The deputy head of the Iranian Martyr’s Foundation said that there was no difference between Iranian and Fatemiyoun martyrs, adding that the organization is working with the Property Registration Organization to provide conditions for families of fighters who die in Iran’s proxy wars to receive free property. He noted that the pursuit was ordered by Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader.

In 2014 Iran’s terrorist designated Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) offered attractive financial benefits to the impoverished Afghan refugees in Iran and formed the Fatemiyoun Brigade to support Bashar al-Assad’s government in crushing the uprising of Syrian people.

According to some reports, more than 2,000 Fatemiyoun fighters were killed in the Syrian war. According to Human Rights Watch, Liwa Fatemiyoun has recruited child soldiers, some of whom were as young as 14.

The Afghans are promised Iranian citizenship and salaries of $500–$800 per month in return for fighting. Many are refugees and some criminals who choose recruitment over imprisonment or deportation. After completing their service, many ex-Liwa Fatemiyoun fighters were frustrated that the Iranian government proved slow in fulfilling all their demands; most importantly, fighters struggled to secure the promised benefits such as salaries, housing, and jobs due to Iran’s difficult economic situation. The families of fallen fighters have also struggled to secure benefits and visas.

It appears that the properties promised to these fighters will be from the one million houses that the government promised to build for Iran’s struggling population to attract votes during the last elections.

The Islamic Republic strives to export its ideology of violence, repression and killing at any cost, including the lives of helpless Afghan refugees looking for shelter.

With every advice of the supreme leader, a series of rent-seeking, corruption and destruction takes shape and burdens the already suffering lives of the Iranian people.
