Iran Supreme Leader hails forces who cracked down on protesters | Inside Story
Al Jazeera, 27 Nov 2022
No concessions - that's the thrust of a long and defiant speech by Iran's Supreme Leader.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rejected protesters' demands for reforms, calling them rioters.
He was addressing members of the Basij, a paramilitary group.
Hundreds of demonstrators have been killed since the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody in September.
The protests have turned into one of the biggest challenges to Iran's clerical leadership since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
