“My sympathies to the brave parents and people who put to rest slain heroes Mohammad Ahmadi, Foad Mohammadi, Ghafur Mowludi, Aram Habibi, and Sepehr Esmaili in Mahabad, Kamyaran, Bukan, Sanandaj, and Qazvin with chants of ‘Death to Khamenei’ despite Revolutionary Guards IRGC’s barrage of bullets and teargas,” said Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

Security forces have been firing ammunition that has ruptured the eyes of anti-regime demonstrators in the past two months. According to human rights activists, security forces killed at least three protesters Saturday.

November 19 marked the 65th 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 231 cities. The regime has killed more than 600 citizens, injured tens of thousands, and detained over 30,000. The MEK has published the names of 466 killed protesters.

Key Developments:

  • Protesters attacked and torched several IRGC Basij bases, so-called seminaries, pro-regime statues and banners in various cities. They also established roadblocks and confronted oppressive forces in many areas.
  • Merchants and locals were on strike in several cities, shaking the mullahs’ traditional base as a sign of the regime’s vulnerability. College students also boycotted classes in solidarity with the nationwide protests and strikes.
  • Last night, after IRGC forces attacked Shahid Gholi Pur Hospital in Bukan, they seized Shahryar Mohammadi’s body and buried him secretly. These forces opened fire on his family and inflicted injuries on at least five people. Security forces are carrying out secret burials of protesters they have killed, fearing public fury and revenge.
  • In his today’s speech, dictator Ali Khamenei claimed that “the ‘riots’ will come to an end.” He again blamed “foreign enemies,” indicating his regime will not and cannot address the people’s grievances.
  • “The Iranian regime again reveals its true face as security forces detain, abuse and use deadly force against children,” U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez said. “No clearer sign the regime’s brutality knows no bounds. We won’t forget Kian Pirfalak or all young lives lost as we reaffirm our vow to stand with Iran Protests.”
  • Foreign Secretary James Cleverly accused Iran of spreading “bloodshed and destruction” around the world as he reaffirms Britain’s determination to prevent it from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
  • “Iran continues to disregard its people’s human rights and continues to fire on and kill peaceful protestors today, including many women and children,” saidS. State Department spokesperson Vedant Patel in his November 18th briefing. “The world is watching, and Iran’s human rights abuses must not be without consequence.”
  • Security forces in Isfahan Central Prison have tortured the famous Iranian rapper, Toomaj Salehi, trying to force him to make TV confessions. The severity of his torture is such that four of his fingers have been broken. The popular singer has been on hunger strike at Ward A.D. in Isfahan Central Prison for six days.
  • State-run TV News Channel reported at least three Basij agents were slain in Mashhad during the oppression operation.
  • Thousands of freedom-loving Iranians demonstrated in Berlin, Aarhus, and many cities across the globe against the Iranian regime, calling on world powers to recognize the Iranian people’s cause of freedom through regime change.
