US has Warned Iran Not To Attack Protesters

US President Donald Trump has warned Iran not to kill protesters who were demonstrating after Tehran admitting to have shot an  airline by mistake which claimed 179 people aboard. 

The Boeing 737 was shot by  Iran when it launched attacks on the two US airbases in Iraq last Wednesday. Tehran that had first denied its responsibility of the crashed airline later admitted that the airline was mistakingly shot by its attack.

The miscalculation from the side of Iran has generated a lot of demonstrations by its citizens blaming the government of its reckless move.

People staged out in protest  during a Saturday gathering in Tehran to honor those killed when the Ukraine International Airlines plane was shot down shortly after taking off from Tehran.

Trump tweeted, “The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people,” 

His message was released after Iranian police dispersed students chanting “radical” slogans.

Trump said, “To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you.

“We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage," Trump added

There was a crackdown on street protests that broke out in November, with Amnesty International saying it left more than 300 people dead as reported by Daily Post.

He opined that it would not be tolerated if another massacre broke out of peaceful protesters in the country.

“There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching,” said Trump.
