A Baluch child was killed on December 24 in Saravan, southeast Sisran and Baluchestan Province.

Osman Bameri was transferring fuel on his motorcycle when he was shot and killed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which effectively controls local economic and military operations.

The city of Saravan lies 270 kilometers to the south of the provincial capital across the border with Pakistan.

Iranian security forces and the IRGC shoot and kill Baluch fuel traders with impunity.

The Iranian regime’s security forces and police have a history of shooting and killing civilians.

There are almost daily reports of police and border guards opening fire on Kurd border porters in western Iran and civilians carrying fuel in southeastern Iran.

The terms “fuel carrier” and “border porter” are an unfortunate consequence of 42 years of corruption and mismanagement under the Iranian regime which has resulted in a significant lack of job opportunities, especially for Iranians in northwestern and southeastern Iran.

An annual report by a human rights group said that at least 204 Iranian citizens were directly or indirectly killed or wounded by Iran’s state security forces in 2020. According to the report, at least 74 citizens were killed, including 36 kolbars, five fuel carriers, and 33 other citizens. The 2020 arbitrary shootings injured at least 130 people.
