Iran faces nationwide protests over schoolgirl poisonings
The Iranian government has faced public outrage and criticism for its inadequate response to the crisis. Instead of taking immediate action to protect the children, the regime downplayed the situation and even denied that the poisonings had occurred.
While the root cause of the poisonings remains unclear, it is suspected that dangerous chemicals or N2 gas may be involved. Reports from affected students indicate that a sulfurous odor similar to that of eggs was detected during the release of the toxic gas. Other noxious smells such as rotten mandarin or bleach have also been reported, suggesting the use of a combination of gases by the perpetrators.

The scale and severity of these attacks suggest that they are not random occurrences but deliberate and coordinated efforts to harm vulnerable schoolgirls. The regime’s ultimate goal appears to be the suppression of women and girls in the country, particularly students who have been at the forefront of recent protests.
The regime’s hostility towards women is not new, and its actions against them have escalated in recent years. It has used various means to intimidate and control women, including the morality police. However, the growing resistance and pushback from women have forced the regime to resort to more violent and heinous crimes to maintain its grip on power.
The regime’s officials have made several disturbing comments that appear to encourage violence and aggression against women. For example, Ahmad Alamolhoda, a notorious regime cleric, has encouraged violence against women and has suggested that the regime’s supporters should attack them.
This latest crime against schoolgirls is organized, orchestrated, and executed by a centralized authority. Reports indicate that a complex and large operation is involved, and it cannot be the work of one person. The perpetrators have free rein in execution, indicating that they are supported by powerful forces within the regime.

The Iranian people have taken to the streets to express their outrage and demand justice for the victims of these heinous crimes. The international community must also speak out against these atrocities and hold the regime accountable for its actions. Urgent and effective measures must be taken to prevent further harm to these vulnerable children and to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.
