With post-election street protests turning violent, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) steps up efforts to hunt down political web activists behind the unrest.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the IRGC warned that it would identify and arrest those who use the internet as a platform to create mayhem in the country.
“Over the past few days, cyber saboteurs have intensified civil unrest through a number of provocative news sites and weblogs,” read the statement.
“They encourage people to take to the streets and cause mayhem by casting doubt on the democratic process of the Iranian elections,” the statement added.
The IRGC said it has proof that the web-based campaign against the Iranian election results is in fact masterminded by ‘intelligence organizations in the US and Canada’.
The June 12 presidential election, which saw incumbent Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad re-elected for a second term in office, has caused mass protests across in the past three days.
The rallies, which often lead to disorderly conduct, have grabbed the headlines of foreign media outlets.
IRGC warned that foreign media outlets play an important role in the unprecedented post-election chaos.
