Iran: Dozens of people were killed and many injured by firing on protesters

Iranian security forces opened fire on protesters after Friday prayers in Sistan. According to activists, dozens of people have been killed and injured in recent attacks by Iranian forces.

According to the news agency, protests were again held in some areas in Iran on Friday night, a group of protesters held demonstrations in Karaj in the west of the capital at night and the protesters shouted slogans against the Iranian government.

It should be noted that the Iranian government has stepped up its crackdown on the protests that began on September 16 after the death of young woman Mehsa Amini.

Demonstrators this week called for nationwide demonstrations in solidarity with Kurdistan province. Along with Sistan, Kurdistan has also been the worst hit in the security crackdown.

On the other hand, the human rights organization said that Iranian security forces have killed at least 416 people, including 51 children and 27 women, since the protests began.

This number includes 126 people killed in Sistan and 48 people killed in Kurdistan. More than 90 people were killed in a shooting in Zahedan on September 30, which protesters dubbed “Bloody Friday”.
