Tehran, Jun. 12 – State Security Forces have carried out a series of destructive raids on homes in northeast Iran as part of a new campaign to silence dissent, according to local residents.

Residents in the No-Dareh region of the city of Mashad complained that government forces destroyed their livelihood, leaving nothing more than rubble on the sites where their homes used to be.

“State Security Forces and officials from the mayor’s office brought cranes and bulldozers and they sealed off the entire area. They brought down everyone’s homes”, said one eye-witness.

Official explanation for why the demolition was carried out has been that the houses were built on government land without a legal permit from authorities.
