ImageTehran, Iran, Jul. 15 – Iran’s State Security Forces (SSF) are once again confiscating satellite dishes in the capital Tehran.

SSF agents were spotted raiding houses in Amir Abad and Seyed Khandan districts in Tehran on Saturday, rounding up satellite dishes and equipment.

Further patrols have continued in recent days.

The SSF said in May it had confiscated 84,000 satellite dishes during the Persian calendar year that ended March 20.

SSF agents routinely go up rooftops in Tehran and other major cities removing satellite dishes which are banned in Islamic Iran.

The Islamic Republic banned satellite dishes in 1995. The crackdown on satellite dishes was prompted by broadcasts from Iranian opposition groups whose television programs reportedly have a large audience in Iran.
