24 Executions in the Past Week, Including Two Underage Teenagers
Khamenei’s criminals hanged six prisoners on Tuesday, November 28, including Eghbal Fathollahi, Mohsen Amiri, and Hamid Bakhshi in Qezel Hesar Prison, and Shahram Mohammadbeygi, a third-place finisher in Asian desert running, along with two other prisoners in Ilam.
On Sunday, November 26, five prisoners were also executed, including two brothers named Farshid and Farshad Pirhayati along with another prisoner named Asghar Souri in Nehavand Prison, Reza Rastkhiz in Shiraz Central Prison, and a Baluch teenager named Adel Damani in Chabahar Prison who was under the age of 18 when he was arrested.
On Saturday, November 25, in addition to political prisoner Ali Saber Motlaq, another prisoner named Mohsen Sedaqat was hanged in Rasht Prison, and on Friday, November 24, a 17-year-old named Hamid Reza Azari was executed in Sabzevar Prison, and another prisoner named Ahmad Heydari was executed in Khorramabad Central Prison at the hands of Khamenei’s executioners.
As a result, the number of executions recorded in the past seven days has reached 24. Two of the executed prisoners, Adel Damani and Ahmad Heydari, were minors under the age of 18.
Khamenei is desperately trying to prevent the explosion of popular anger and uprisings by executing and killing inside the country and warmongering in the region. But these crimes only make the situation more explosive and intensify the anger and hatred of the people against the regime. The Iranian Resistance calls for immediate action by the United Nations to save the lives of death-row prisoners and for the International Fact-Finding Commission to visit Iran’s prisons and talk to prisoners.
