Iranian students seen refusing to trample US, Israeli flags

Students at an Iranian university are filmed this morning refusing to trample an American and an Israeli flag painted on the floor.

The footage is shared on social media accounts supportive of the anti-regime protests of the past two days.

Stepping on flags of countries despised by the Iranian regime is a common pro-regime ritual in the Islamic Republic. It is not immediately clear if the apparent refusal to do so is a sign of support for the flags or the nations they represent, or simply an act of resistance against a sign of fealty to the regime in Tehran.
