The criminal agents of Khamenei executed the uprising prisoner, Milad Zohrehvand, 21, a brave son of the people of Malayer, secretly and without informing his family, in Hamedan Central Prison on Thursday, November 23.

Milad was wounded and arrested by the shooting of the guards during the protests of the people of Malayer on October 27, 2022. The regime’s judiciary sentenced him to death for the death of a member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps named Ali Nazari, and the mullahs’ Supreme Court upheld his death sentence.

In the wake of this criminal execution and in fear of popular protests, the suppression forces have been deployed in various parts of Malayer since this morning.

At the same time, eight other prisoners were hanged on November 22 and 23. On November 23, Rasoul Gorgij and Shahmorad Davoudi were executed in Mashhad, and on November 22, Moslem Jamshidi, Mohammad Andishgo, and two other prisoners in Qezel Hesar prison, Ebrahim Zamahriz in Tabriz, and another prisoner named Reza were executed.

With these executions, Khamenei exposes both the brutality of the regime and its fear of the volcano of popular anger. However, these crimes only make the will of the people and the rebellious youth more determined to overthrow.

The Iranian Resistance calls on the United Nations, the European Union, and member states to take urgent action to stop the killing machine of this regime and save the lives of death-row prisoners. The mullahs’ regime must be expelled from the international community and its leaders, especially Khamenei, Raisi, and Eje’i, must be brought to justice for crimes against humanity.
