Structural change in Bassij force in fear of major February uprising

Structural change in Bassij force and introduction of other measures in fear of major February uprising

According to reports, the mullahs' regime is trying in vain to prevent the continuation and expansion of social uprisings particularly in February by making changes in the structure of the suppressive Bassij paramilitary force. In order to expedite the dispatch of agents to various areas of Tehran, and increase the impact of the Revolutionary Guards and Bassij in those areas, every area under Bassij control has been divided into five smaller areas that increases the four existing Bassij areas to 20. Each area will cover 10 mosques instead of 40. In this structural change that takes effect from Arbaeen (Februay 5), all 20 areas of the Bassij are directly under the command of the so-called "Mohammad Rasoul-Allah" of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The IRGC, fearful of the dimension of the people's uprising planned for the anniversary of the 1979 revolution on February 11, has given the control of all main squares and streets of Tehran to Bassij force. With their heavy presence in the main squares and streets, people will be forced to move to side streets and allies. Moreover gangs of motorcyclists are planned to roam in the main squares and streets to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.
