On Thursday morning, the Iranian authorities seized control of a fire that broke out in the Ramsar Hotel cinema in the city of Ramsar, which is located in the west of Mazandaran Province, on the slopes of the Alborz Mountains.

According to the Iranian Ilna news agency, Ramsar Governor Muhammad Azad announced controlling the fire, pointing out that the size of the losses at the historic Ramsar Hotel is great, and there were no casualties, and the causes of the fire are now being investigated.

Ramsar city is 35 km away from the shores of the Caspian Sea, and it is characterized by the picturesque nature and peaks of the Alborz Mountains that extend along this traditional city.

Reports indicated that internet services were suspended in several regions in Iran on the eve of forty victims of the fuel protests last November, which killed more than 300 people, according to reports by international organizations, a number Iran denies.

Ilna news agency quoted a reliable source in the Iranian Ministry of Communications that “the mobile Internet was cut off in a number of provinces by order of the security authorities”.

Protests erupted last November, against the government’s decision to raise fuel prices to 50% amid an acute economic crisis in Tehran and widespread unemployment.

Yesterday, activists on social media circulated video clips of night demonstrations in solidarity with the victims of the fuel protests, according to websites opposed to Iran.

Several video clips, showing a heavy security deployment of the Special Security Forces and riot police in most of the provinces from Ahvaz in the south to Tabriz in the northeast.

Meanwhile, Iran faces a month from now in February 2020 listing on the FATF blacklist, unless it joins the United Nations Convention against Organized Crime “Palermo” and the “International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism” CFT, at a time Some hard-line currents are seeking to block the approval of the Expediency Council again.
