranian cities.
Reports claim more than 12 lives, including a policeman have been lost.
Protesters tried to overrun military bases and police stations before security forces repelled them.
“TIME FOR CHANGE!” wrote Trump on his Twitter account, expressing US support for the demonstrators.
The country is “failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration,” the US president said.
“The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years,” he wrote. “They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted.”
