Demonstrators braved stormy weather Tuesday to demonstrate against the Iranian regime outside Jerusalem’s Old City.

Among the protestors was Nada Amin, an Iranian journalist and human rights activist who was granted entrance to Israel on humanitarian grounds while fleeing the Iranian regime in August and is currently seeking permanent residency.

“We came here to protest the Iranian regime, I am Iranian and I want a free Iran,” Amin told told Tazpit Press Service (TPS).

“It’s a protest against Iran’s dictatorial regime that is killing and oppressing people. We want a free Iran, we don’t want [Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei , we don’t want an Islamic republic. Free Iran. Death to Khamenei,” she stated.

This protest joined demonstrations of support at various capitals throughout the globe.

Some 21 people are believed to have been killed in several days of anti-regime protests throughout Iran.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the protesters “brave” and “heroic,” saying in a video posted to YouTube on Monday that the protesters sought freedom, justice and “the basic liberties that have been denied to them for decades.”

He criticized the Iranian regime’s response to the protests and chided European governments for watching “in silence” as the protests turn violent.
