Starlink will seek to be exempted from international sanctions on Iran in order to be able to provide Internet services to the nation’s population, SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk said in a tweet. 

Musk was responding to a Twitter user asking if the Starlink satellite system operated by SpaceX would be able to provide Internet to people in Iran. Earlier, Musk had said in a tweet that Starlink is active on all continents, including Antarctica.

Protests have erupted in Tehran after a 22-year-old woman died last week while in police custody for allegedly violating religious laws on how women dress.

Editor’s Note on seeking exemption from international sanctions by Elon Musk.

“Better late than never.
Fed up people of Iran have been on the streets all over Iran in masses and are being beaten and shot right this moment. Internet is already not available in some major cities where widespread demonstrations are taking place. Two years ago along with many other opposition figures I personally requested for this service in case of widespread demonstrations and Iranian opposition groups outside of Iran assured that they will pay for the service.
If you stand for freedom and human rights and a normal relationship with the Iranian people, whomever you are and wherever you live stand by them and provide any assistance you can offer.”
