Seven protestors have been killed after suppressive forces attacked demonstrations in southwestern Iran. According to obtained reports, protests were triggered on Saturday and continued for three days in the city of Dehdez situated an hour and a half from Ahvaz in Khuzestan province.
Residents of Dehdez were protesting against difficulties and services shortfalls in Khuzestan. Clashes broke out when the Iranian regime’s State Security Forces (SSF) attacked protestors. Seven reportedly lost their lives as a result of the crackdown.
The demonstrators fled the brutal suppression by taking refuge in nearby villages. Fearing a further rise in protests, suppressive forces have established an armed presence in the region.
