Iran - Regime Change Agents Hijack Economic Protests

Yesterday and today saw some small protests in Iran. They are probably the first stage of a large "regime change" operation run by the U.S. and Israel with the help of Iranian terrorist group.
Earlier this month the White House and the Zionist prepared for a new assault on Iran:
A delegation led by Israel's National Security Adviser met with senior American officials in the White House earlier this month for a joint discussion on strategy to counter Iran's aggression in the Middle East, a senior U.S. official confirmed to Haaretz.
Another report about the meeting quotes Israeli officials on the result:
"[T]he U.S. and Israel see eye to eye the different developments in the region and especially those that are connected to Iran. We reached at understandings regarding the strategy and the policy needed to counter Iran. Our understandings deal with the overall strategy but also with concrete goals, way of action and the means which need to be used to get obtain those goals."
This is probably a result of the above meeting:
Hundreds took to the streets of Iran’s second largest city of Mashad on Thursday to protest over high prices, shouting slogans against the government.
Videos posted on social media showed demonstrators in Mashad in northwest Iran, one of the holiest places in Shia Islam, chanting “death to (President Hassan) Rouhani” and “death to the dictator”.
The semi-official ILNA news agency and social media reported demonstrations in other cities in Razavi Khorasan Province, including Neyshabour and Kashmar.
A video of that protest in Mashad showed some 50 people chanting slogans with more bystander just milling around.
Protests against the (neo-)liberal economic policies of the Rohani government in Iran are justified. Official unemployment in Iran is above 12% and there is hardly any economic growth. The people in the streets are not the only ones who are dissatisfied with this:
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has repeatedly criticized the government’s economic record, said on Wednesday that the nation was struggling with “high prices, inflation and recession”, and asked officials to resolve the problems with determination....

Iranians in their millions have flooded the streets of the capital Tehran and other major cities to voice support for the Islamic Republic establishment. The mass rallies were held on the anniversary of the 2009 pro-Islamic Republic marches that put an end to the post-election turmoil back then. The protesters condemned some western country’s interference in Iran’s internal affairs. Back in 2009, the U-S and U-K played a role in inciting to violence the group of people who opposed the election results. However, the plot was foiled on December 30, 2009 when millions of Iranians from all walks of life staged rallies throughout the country in a show of support for the Islamic Republic.

Just like any other democratic society, Iranians are allowed to air their grievances through peaceful means. Just a day before mass pro-Islamic Republic rallies, a group of people took to streets in several cities to vent their frustration with the government’s economic policies. They protested against jumping prices of basic food products and some austerity measures included in the government’s budget proposal for the upcoming fiscal year. President Hassan Rouhani who won a second term in office during May election, pledged to curb inflation which rose due to years of western imposed sanctions on Iran over the country’s nuclear program. Despite the removal of nuclear-related sanctions following the implementation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Washington has kept hindering Tehran’s efforts to do business with foreign companies. And that has been a factor behind the country’s continuing economic problems.
