The country of Iran has descended into chaos and murder tonight. Reports are FLOODING IN about ongoing explosions and gunfire in Tehran and, at the same time, a report of GENOCIDE being carried out against Kurds by Iranian Army forces in the city of Mahabad.
We begin coverage with a series of large explosions and almost non-stop gunfire taking place right now in the Iranian capital city of Tehran.
Social media is lit-up with video showing the ongoing explosions, gunfire and chaos:

According to eye-witnesses on the ground there, Iranian military forces are going door-to-door, rounding up people the government doesn't like, taking them into the street and shooting them dead.
Screams and ongoing gunfire fill the city.

Power has been cut in Mahabad and they are bringing weapons of war to murder Iranian Kurds. An Iranian Kurd wrote;”we gave our blood for all of Iran, please don’t leave us alone!” #مهاباد #Kurdistan #WestAzerbaiJan #Iran #MahsaAmini #ToomajSalehi pic.twitter.com/EDj4q3ei5d
