According to reports, to better control the suppression of protesters, the Bassij Organization has been expanded and separated from the Revolutionary Guards Corps. It will be directly under the control of Khamenei. Until now, the Bassij Organization was a unit of the IRGC and its commander was appointed by the commander in chief. In this new organizational chart, the Bassij works parallel to the IRGC and will work under the direct supervision of Khamenei like the IRGC.
