Maryam Rajavi message
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), repeated her condolences on the staggering COVID-19 death toll in Sistan and Baluchestan and called for nationwide support for the victims. She emphasized that Khamenei had not given up on the strategy of mass human casualties to prevent the uprising.
Otherwise, most of the fatalities could have been prevented. Transportation and rallies and the forced queuing of people outside polling stations during the election masquerade were clear examples of the violation of all COVID-19 preventive health protocols. The crime the regime leaders have committed, causing large-scale human casualties, is a crime against humanity.
