Rampant public executions in Iran

Ruthless Mullah regime of Iran has hanged 18 convicts across several cities over the past three days.

One day earlier, another convict was publicly executed in Qazvin province in addition to three prisoners at Qezel Hesar prison.

Also, eight prisoners have been hanged at Rasht and Orumiyeh and Shahrood and Hamedan prison, two of them were women, on Saturday.

This came as the repressive Mullah regime is continuing its mass arrests across the country under false pretences.

Authorities arrested 34 girls in Ahwaz along with 14 others in Fars province.

These arrests are made to intimidate the people and forestall any protests that may be triggered by deep social grievances witnessed by all factions of the society there.
