Nazar and the semi-official Ilna news agency reported that there were also smaller protests on Thursday in Neyshabour, Kashmar, Yazd and Shahroud.
The "no to high prices" demonstration raised "death to the dictator" slogans, referring to the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. The protesters also chanted, "We don't want the Islamic Republic", "death or freedom", "free all political prisoners", "we are going to take back our country".
Iran's state-run IRNA news agency quoted Mohammad Rahim Norouzian, the Mashhad governor, as saying there was an illegal "No To High Prices" gathering in the city.
"A few of them were temporarily arrested", Hamedani said, without elaborating on the exact figure.
The security forces charged at the people but the people resisted and confronted them.
Such mass protests without police permission are unusual in Iran and those taking part face arrest. A courageous woman in Abadan (southwestern Iran) turned the city's Friday prayer into a scene of protest against the regime's corruption. "As President Trump has said, the longest-suffering victims of Iran's leaders are Iran's own people", said State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.
Iran cities hit by anti-government protests
Videos published by a small reformist media group, Nazar, showed people in Mashhad chanting "Death to Rouhani". After the 2009 election, protesters gathered in the streets to challenge what they believed was a fraudulent vote that returned hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a new term.
There is also anger at Iran's interventions overseas.
Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri, a close Rouhani ally, suggested that hard-line conservative opponents of the president might have triggered the protests.
Rouhani's leading achievement, a 2015 deal with world powers that curbed Iran's disputed nuclear program in return for a lifting of most worldwide sanctions, has yet to bring the broad economic benefits the government says are coming.
Addressing a gathering in Tehran Dec. 29, Iranian First Vice-President Es'haq Jahangiri said all indexes of the economy are in a proper situation, but admitted that the prices of some products have recently increased and it is the government's duty to correct the prices.
Jahangiri also said, to resolve economic problems, the Iranian government needs to establish worldwide communications with the world and to take advantage of its current domestic capacities.
