has been sent a five-word warning by the country’s leading resistance group following the death of President Ebrahim Raisi, which has been dubbed an “irreparable blow” to the oppressive regime.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi died in a helicopter crash Sunday near the border of .

The aircraft was carrying Raisi as well as the foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, and six other passengers and crew.

Following the death of Raisi, Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said: “This represents a monumental and irreparable strategic blow to the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the entire regime, notorious for its executions and massacres.

“It will trigger a series of repercussions and crises within theocratic tyranny.” It will “spur rebellious youths into action,” she added speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk.

Rajavi added: “The curse of mothers and those seeking justice for the executed, along with the damnation of the Iranian people and history, mark the legacy of Ebrahim Raisi, the notorious perpetrator of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners.”

As Deputy Prosecutor of Tehran during that time, he sent thousands of MEK members to death in 1988 alone.

Due to his brutal approach to women-led protests and repression of human rights, hundreds of protesters have been killed under the regime in recent years.

Raisi’s dark record of human rights violations and his cruelty are well known and the NCRI resistance group cites this as the main reason he was seen as a potential successor to the 85-year-old Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Since 1979, Iran has been ruled by an oppressive regime with the religious Supreme Leader overseeing all aspects of Iranian life.

The death of Mahsa Amini – who in 2022 was killed in police custody for not wearing a headscarf – has caused protests to erupt across the country, as women and those standing in solidarity with them face the increasing threat of arrest, physical abuse and death.

At least 767 Iranians were executed in the year ending March 2024, according to the Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) with some of them being public executions.

Under the oppressive regime, the Iranian people face execution for minor drug offences as well as being homosexual.
