Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The regime still can always turn to the Revolutionary Guards who possess modern military equipment.  I haven't seen any reports they have been deployed to the streets.  I don't know if they are trained in crowd control, but I doubt it.  Sending them is would be a big, big step and really escalate the situation.
