November 2019s demonstrations showed the true art of the Islamic Republic in being limitless in the field of suppression
In the November protests of Iran, the Islamic Republic did the same thing as before, suppressing people and cutting their voice. But this time the Islamic republic interred a new phase. In previous demonstrations, people were captured, tortured, a few killed and people were hurt. Security forces attacked people. Captured people in their houses illegally without authorization (which is an all-time thing), the number of bodies never got back to families. But using heavy machine guns that shoot powerful caliber ammo- for military use- and armed vehicles with automatic cannon which they are used for military operations too.
According to Radio Farda, suppression forces used a wide variety of weapons during the protests.
One of the weapons that were used significantly much, was Flobert rifle. These rifles shoot small cartridge and do not blow the flesh when hit, but in the close distance can be deadly. There have been many protesters with injuries from this gun.
Shotguns were another favorite option for security forces to suppress demonstrations. Shotguns do not deal critical damage in long distance because it shoots small plumbic balls at a time that penetrates human flesh but doesn’t kill, although, in close distance they wreck the body. One of the high authorities confirmed police forces being armed with shotguns during the recent protests.
Semi-auto and automatic rifles had a great roll in November protests. Automatic rifles like MP5 and AK47 were numerously in use. These guns shoot military cartridge and are 100 percent deadly. And semi-auto sidearms were used too and a significant number of protesters were shot and killed by these types of guns.
A great wonder during the November protests was using heavy machine guns to shoot people. Heavy machine guns are featured for military use. These weapons can shoot 500 to 1000 bullets with powerful caliber per minute and even more. There have been reports from eyewitnesses about using these types of weapons against protesters that were running and hiding in the canebrakes in Mahshahr city.
November protests were surely rightful and legal. Protesting is a civil right for all societies. The Islamic Republic in answering to these rightful protests opened a space for heavy-armed vehicles featured with automatic cannons and machine guns. Even though no reports have informed about using the firepower of these weapons. But using these weapons that are meant for military use, is a violation itself and an act of suppression.
For controlling rebels, there are methods and special equipment. rebel control forces- based on the code- should deal as less damage as possible. the Rebel control forces are bound to prevent destruction and death. But in a special dictator government like the Islamic Republic, control rebel forces and other forces like para-military Basif forces, and revolutionary guard forces, are bound to suppress and cut voices of protesters. Protesters who just demand their basic rights.
