According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, at least 83 people have been killed in the nationwide protests sparked by the police murder of Mahsa Amini (Jina) last week.
Deaths have been recorded in 16 provinces from Mazandaran to Kurdistan, from Tehran to Zanjan.
On the other hand, thousands of protesters and civil activists have been arrested so far, and the arrest process continues.
State-affiliated websites have shared videos of protesters’ false confessions which, according to the Islamic Republic’s history, were obtained under threats and torture.
Internet access has also either been severely disrupted or completely cut off over the last seven days. Instagram, WhatsApp, Signal, Google Play, App Store and many other foreign platforms are all down and their websites have been filtered. According to sources on the ground, the internet speed drops at the end of the day, to the point that it stops the filter breaksers.
Jina Mahsa Amini was a 22-year-old girl from Saqqez (Kurdistan) who had travelled to Tehran with her family to visit relatives in Tehran when she was arrested by Guidance Patrol officers on September 14.
Shortly after, she fainted at the Vozara police station and went into a coma. According to witness testimonies, Mahsa was beaten by the arresting officers in the police van and later at the police station. She was officially declared to have died at Kasra Hospital on September 16.
