      Seyed Nader Safavi Mirmahaleh, the governor and head of Rezvanshahr Security Council, is responsible for ordering officers to open fire on protesters during Iran’s 2022-2023 nationwide protests.


      Shooting with Kalashnikov rifles, the repressive forces killed 3 individuals, Sasan Ghorbani, Yasin Jamalzadeh and Farzin Lotfi, in a demonstration on September 21st, 2022. They also injured several people, including a 13-year-old child named Erfan Shakuri.

The protests continued in various forms in different cities for over three months. According to reports by human rights organizations, at least 469, including 63 children and 32 women, have been killed by the law enforcement and security forces of the Islamic Republic.
