The unseen pictures of 1953 coup d’état

At first the coup appeared to be a failure when, on the night of 15–16 August, Imperial Guard Colonel Nematollah Nassiri was arrested while attempting to arrest Mosaddegh. The Shah fled the country the next day. On 19 August, a pro-Shah mob paid by the CIA marched on Mosaddegh’s residence. According to the CIA’s declassified documents and records, some of the most feared mobsters in Tehran were hired by the CIA to stage pro-Shah riots on 19 August. Other CIA-paid men were brought into Tehran in buses and trucks, and took over the streets of the city.Between 300 and 800 people were killed because of the conflict. Mosaddegh was arrested, tried and convicted of treason by the Shah’s military court. On 21 December 1953, he was sentenced to three years in jail, then placed under house arrest for the remainder of his life. Other Mosaddegh supporters were imprisoned, and several received the death penalty.



  1. ملتی که همیشه در بدبختی زندگی کرده.همیشه متملق و ذلیل زندگی کرده ،هنوز بعد از 63 سال افسوس از مصدق می خورد بدون آنکه بداند،”مصدق” هم چیزی کمتر از شاه نداشت.در 69 سال آینده هم از این دوران افسوس خواهد خورد.

  2. اگر انصاف باشد شریف ترین سیاست پیشه در تایخ معاصر همانا ایشان است که از ابتدا تا آخر برانسان بودن و امنت داری ایستاد و جان و همه را فدا کرد .


      مصدق برابر با امیر کبیر بود مردی وطن پرست وشجاع وایران ازاین مردان کم دارد
