      Description
      Mohammad Alizamani as the Commander of Special Unit in Kurdistan Province, is responsible for ordering the use of deadly weapons against protesters by the forces under his command during the 2022-2023 protests.

      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 551people, with a minimum of 68 of them being children.
