IRAN IN CHAOS: Truck Drivers Continue to Strike as Currency Slides to New Record Low

The Iranian rial continued its slide to a new record low, dropping past 100,000 rials to the US dollar.

The currency is down 50 percent since April — just before the US pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal.

At the same time truck drivers in 125 cities and 30 provinces continued their seventh day of strikes against the regime. reported:

The truck drivers of Iran put behind the seventh day of their nationwide strike on Sunday. Their strike spans over many of Iran’s major cities, including Isfahan, Shar-e Kord, Mashhad, Qazvin, Urmia, Kazerun, Chalus, Arak, Kermanshah, Baneh, Shiraz, and Tabriz.

At the terminal of Tarq, Isfahan, the Iranian regime’s agents had put several truck tires on sale at lower prices to break the truck drivers’ strike. But the truck drivers ignored the regime’s offers. The regime is also using trucks and organizations tied to the Revolutionary Guards to counter the effects of the truckers’ strike.

In the past seven days, truck drivers from 125 cities and 30 provinces of Iran have joined the strike and stopped their operations.
