Iran, December 1, 2019—In an interview on state TV aired on Sunday, December 1, Leila Vatheghi, governor of Ghale Hasan Khan (Qods city), located west of Tehran, acknowledged ordering security forces to shoot and kill protesters. “I had ordered security forces to shoot and kill anyone who entered through the gates of the governor’s building,” she said. Reports indicate security forces opened fire on protesters based on Vatheghi’s orders, killing and injuring dozens. International law bans opening fire on unarmed protesters. The United Nations Human Rights Office issued a statement on November 19 expressing grave concerns over the use of live ammunition by the Iranian regime’s security forces against protesters and called on regime officials to refrain from resorting to the use of force.

The moribund regime sheds blood. 1000-plus martyrs. But this only strengthens young ppl’s resolve to rise up against religious fascism. #UNSC must punish & prosecute the mullahs for crime against humanity. Inaction emboldens more slaughter & is complicity in crime.#IranProtests— Mohammad Mohaddessin (@Mohaddessin) December 4, 2019

The United States' Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY), responded to the Iran regime's Foreign Minister, who shamelessly accused the U.S. of killing Iranian citizens. Mr. Zeldin wrote on Twitter:
Wrong. Your team right now is executing your own innocent citizens, putting bullets in their heads ONLY bc they peacefully disagree w/you. Your regime isn’t TOUGH, HONEST, LEGITIMATE or COURAGEOUS. Iranians deserve a far better future than a nation run by terrorist cowardly scum. https://t.co/Bai1kPgwqx— Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) December 3, 2019
