Persia News Agency - BREAKING NEWS: Shah Hassan announced "Arabian Campaign"
On the eve of the Christian New Year, Shah Hassan gave a speech regarding the recent turmoil in Jebal Shammar and the declaration of war by the Arabian Kingdoms.
"Citizens of Persia! It is with great delight that I announce to you my plans, which I call, the Arabian Campaign. The Arabs of Jebal Shammar are obviously too savage and barbaric to manage themselves, so it looks like we will have to step in and civilize those animals. But of course, we can't get there without passing through the Arabian Kingdoms first, so we will have to conquer them too. This shouldn't be a problem since that traitorous dog Khalfan has already declared war on our sovereign nation already. After marching through his kingdom and removing that sorry excuse for a ruler, we will invade and attempt to civilize the Arabs of Jebal Shammar. and if things go our way, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that we will stamp out Za'im's government in the Southern Arabian peninsula as well, and finally restore Persian rule to the Arabian peninsula after so long. Hopefully, we will be able to civilize these savages, but if not, I fear we may have to turn to the Final Solution: the extermination of the Arab race!" said Shah Hassan, after which he turned around and re-entered his palace.
There were cries of booing from the crowd, but anyone showing contempt was brutally beat by the palace guards, now replaced by Hassan's fascist supporters.
The military resistance in the Eastern provinces of Persia has also proved successful, and are now marching southward to get aid from the Kingdom of Hurraq before marching on Tehran. The leader of the resistance, Prince Ardeshir gave comments on Hassan's speech and the progress of the Afsharid Persian Military in the Eastern Province:
"I hope to God that we can be rid of my brother's rule before he carries out such idiotic plans. These will only bring about the destruct of our tumultuous nation. Our resistance has so far been successful, and we will start our march towards Tehran as soon as we gather some aid from the Hurraqi government, who have been very generous to us, as have the Kurds. May God protect us all"

Hi and Welcome to the Middle East!
(I know things haven't been very active over the last week or two, but i’ve been dying to do this for a while and i haven’t had time until now.)
Al-Jazira - Military Coup in Jebal Shammar, Government Ministers and President Al-Rashid Arrested, Al-Hussan Declares Provisional Government
(Here’s a little something to set the mood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaiuD6AK-To)
On the Morning of January 10th, the Armed Forces of Jebal Shammar staged a coup d'état, taking over key buildings, infrastructure and strategic points in and around the capital city of Ha'il. We speculate that this event was directly provoked by President Al-Rashid ordering the mobilization of the National Guard to aid police in suppressing the ever growing protests throughout the country, and rumours of talks toward the Fascist Persian Shah over a possible alliance in exchange for economic concessions and Jebal Shammar's collaboration with its "Arab Campaign" in exchange for continued peace.
Gunfire has been reported on the ground throughout the capital as soldiers engage in skirmishes with both police and National Guardsmen loyal to the government. Many National Guardsmen were disarmed and detained while in their barracks, while some even sided with the military in its takeover. In what seems to be a well-planned and executed strike, the Military carried out its operation, codenamed "Operation Fatherland Shield" to seize control of the Jebal Shammarian government, storming the parliament building by the mid afternoon. The city is swarming with soldiers, trucks, tanks, and other armoured fighting vehicles which have set up barricades and taken control over transportation and communication systems, airports, railroads, and other places within Ha'il. Martial Law has also been enacted, with citizens ordered off the streets and into their homes, that this operation is being undertaken for the protection of the nation and the safety of its people, and for the desire to see little bloodshed and a return to order. Media installations and independent journalists have also faced arrest and detention, not being allowed to leave their current locations or broadcast freely. The constitution as been suspended, with power now resting on emergency authority by decree of the military
Reports have also come in regarding similar events unfolding in every major town and city across the country, as military personnel work to take over strategic points and buildings, and hoisting flags of the Jebali Arab Nationalist Party (JANP). Such flags have also been seen across the capital, being trapped on buildings, flown on flag polls after the national flag had been removed, and being carried by soldiers themselves. Many officials have been reported to be missing, possibly making their escape from the capital itself and from the country.
With the military continuing to pacify much of the country, extending its reach beyond its military bases and key cities, six high ranking military officials, heading an Junta known as the Provisional Revolutionary Committee (PRC), with Khaled Al-Hussan, a former general in the military, heading the Committee. In a fiery speech made over the national broadcasting system, Al-Hussan declared the “old regime” of Yasir Al-Rashid to have been “thrown into the dustbin of history by our glorious revolution”, further stating that the will of the people to be on the side of the “defenders of the nation, seeking to free our people from the yoke of corruption and betrayal.”
Loud cheers were heard across the city, as soldiers, hearing Al-Hussan’s speech over loudspeakers, celebrated, chanting Party slogans and Al-Hussan’s name repeatedly. Al-Hussan also declared that “Jebal Shammar will not tolerate any collusion with the Person barbarians, nor will the aggression of the illegitimate Shah Hassan towards the Arab people go unanswered.” Furthermore, he stated that normal functions of democracy will also be temporarily suspended, with himself assuming emergency power until the many crises facing the nation have been resolved. He declared his intentions to “restore justice, order, freedom, secular government, and the pride and honour of our great Arab nation, which can only be done with the removal of Al-Rashid, a man we all trusted to deliver us to an era of prosperity.” He linked Al-Rashid’s government with violent Islamists and Jihadists within the country (mainly referring to the Islamic Movement of Jebal Shammar), who seek to bring, “not the grace of Allah, but chaos, destruction, and betrayal to our Arab nation.” He also stated his willing to work with his “Arab brothers and sisters” across the Middle East, calling for a united front and military co-operation in repelling aggression on the part of the Fascist Shah of Afsharid Persia, and to foster peace, brotherhood, and unity among all Arab people. He also added that his government seeks co-operation of the Kurdish people, which he stated “although not related by blood, out two great people’s have stood by one another in friendship throughout histroy. Such loyalty among friends must be renewed, and with the removal of the treacherous Al-Rashid, our people’s will stand strong in the face of our enemies.” He concluded his speech by saying that the former President will be held under detention inside a military detention centre until a fair trial can be arranged for the prosecution of his crimes against the people and the nation. Repeating slogans of his party, he concluded his broadcast.
With much of the government either under arrest, a combination of military men and JANP officials and activists have taken on the burden of governing the country. As most of their leaders and high-ranking members arrested, Al-Rashid’s party, the Guardians of the Republic, has been outlawed along with the Islamic Movement for their quest of destruction and corruption in the face of the welfare of the JEbali Arab people.
In response to the seizure of power, Abdullah Akbar of the IMJS, who was not in Ha’il at the time, has released a statement calling for Jihad against the “infidel provisional government of Al-Hussan, which has no fear of the Lord in their hearts.” With thousands of members, the Islamic Movement is speculated to have hoarded weapons and explosives with terrorist cells and hidden locations both in urban and mountainous parts of the country.
Many now watch as events inside Jebal Shammar continue to unfold…
Persia News Agency - BREAKING NEWS: Shah Hassan ousted!
This morning, Prince Ardeshir and his supporters, mainly from the Afsharid Persian Armed Forces reached Tehran and led a coup that ousted his brother Shah Hassan. The army was able to take Tehran easily, as they were met with very little resistance. The people of Tehran fully supported and even aided the Prince and his army in the fight against his Fascist brother. There was some intense battles at first between the Army and the Fascist forces, but the tide was quickly turned as the Fascist forces were outnumbered and spread thin. The police, who were previously under command of the Fascists, also defected to Prince Ardeshir's aid when they saw the army.
Within hours, the Grand Palace was stormed and Shah Hassan was captured. There are reports that he would not surrender even when his brother's forces had entered the Palace, but Ardeshir ordered that he not be killed, and captured alive instead, for he could not bear to be the murderer of his brother, no matter how evil he may have become.
After the coup, the Prince officially declared himself Shah, and said that formal coronation would be held later.
"My People! I have come to free our nation of the shackles of oppression that my brother had brought upon this nation, and to restore the honor that was lost! I announce myself, Ardeshir Shah! The 14th Shah of the Afsharid Dynasty of Persia!" Claimed the young Shah, as the crowd outside the palace cheered.
"I also wish to announce the cancellation of my brother's 'Arabian Campaign'. We are not a warmongering nation, and do not wish to rid the region of our Arab neighbors, but instead, to form strong alliances that will help boost the stability of the region! My government will also work hard to restore power to the Middle East Triple Alliance that was created by my late father, may he rest in peace."
Many arrests were made throughout the day of members in the Fascist Party as the capital was purged for its members. The Parliament was also stormed and its members arrested until further notice. Shah Hassan himself has been imprisoned in the Palace until further notice.
Despite the fall of the fascist government in Tehran, Fascist forces in the far Western provinces have still not given up the resistance.
"We will bring glory to our nation, and purify the region, with or without the help of the ruling dynasty! And we will also turn on those who stand in our way, be it the Afsharid Royal Family themselves." said an officer of the Persian Fascist Party on the Fascist Party's own News Channel.
We are glad to see a legitimate Shah re-claim the power in our country, and are hopeful that he will soon usher in a new era of peace and glory for our beloved nation.
