Iran’s 2022 protests: 20 protesters reportedly killed at the hands of regime security forces
On Saturday, the nationwide uprising in Iran entered its 51st day after the regime’s oppressive security forces committed yet another massacre, this time in the city of Khash in southeast Iran’s Sistan & Baluchestan Province. The regime’s security forces carried out the killing of at least twenty locals in Khash. The people of this province and cities across the country are standing firm and relentlessly pursuing their escalating protests to bring the mullahs’ rule to an end once and for all.
Following the tragic death of Mahsa Amini, a young Kurdish woman, at the hands of the regime’s morality police, protests erupted and have now expanded to at least 216 cities. According to People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) sources, the regime’s forces have killed over 530 people and arrested over 25,000. The names of 358 protesters killed have been released by the MEK.
According to early Saturday reports, authorities on various campuses are inspecting college students’ backpacks and purses, and even insulting them, before allowing them to enter the perimeters. Such reports were received in Tehran from the Sharif University of Technology and Islamic Azad University-North Branch. Students at Mashhad University reported similar incidents.

On Saturday, students from Tehran, Kharazmi, Allameh Tabataba’i, Sharif, the Islamic Azad University Science and Research Branch, Amir Kabir, the Islamic Azad University Tehran North Branch, Pardis North, and the Islamic Azad University Science and Research Branch have been chanting anti-mullah slogans in Tehran, the country’s capital.
Locals in the restive city of Saqqez, Mahsa Amini’s hometown, were reporting that merchants and store owners were on strike in solidarity with the nationwide general uprising. Similar reports are coming in from merchants in Tehran’s Tajrish Square and Karaj’s Hesarak district, just west of the Iranian capital.
Despite the regime’s heavy security measures, protests resumed in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan on Friday. Protesters in Khash resisted the regime’s repressive forces by attacking the governor’s office. Protest rallies were held by citizens in Rask. Several locals have been injured after security forces opened fire on protesters. According to activists, the city hospital cannot handle a large number of injured patients. As per recent reports, at least twenty people have been killed and more than 60 have been injured by the regime’s oppressive security forces.
Locals in Tehran’s Javadieh district began erecting roadblocks, and protesters chanted, “This is the year Seyed Ai (Khamenei) will be overthrown.” Activists claim the regime’s security forces used tear gas and shotgun pellet rounds. Protesters, on the other hand, remained defiant in the face of the crackdown.
On Friday, Iranian opposition NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi strongly condemned the regime’s brutality and urged the international community to stand with the Iranian people. “Our Baluch brothers and sisters rose up today in Zahedan, Saravan, Suran, Rask, and Khash, chanting “Death to Khamenei!” ” as well as “Death to Basiji!” ” The brave youths of Khash defended themselves against the shooting of security forces… I urge all young people to rush to the aid of the injured,” she continued. “We urge Europe and the rest of the world to: recognize the Iranian people’s right to self-defense; recognize their right to struggle to overthrow religious fascism and establish freedom, democracy, and human rights,” said NCRI President-elect.
