Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called anti-government protests "scattered riots" designed by the enemy, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Wednesday.

“These scattered riots are the passive and clumsy design of the enemy against the great and innovative developments and movements of the Iranian nation,” Khamenei said.

“The cure against enemies is to stand up to them,” he added.
