Ahwaz repression  mounting

Iranian security forces have assaulted Ahwazi demonstrators, a video obtained by the Baghdad Post has shown.

The protesters took to street to demand their money, deposited at banks, back.

This comes as there are growing fear among depositors there after multiple banks suddenly declared bankruptcy.

The Ahwazi citizens, who held their protest in the city of al-Qunaitra, called on government to come forth with guarantees for them to be able to claw bank their money.

At the protests, security forces molested the demonstrators, preventing them from marching on the headquarters of the city's council. 

The demonstrators said they consider the government as accomplice in this crime, asserting it siphoned off their money.
