MEK Iran: IRGC Lays Siege on Baluchi Fuel Carriers Along Pakistani Border, One Starves to Death
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that a Baluchi fuel carrier surrounded by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) along the Iran-Pakistan border, died of hunger and thirst.
On Friday, April 17, a Baluchi fuel carrier surrounded by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) along the Iran-Pakistan border, called Fazl Sabzel, died of hunger and thirst. According to the report by Iranian resistance, hundreds of Baluchi fuel carriers have long been under siege in the scorching heat, with no water or food and no shelter in that region since a week ago.
The suppressive forces of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) have blocked the highway to prevent transporting fuel in the border area.
It worth knowing that the livelihood of most people in this area on both sides of the border depends on fuel business. The denial of access to these people, intended to enable the IRGC to monopolize fuel sales has adversely affected their lives.
Last February, the IRGC tried to block the transfer of fuel by Baluchi fuel carriers by erecting barriers and digging large holes on the highway, which were met with widespread protests. The IRGC opened fire on the fuel carriers and the people who came to their aid, killing dozens of protesters and injuring scores more. Dozens of fuel trucks were also set on fire by the Guards.
MEK Resistance Units
MEK Resistance Units showed their support for the protesters by organizing activities in Tehran, Tabriz, Kermanshah, Karaj, Qazvin, Kazerun, Sanandaj, and Borojen. They graffitied walls with the words: “Saravan is not alone;” “Hail to the brave people of Saravan;” “The mullahs’ will pay for their bloodshed of the brave people of Saravan;” and
“Down with the mullahs’ regime, we support Saravan.”
