The Iranian regime hangmen executed two prisoners on Saturday in central prison of city of Zahedan in southeast Iran.

The prisoners who were 30 and 34 years old had served two years in Prison. They had been transferred to solitary confinement on Thursday.

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.
