International call for condemnation of shooting and killing innocent civilians
On Saturday, a number of people in Mahmoudabad, in the northern Province of Mazandaran, protested against confiscation of their lands by Khamenei’s military forces. They demanded their lands back. However, mullahs’ air force personal opened fire on unarmed civilians killing and wounding a number of them.
Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and other security forces have confiscated land belonging to residents for suppressive proposes and financial gains.
The mullahs’ air force personal refused to follow the direct of mullahs’ court order to return the property to their rightful owners.
The IRGC call the protesters thugs and hoodlums who attacked the air force’s barracks and thus the personal defended themselves, according to the state-run news agency, Fars. To avoid people’s angry reaction, mullahs’ officials claimed that the personal involved in the attack fired in the air and since the land was not level, people got shot!
The Iranian Resistance sincerely offers its condolences to the families of the victims and wishes quick recovery for those injured in Mahmoudabad’s incident and calls on the youths to pledge support and rush to help Mahmoudabad’s residents. The Iranian Resistance also calls on the UN Secretary General as well as UN Security Council and all international human rights organizations strongly condemn the Mahmoudabad’s shooting and killing of unarmed civilians.
