Iran is on the brink of revolution as tensions escalate with thousands flooding city streets and chanting ‘death to the dictator,’ an expert has warned.
Protests erupted last week ahead of renewed US sanctions which came into force on Tuesday hitting Tehran’s access to US banknotes and key industries such as cars and carpets.
Videos shared online showed furious Iranians burning tyres and setting fire to police vehicles as demonstrations spun out of control.
The protests have continued this week as Iranians – suffering high inflation and a currency crisis – demand a change from the hard-line Muslim regime.
One expert told MailOnline today that these protests are unprecedented and Iran is on the edge of revolution.
