International investigation needed for poisoning of female students in Iran
This comes in the wake of the fourth consecutive month of female students being poisoned, with the latest incident occurring on Saturday, March 11, across several cities. According to the Ministry, some of these individuals “acted out of mischief or adventure and used smelly substances to close classrooms.” The Ministry has also made the baseless claim that “investigations into these individuals, including their potential connections with terrorist organizations like MEK”, are ongoing.
The regime’s intention in linking these individuals to MEK is to conceal the involvement of institutions under the control of Ali Khamenei. Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has repeatedly suggested that the regime accept an international delegation to investigate this crime if they are not involved. However, the regime has failed to provide any concrete evidence to support its claims.
The regime’s propaganda and misinformation campaign is nothing new. The regime has been involved in several heinous crimes in the past, such as acid attacks on women, chain murders, the assassination of priests, and explosions in Imam Reza’s shrine.
State-run media has reported that a significant number of female students were poisoned by toxic gas in various schools across different cities, including Ahvaz, Abadan, Baghmalek, Dashtestan, Sanandaj, and Siahkal, on March 11.
The regime has claimed that less than 10 percent of the students were exposed to a stimulant substance that was not harmful or fatal and resembled war gases. However, this claim has been disputed by medical professionals who have stated that combined gases are being used for poisoning, and access to these gases is not possible for ordinary people.
