Tehran, Iran, Jul. 25 – Iran’s official news agency, IRNA, reported disturbances in the north-western Kurdish town of Sardasht, Western Azerbaijan, on Sunday evening.

“Gatherings and disturbances took place on Sunday evening in the border town of Sardasht. The town returned to normal after State Security Forces intervened”, the news agency said in a dispatch on Monday.

The report said that “troublemakers” set fire to tyres in the streets and set off sonic booms.

Iranian officials and state-run media often refer to anti-government protesters as troublemakers.

Sardasht and other Kurdish towns such as Mahabad have been the scene of widespread anti-government protests and clashes in recent days.

Last night, demonstrators threw stones at the paramilitary police, according to the state news agency.

The SSF launched a crackdown on protestors in an attempt to disperse them. Traffic came to a halt during the unrest, IRNA said.

Sardasht has a population of approximately one hundred thousand people.
