Iran protests 2019, day 22: More reports of over 1,000 killed by the regime

Reporting by PMOI/MEK

Iran, December 6, 2019—In its latest report covering the November uprising throughout Iran, the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is confirming the names of 320 protesters killed by the mullahs’ regime during the unprecedented November 2019 uprising. The nationwide protests have spread to at least 189 cities and towns and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the parent coalition of the MEK, has tallied the number of protesters killed reaching 1,029 up to the publication of this report.

The deadly crackdown measures imposed by the mullahs’ regime has also left over 4,000 injured and at least 12,000 detainees in the regime's prisons. Concerns are escalating over their fate as they are most certainly placed under torture to obtain coerced confessions. Furthermore, there are reports of the number of detained protesters escalating throughout Iran.

In a meeting with representatives of the United Nations Security Council Permanent Members, U.S. President Donald Trump called for the global body to confront threats facing today’s world. “The Council must take action to confront these and other dangers facing the world. That also includes the behavior of the Iranian regime, which has killed hundreds and hundreds of people in a very short period of time. They’re killing protestors.  They turned down their Internet system. People aren’t hearing what’s going on,” he said.

“I would like to see the media get involved in that and go in and see what’s happening, because it’s not a good situation. It’s a horrible situation. It’s something that is going to be a big scandal throughout the world very soon. They’re killing a lot of people. And they’re arresting thousands of their own citizens in a brutal crackdown in recent weeks because they’re protesting. And I think the media should get involved in that. I don’t know that they will because they have their own reasons, but the media should absolutely get involved in that.

“America will always stand with the Iranian people in their righteous struggle for freedom.  They’re not being treated properly.  All of that money is being wasted on weapons and on other things, and they’re not treating their people properly.  And there are people in — all over the country, they’re rioting and they’re protesting, and they’re very unhappy.”

Brian Hook, the U.S. Special Representative on Iran, held a conference on Thursday, December 5, at the State Department expressing new concerns over the mullahs’ brutal crackdown in Iran. “We have seen reports of many hundreds more killed in and around Tehran," he said. "And, as the truth is trickling out of Iran, it appears the regime could have murdered over 1,000 Iranian citizens since the protests began.” The dead include 13- and 14-year-old children, Hook added.

 

The Iranian regime has after three weeks refused to provide any numbers of those killed, injured and arrested, raising even more suspicion about their concerns. Historically, the mullahs’ cloak their crackdown and human rights violations inside Iran, support for terrorism abroad and rampant corruption that has left the Iranian people in utter poverty. Various regime officials are calling for the publication of these numbers, resulting in an ongoing internal dispute and quarrel as various factions are blaming each other for the ruthless crackdown, and the resulting outcry both inside Iran and across the globe.
