Various reports indicate that scores of Iranians have been killed because of the despotic theocratic Iranian regime’s crackdown on protests surging around their country.
Protests have mounted after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died in custody on September 16 after Iranian morality police detained her because her hijab was not tight enough.
The Iran Human Rights Group reported 92 people have been killed, 41 just on Friday. Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency admitted last week that “around 60” people had died while Amnesty International stated it had confirmed 53 deaths, including five women and at least five children.
The additional 41 deaths reported by IHR followed accusations that a Shiite police chief in the port city of Chabahar had raped a 15-year-old girl of the Baluch Sunni minority.
On Sunday, protesters targeted the headquarters of Kayhan, Iran’s daily newspaper, whose director is appointed by Iran supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, The Daily Mail reported.
On Monday, Khameini blamed the United States and Israel for the massive protests around his country, telling Iranian police students. “This rioting was planned. These riots and insecurities were designed by America and the Zionist regime, and their employees.”
In the very capital of the country, Tehran, students at Shahid Beheshti University yelled, “Don’t call it a protest, it’s a revolution now,” while women removed theur hijabs and burned them.
At Sharif University of Technology on Sunday, the first day of classes, roughly 200 students chanted “woman, life, freedom” and “students prefer death to humiliation,” the Mehr news agency reported, adding that the chants grew harsher among the fervent anti-government protesters, according to the BBC.
One young man, using the name Farid to preserve his anonymity, said he was alerted by his friend, a student at the university, “Please come save us. We are stuck here. They are shooting at us.” Farid arrived at the university only to see hundreds of students trapped by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.
“They had guns; they had paintball guns, they had batons,” Farid told CNN. “They were using gases… [that are] banned internationally… it was a war zone… there was blood everywhere.”

“This is far from over,” Farid stated. “We are not scared. We are outraged. We are furious. You know, these people think that we are the previous generation – that if they do this, we’re gonna just stop. We are not going to stop.”
