DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis April 2, 2016

At a news conference Friday, April 1, at the end of the nuclear summit, Barack Obama demanded more Western trade benefits for Iran – despite its “provocative” actions. debkafile:  Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has forced President Hassan Rouhani to earmark 50 percent of funds released by sanctions relief for those same “provocative” actions – namely, Iran’s nuclear and missile programs.

debkafile's Iranian sources reveal that Mir Hossein Mousavi's nephew, Ali Habib, was not shot dead during a Tehran demonstration Sunday, Dec. 27, as reported, but waylaid and gunned down as he left his home. Fresh riots followed the disappearance of the body Monday. The episode became even more ominous when Iran's security services chief Gen. Radan accused Mousavi of the murder to incite further violence. The opposition fears that the murder of Mousavi's nephew augurs physical liquidations of its leaders.
Monday, Dec. 28, the authorities prevented the young man's body from leaving the hospital for fear of a mass funeral that would get out of control.
The current upsurge of violence across Iran is the most dangerous yet because for the first time demonstrators are turning round to attack security forces, the Revolutionary Guardsmen and Basijj paramilitaries.
debkafile's Iranian sources report that to fend off the furious masses, whose numbers are swelling into tens of thousands and more, security forces are firing live bullets and tear gas in the crowds.
As for the US and the Europeans, they are seeing proof of the fallaciousness of their policy to refrain from applying undue foreign pressure on Tehran for fear of rallying the Iranian people around the regime.
