200 killed by security forces and 10,000 arrested and detained in prison
Despite the clerical regime’s mobilization of its troops and opening fire on protesters, protests have continued in many cities. Women continue to lead the protests and inspire others to join.
protests in Iran were especially intense in Yazd, with chants of “We are all Mahsa! We will fight till the end!” and “Iranians would rather die than live in disgrace!”. Mahsa was a young Kurdish woman who was violently arrested on Tuesday, September 13. She died at 3.40 p.m. Friday, September 16, 2022. Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, 22, from Saqqez, Iranian Kurdistan, had traveled to Tehran to visit her relatives in the capital. Mahsa (Zhina) Amini and her brother, Kiarash, were coming out of the Haqqani Metro Station when Mahsa was arrested by the so-called “Moral Police” or the Guidance Patrol.
Eyewitnesses said the state agents brutalized Mahsa (Zhina) Amini in the SSF vehicle and in the Moral Police station on Vozara Avenue.
Only two hours after the arrest, she went into a coma. She was taken to Kasra Hospital, where doctors said she had suffered a heart stroke and brain hemorrhage. The heavy blows to her head fractured her skull.
On the 11th day of Iran protests, students marched and held a rally at Tarbiat Modarres University in Tehran. They demanded the release of detained students and called for others to join the nationwide protests. Students of Tehran University launched a night rally that evolved into a large demonstration with participants chanting: “We will fight and take back Iran!”
