Iran: Protests Continue Despite Khash Massacre – Day 50

Citizens continue anti-regime protests across Iran, despite pro-regime rallies, threats, and bloodshed, particularly in Khash.

On Friday, November 4, 2022, citizens resumed protests across Iran. Thousands of worshippers rallied in mosques of Khash, Zahedan, Saravan, Rask, Suran, Sarbaz, Iranshahr, and other cities in Sistan & Baluchestan. However, as in previous weeks, the Friday Prayer turned into anti-regime demonstrations.

“Death to Khamenei,” “Death to the dictator,” “This is the year of [Khamenei] overthrow,” “Death to the regime’s principle,” and “Mullahs must get lost,” widely chanted by protesters.

Footage shows security forces heavily shooting at protesters in Khash. Iranian dissidents TV Channel Simay-e Azadi reported that the regime killed at least eight citizens and injured over 60 across the province as of the afternoon.

Responding to the regime’s atrocities, defiant youths in Khash attacked the local governorate, taking over it and set there ablaze. Furthermore, protesters torched murderers’ vehicles.

November 4 marked the 50th day of anti-regime protests in Iran. The demonstrations began following the heinous murder of Mahsa Amini, 22, in police custody. However, it immediately turned into a revolution against the entire theocratic regime.

According to the Iranian opposition Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI), the protests have extended to 213 cities. The regime has killed more than 480 citizens, injured tens of thousands, and detained over 25,000. The MEK has published the names of 324 killed protesters.

November 4 was also the tenth anniversary of the late Sattar Beheshti, 35, tortured to death by authorities in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison in 2012.
