Jalali added: “Both Israel and another country are working into making Iranian clouds not rainy. In addition to this, they are stealing rain and snow too.”

He continued saying: “According to the studies that included Afghanistan’s highlands to the Mediterranean Sea, we see that all the highlands that are over 2,200 meters are covered in snow but our highlands are dry.”

The statement comes after massive protests in southwestern Iran, in the cities of Muhammarah and Abadan, because of the pollution, lack of water and a deteriorating economic situation of their city, with slogans being chanted against “regime thieves” being heard.

At least four demonstrators were shot dead overnight Saturday by Iran’s security forces during protests against the regime.

Last week, Iranian protesters angered by Iran’s cratering economy confronted police while chanting ‘Death to Palestine’, ‘Leave Syria, think of us’, with security forces firing tear gas at them.
