Videos published on Twitter today showed Iranians in the city of Andimeshk tearing down a large billboard portraying Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces who were killed in Syria.



The Iranians are seen cheering and celebrating as the billboard falls to the ground in the videos. The action was seen as protest against Iran's involvement in the Syrian civil war.
IRNA, the Iranian news agency, reported that the protest was due to disagreements on the location of the billboard.




More than 271 protests occurred in January, according to the Iran News Wire. Most of them were about economic issues.
