A 14-year-old girl was severely beaten on Friday in Esfahan by the Iranian regime’s paramilitary Bassij Forces, according to obtained reports.
Eyewitness accounts indicate that the teenage girl of Armenian origin was stopped by a group of Bassij suppressive agents as she was walking on Nazar Street in Esfahan in the morning hours. The agents insisted that she was not adequately veiled and sought to detain her.
The young girl, however, resisted, which provoked other youths to get involved to try to dissuade the agents from detaining the girl.
But, according to eyewitnesses, a State Security Forces (SSF) unit arrived on the scene to provide back up to the Bassij agents, who violently dispersed the population and detained the girl as they beat her.
