Iranian woman whose brother was killed in Iraq speaks out at rally

Published: Updated:

An Iranian woman who said her brother was killed fighting in Iraq has spoken out at a rally as anti-government protests gripped dozens of cities across the country this week.

In the video, she is heard saying:“We’re not American or Israeli. We’ve given our lives for this country. But look at us now.”

The outbreak of unrest reflects growing discontent over rising prices and alleged corruption, as well as concern about the Islamic Republic's costly involvement in regional conflicts such as those in Syria and Iraq.
