Iranian Basiji Students Send Flotilla to Bahrain

Iranian hardliner basiji students sent a flotilla today to Bahrain to support the pro-Iranian Shia protesters.

Pity if something happened to their boat.

Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi reported this at The Tatler:

Two hundred Iranian pro-regime students, members of the Basiji militia, stationed in the gulf city of Bushehr have sailed to Bahrain on their own flotilla to join the Bahraini Shiite protesters.

In an interview with the Iranian Student’s News Agency, Abbas Aalizadeh, public relations spokesperson for the so-called students claimed that this was ‘a spontaneous act on the part of the students and that they were not acting as anyone’s proxy and the ships were privately owned.’ Aalizadeh added: “We are determined and we will stay on our path to see the mission through.”
