US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday attacked the Iranian regime, describing it as “criminal” who does not respect the people’s rights.

In a series of tweets, Secretary Pompeo criticized the regime financial support for terrorist groups while the Iranian citizens are living in poverty.

In one of the tweets he pointed to the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic, saying thousands are thrown in jails during last January protests, while more than 30 females were imprisoned for protesting against wearing the hijab.

He also tweeted that nearly 30 percent of Iran’s youth are unemployed.
