This follows intelligence report that some “domestic interests” are planning to embark on massive public disturbances and sabotage to protest the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in an airstrike by the United States.
Soleimani, who headed Iran’s elite Quds Force was killed in Baghdad, Iraq on Friday.
