This comes as the broad movement that erupted following the killing of the young woman, Mahsa Amini, continues in mid-September, after she was arrested by the religious police despite the violent repression by the security forces.
Her death has since ignited anger over several issues, including the restrictions imposed on personal freedoms and strict rules regarding women’s clothing, as well as the living and economic crisis that Iranians suffer from, not to mention the strict laws imposed by the regime and its political and religious composition in general.
Meanwhile, the security forces violently confronted the protesters, killing dozens of them, and arresting hundreds.
The Human Rights Activists News Agency (Hrana) announced that about 400 demonstrators were killed, including 47 minors.
At least 14,170 people, including 392 students, were arrested in those protests that took place in 136 cities and towns and 134 universities.
