Iran, Aug. 10, 2019 - Sanctions, economic pressures, and internal unrest against the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran is biting and pushing the clerical regime toward its demise. This, according to some confidential internal reports, is affecting the moral of the Iranian forces and some officials driving them to quit, defect, or even escape the country.
To tackle this problem, and to prop up the eroding morals of the regime’s lower ranks, the regime is resorting to more repressive measures including more executions, arrests, tortures and even killing porters in cold blood.
Just this last Wednesday, five more prisoners were hanged in only one day in the notorious Gohardasht (Rajaie-Shahr) Prison, in the city of Karaj, northwest of Tehran. The names of those executed were announced as Mohammad-Reza Shekari, Yousof Zakeri, Majid Arabali, Hossein Panjeh-Maryam, and Bahram Tork.
These prisoners, along with a number of other prisoners, had been moved to the solitary confinement prior to their executions. The regime later returned some of these prisoners back to their cells. The regime usually moves prisoners who are listed to be hanged soon, to a dungeon called solitary confinement where they have to count minutes and hours to have a hangman taking them to the gallows.

In another repressive measure, a young load carrier (porter) was shot and injured on Friday by the border patrols near the city of Sardasht, close to western borders of Iran.
The victim was identified as “Younes Pirooti” resident of a village close to the city of Sardasht. Younes was rushed to the hospital with the help of his friends and relatives.
On the same day another group of porters in Khoy district, also west of Iran, were targeted by border patrols and IRGC forces. One young porter who was identified as “Naji Abu-Bakri” was severely injured. The bullet entered his upper thigh cutting one of his main arteries causing him to lose lots of blood. He was also rushed to a hospital nearby in the city of Urmia.
Similarly, on Thursday, repressive and terrorist-designated Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) forces in Marivan area, near “Famishleh” township opened fire at another group of load carriers. This incident resulted in the immediate death of a 16-year-old porter identified as “Esmaiel Savojinejad.” His body was sent to a hospital in Marivan.
Killing and wounding of suffering and poverty-stricken porters did not end here. On Wednesday night, a night before the above cold-blooded murder by the IRGC mercenaries, another porter identified as “Shahab” from the city of Sardasht was wounded during a pursue by the IRGC forces. He fell down from a cliff breaking his leg.
Turning the calendar page back to Sunday, Aug 4th, IRGC forces who were stationed outside the city of Piranshahr, also western Iran, confronted and opened fire at another group of porters carrying merchandise on their backs through rough mountainous paths. As a result, two young Kurdish porters by the names of “Rashid Khandani” and “Khalil Qaderi” were injured.
