Iran: Two killed, Four Wounded Due As Air Force Guards Attack Protesters

Published by on August 12, 2019

At least two people were killed, and four others wounded after an army air force in the northern Mazendran province opened fire on locals protesting attempts to confiscate their lands.
The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) news agency, Fars, quoted local sources as saying that the clash started over a dispute about land ownership in the Mahmoud Abad region.

According to Fars News Agency, deputy governor of Mazanderan said: “There is tension in the region. The air force security unit opened fire, leaving two people killed and four wounded. After this incident, the city council held a session followed by a similar meeting of the provincial council”.

This should be mentioned that he claims this subject was not related to the confiscation of lands.

Also, IRNA news agency reported that security forces at the base opened fire on the people and government employees who were trying to enforce a court decision over the ownership issue.

IRNA said a court in Mazanderan had ruled that lands occupied by the air force around a village should be vacated in favour of the residents in the area.

The Iranian voiceless people have no security at all, and the government violates all of their rights violently and suppresses their peaceful and righteous protests.
