Badri Hosseini Khamenei, sister of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declares her support for the ongoing anti-government protests.

“I think it is appropriate now to declare that I oppose my brother’s actions and I express my sympathy with all mothers mourning the crimes of the Islamic Republic, from the time of Khomeini to the current era of the despotic caliphate of Ali Khamenei,” she writes in a letter shared on Twitter by her son, Mahmoud Moradkhani, according to Reuters.

Hosseini Khamenei, who lives in Iran, reportedly writes that the “Revolutionary Guards and mercenaries should lay down their weapons as soon as possible and join the people before it is too late.”
