Regime continues chemical gas attacks on Iranian schools, sparking protests
The Hengaw Human Rights Organization has reported at least 20 chemical gas attacks by regime operatives targeting schools throughout Iran. In response to these attacks, protests are escalating in numbers. To date, these protests have expanded to at least 282 cities. However, the regime’s forces have killed over 750 people and arrested more than 30,000, according to sources of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
