IRGC forces launch swoop on activists in Ahwaz

New arrests in Ahwaz
Iran intelligence forces have arrested several activists in the city of Ahwaz, sources said Friday.

IRGC intelligence forces stormed al-Malashia neighborhood west of Ahwaz, arresting a number of activists and leading them to unknown destinations, they added.

The Iranian repressive forces cordoned off the houses of the activists and closed the entrances and exits of the neighborhood to prevent local residents from resisting the brutal arrests.

Activist and journalist Mohammed Majid al-Ahwazi declared on his twitter account that his cousin Kazim bin Saleh al-Shrida was arrested.

These ruthless arrests are made to intimidate families of the activists.
