Chemical attacks on Iranian schoolgirls: Negligence and impunity
Ummat Girls’ High School and Yahyavi School in Tehran, Nasiri and Abuzar Girls’ High Schools in Urmia, Chamran Art School in Hamedan, and Pishtazan High School in Dezful were all targeted by chemical attacks. Many students were sent to medical centers for treatment, and the situation continues to be dire.
This is not a new phenomenon. Since November of the previous year, the regime has been conducting serial chemical attacks targeting primarily female high school students. However, officials have responded with blatant lies and negligence, failing to investigate the root cause of the poisoning.
Ahmad Hossein Fallahi, a member of the parliamentary education commission, criticized the government’s lack of action to identify the perpetrators. He called for security institutions to take the matter more seriously, stating that the poisoning of female students goes beyond the actions of a few students. Fallahi went on to say, “The security institutions should follow up on this issue more seriously because it seems that they are dealing with this matter very superficially. This approach may not have good consequences for the state.”
The state-run Eghtesaad24.ir also criticized the lack of action, stating, “Five months have passed since the publication of the first news of students being poisoned in schools, and there is still no news of identifying the perpetrators.
The Iranian Resistance has called for an independent investigation by the UN international fact-finding committee to expose the regime’s systematic crimes against students. Forty-four years of impunity of the clerical regime’s leaders have emboldened them to commit more heinous acts, such as the poisoning of schoolgirls.
It is profoundly concerning that innocent students continue to be targeted and killed by the regime while authorities continue to downplay the situation. The world must stop these crimes against humanity and hold those responsible accountable for their actions. The international community must act to protect the students of Iran and to prevent further tragedies.
