According to the Iranian Resistance, protests in Iran have spread to more than 117 cities in Iran. At least 200 protesters have been killed by security forces. The numbers are growing fast. Due to the internet shut down by the Iranian regime, the number of videos and reports coming from Iran are limited but what is clear is that the regime has started a brutal crackdown against protesters.
Most protesters who were shot and killed by security forces are young and many have been shot in the head and chest. The regime is trying to hide the extent of its killings. In many cases, security forces have refused to hand over the bodies of the protesters to their families. They are instead buried in unknown locations.
