Select Language:

According to the latest reports at least 1,500 protesters have been killed during a three-day crackdown against November Iran protests in different provinces.

At least 400 have been killed in Tehran, 320 in Kermanshah, 270 in Fars, 240 in Khuzestan, 120 in Isfahan, and 100 in Alborz (Karaj).

According to eyewitnesses, hundreds of bodies were taken to Namazi hospital in Shiraz during the uprising. These have not been included in the death toll of Iran protests and are being investigated.

One month after the nationwide protests the Iranian regime has yet to publish the death toll of Iran protests and the number of protesters killed by security forces.

Fearing domestic and international consequences over its crime against humanity, the regime is has refused to publish the number of those arrested and imprisoned as well.

Iranian security forces are regularly inspecting hospitals, rounding up injured protesters and the bodies of the dead. They also refrain from handing over the dead bodies to the families and only do so on the condition that they do not hold a funeral and bury their loved ones in silence and solitude.

The bodies of many slain protesters were snatched from hospitals or streets and buried in unknown locations.

There are also horrific reports and footage of dead bodies being found in rivers and near dams, especially close to Ahvaz, southwest of Iran.
