Iranian opposition journalist Mohammad Nourizad said in an interview broadcast on YouTube that he thinks the Iranian regime is involved in targeting Riyadh with the ballistic missile which Houthi militias fired from Yemen.
Nourizad slammed the Iranian regime and described it as “the regime of the bloody Middle Ages” and criticized it for interfering in Iraq and Syria.
“Iran is bitterly confronting the fear of removal,” he said.
Nourizad, who was part of supreme leader Ali Khamenei’s close circles before defecting from them, said the world views Iran in such a horrific way.
“They see it like there is a bunch of executors and killers governing while taking the people hostage,” he said.
Nourizad also called on the Iranians to engage in peaceful struggle to change the regime.
“Our struggle does not call for taking up weapons or hanging mullahs. We must resume peaceful work to force them to submit,” he added.
