      Description

      Mohammad Ghanbari, commander of the security forces of Sistan and Baluchestan, is responsible for the violation of the right to life through commanding his units to shoot and injure protestors.

      For instance, on February 24th, 2023, during a protest in Zahedan, security forces attacked a member of staff of Makki Mosque, Morteza Azarnoush (Aalizehi). After heavy beating, security forces arrested him.

      The 2022-23 protests began following the death of Mahsa (Gina) Amini on September 13, 2022, in the detention of the morality police of the Islamic Republic. These protests quickly spread across the country and are remembered as the largest revolutionary uprising against the government since the establishment of the Islamic Republic. The Iranian government responded to these protests with deadly violence.

      According to human rights organizations, the security forces of the Islamic Republic have killed at least 551 people, with a minimum of 68 of them being children.
