NCRI - Another group of 9 prisoners were hanged on Monday in a prison in southeastern city of Ahvaz raising the number of execution to 79 in past three weeks.

The victims who had been all accused of drug smuggling were identified by their initials: L.B., M.T., A.A., H.K., A.Kh, M.J., A.Q., M.Q, and another M.Q.

The Iranian regime's hangmen executed a group of 11 prisoners including a woman in Ghezal Hesar prison in city of Karaj on Friday evening, May 9.

The growing trend of executions in cities across Iran demonstrates the fright of the mullahs’ regime from an uprising by the Iranian people who are under extreme pressures. This fear has been publicly expressed by the regime's officials and in reports by state-run news media.

Ebtekar daily wrote on May 10: “Everyone is talking about the low threshold of tolerance in the society and warns about the perils of such a state… the daily realities around us do confirm this danger… any wrong move in this circumstance is like a spark in the gunpowder depot.”

Since last year's sham presidential election that Hassan Rouhani assumed office over 700 prisoners have been executed.
