Later Hassan Rouhani, Iran President, announced that people who were killed have been shot by unknown groups who were wearing casual clothing and they were not police. He said in his speech that some injured people had been walkers and were just passing by and weren’t among the protesters. A video published in social media shows that a shooter is hiding behind a tree and targeting people. The protest called “Bloody Aban” and protesters were people, university students and other groups who were opposing the Iranian Regime basically. In this protest people put one of the police stations and their cars on fire and attacked many banks including Central Bank of Iran. Many banks were closed for days in different cities in Iran.

Some of protesters were dissidents of Iranian mandatory hijab who were supported by Iranians out of Iran who were confronting Islamic Republic of Iran.

Ignoring the number of people who have attended in this election that has not been reported yet, BBC News disclosed that refraining the attendance in voting or low number of votes can not break down the government or make it illegitimate. BBC News reported of Afghanistan President that was elected with attendance of 19% of the eligible ones in this country recently.
