File PhotoNCRI - The Iranian regime judiciary in city of Qazvin announced the execution of three prisoners in the city's main prison, state-run Fars News Agency reported on Saturday. Two other prisoners received 10 and 30 lashes.

The prisoners who were hanged early morning on Saturday were identified by their first name as Mohsen, Yousef and Saeed. All prisoners had been arrested on drug related charges.

Despite claims of moderation by Hassan Rouhani, the regime’s president, there have been more executions over the past year compared with any other year in the past 25 years.

More than 700 have been executed in Iran during 2013, two thirds of which occurred during Rouhani’s tenure.

The executions in cities across Iran is being carried out to intimidate an angry and disillusioned society that the mullahs have no other way to contain.

The desire for change is pervasive in Iran, in particular among women, who are treated as second-class citizens, and youth (55 percent of Iranians are younger than 30), who have little hope that their desires will be met under the mullahs’ rule.
