At least 1,000 people have been arrested in the biggest anti-government protests for almost a decade, with the judiciary saying ringleaders could face the death penalty.

Mr Khamenei said US President Donald Trump was grandstanding when he tweeted support for protesters he said were trying "to take back their corrupt government" and promising "great support from the United States at the appropriate time!"

Demonstrations broke out across Iran last month fueled by anger at the lackluster economy and official corruption.

The US, Britain and Zionist have been blamed by Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for the violent protests that have rocked the capital of Tehran and other cities in the Asian country.

Hammad said that the protests in Iran are "no surprise" and that they had been expected since 2009, stressing that the Iranian government will contain them through new domestic economic policies that would appeal to the masses. In a series of tweets from the official account, he accused that all of Iran's adversaries - the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel - were involved in orchestrating the rallies.

The Iranian Shiite citizens are traditionally governed by two leaders, one politically and another spiritually, represented in the president and the supreme leader of the Islamic republic.
