Baloch protesters at the Haqabad border security checkpoint in Zahedan took over local Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps offices in the city on the 2nd day of demonstrations after a massacre of 37 fuel smugglers at the Iranian-Pakistani borders. The crowd torched police vehicles and occupied the local buildings, taking down the flag of the IRGC.
Protesters commemorated the Beirut explosion that killed hundreds of people in the city and began the anti-government protests. Thousands of demonstrators took part in the march to the Port where the blast occurred, condemning the government for its failure to handle the explosion and its aftermath.
Hundreds of healthcare workers gathered at the ministries of Labor and Health, as part of a strike called for by POEDIN (Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Employees), demanding more money to help deal with the pandemic instead of for funding the army and police with more and more unnecessary and repressive gear.
