Mass protests over water shortages in southwest Iran continued for a sixth night on Tuesday while residents in the capital of Tehran chanted anti-regime slogans, according to videos received by Avatoday on Wednesday.
The videos show increasing violence in Water Crisis protests as people began chanting slogans against the regime and its Supreme Leader.
One of the videos shows protesters in the city of Susangerd setting a tank on fire. Avatoday could not independently authenticate the video.
Iran has sent hundreds of its forces and military vehicles to crush the demonstrators.
Several videos uploaded by social media users in Khuzestan province showed security forces using teargas and gunfire to suppress protesters in various towns and cities.
Several opposition groups and activists called for demonstrations to support the Khuzestan protesters. Shortly after, videos, which surfaced on late Tuesday and early Wednesday, showed women chanting "Down with the Islamic Republic" at a Tehran metro station.
Moreover, at night, some people in the capital expressed their anger with chants against Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
At least two young men have been shot dead in the protests and dozens more were wounded. Iranian authorities have blamed armed protesters, but activists said on social media they were killed by security forces.
Iran's ethnic Arab minority, who mostly live in the oil-rich Khuzestan province, have long said they face discrimination in the country.
