By INU Staff

INU - The Iranian regime’s security forces in the impoverished Sistan and Baluchistan Province opened fire on a vehicle carrying fuel and killed the driver and the passenger.

According to Iranian human rights activists, on Sunday, July 21, 2019, two Iranian Baluch citizens were killed on the road between Khash and Saravan after security forces opened fire on their car which was carrying fuel.

According to the report, the identities of the victims were determined as, Abdul Baset Shakarzahi, and Navid Shakarzahi, from a family in Khash’s Paskouh district.

Every year, security forces shoot and kill dozens of Iranian Baluch citizens in Sistan and Baluchestan, Kerman and Hormozgan provinces. Many of the victims are engaged in the sale and transportation of fuel, which the Iran regime calls smuggling.
