    قیام سیاهکل

    (Wikipedia) - Siahkal incident

    The Siahkal incident (Persian: قیام سیاهکل) was a guerrilla operation against Pahlavi government organized by Iranian People''s Fadaee Guerrillas that happened near Siahkal town in Gilan on February 8, 1971. The guerrillas attacked a gendarmerie post at Siahkal on the Caspian Sea, killing three policemen and freeing two previously arrested guerrillas.

    Thirteen men were convicted and executed for the incident, including two who were in prison at the time.

    The event marks the beginning of the guerrilla era in Iran for most historians — an era which ended with the Islamic Revolution.
