An earthquake measuring 5.9 on the Richter Scale hit the city of Khoy, West Azerbaijan province, in northwest Iran on Saturday, January 28, 2023. Despite a week passing since the earthquake, the situation for the victims remains critical and the government's response has been insufficient.

Khoy earthquake: Victims still stranded one week after disaster

An earthquake measuring 5.9 on the Richter Scale hit the city of Khoy, West Azerbaijan province, in northwest Iran on Saturday, January 28, 2023. Despite a week passing since the earthquake, the situation for the victims remains critical and the government's response has been insufficient.

An earthquake measuring 5.9 on the Richter Scale hit the city of Khoy, West Azerbaijan province, in northwest Iran on Saturday, January 28, 2023. Despite a week passing since the earthquake, the situation for the victims remains critical and the government’s response has been insufficient.

 

 

The earthquake caused significant destruction, with reports indicating that over 3,500 residential units were damaged, with damages ranging from 20-80%. The earthquake also caused widespread closures of bakeries, stores, restaurants, and service centers, exacerbating people’s difficulties in meeting their basic daily needs.

Despite the destruction and suffering caused by the earthquake, the government has yet to take any serious measures to help the victims. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Basij forces were deployed to the area, but given the lack of resources, they have been unable to undertake any repairs or provide public assistance. The government has also ruled that public assistance to earthquake victims is subject to its discretion.

 

The distribution of food and other basic necessities has been chaotic, with earthquake victims still not having access to tents or other means of shelter.

The distribution of food and other basic necessities has been chaotic, with earthquake victims still not having access to tents or other means of shelter.

 

Some Khoy residents have reported having to share tents and only receiving two plates of food for 12 people. The closures of stores and restaurants have also left people without access to food.

In response to the government’s mismanagement of the disaster, there have been protests in the affected areas. Iranian security forces have clamped down on these protests and have used a water cannon to disperse people who had gathered in front of the regional administration building in Khoy.

The situation for the victims of the Khoy earthquake remains critical, and people have lost hope in receiving government assistance. 400 families in a village have been left without tents, despite some tents being sent to the area. Government authorities have quickly dispatched anti-riot forces, and have declared the earthquake-affected areas as security zones.

 

According to government officials, anyone voluntarily coming to the area to provide independent assistance will be arrested.

One resident of Khoy spoke about the situation, “The earthquake was so awful that no one from the authorities came to help us. We are in dire need of tents. I cry. The situation here is terrible. For God’s sake, take care of us here. The situation is horrible. Give us tents. Everyone is in need. God knows we are stranded; please reach out to us.”

Despite the dire situation, the government has yet to take meaningful action to help the victims of the Khoy earthquake. People are left without basic necessities and without hope for the future.

Despite the regime's heavy crackdown, Iran's nationwide uprising continues in a more defiant, radical, and daring manner.

Infighting worsens in Iran’s clerical regime as protests continue across the nation

Despite the regime's heavy crackdown, Iran's nationwide uprising continues in a more defiant, radical, and daring manner.

Despite the regime’s heavy crackdown, Iran’s nationwide uprising continues in a more defiant, radical, and daring manner. 

 

 

Religious congregations and burial ceremonies devolve into anti-regime protests, and state security is rendered helpless to identify, let alone apprehend, the brave youth tarnishing the images, symbols, and statues of the regime’s icon across the country. Fear is dissipating, and hope is growing.

Following its failure to contain the situation, the clerical regime’s infighting has worsened. The Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, thought he could consolidate power in his regime by installing his men in the Majlis (Parliament) and selecting Ebrahim Raisi as president.

When Raisi presented his budget bill to parliament last week, he boasted about his government’s accomplishments. A few days later, on January 31, Khamenei refuted his president’s claims, admitting “contradictory decisions” made during Raise’s presidency.

“Now we are dealing with some contradictory decisions by the executive branch. One organization decides to act, and the other rejects it and does the opposite. Yet, both sit behind the same desk in the government’s sessions. It shouldn’t happen,” Khamenei said.

 

 

 

On February 2, Raisi rejected his mentor’s speech and lied about his government’s accomplishments, including increased employment and lower inflation. In contrast to Raisi’s fabricated statistics, Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf takes every opportunity to discuss the regime’s total bankruptcy and economic crises. “We should pay attention to the economy. We shouldn’t ridicule the [state]. We should implement its objectives,” he said in February

Gholam Hossein Mohseni Eje’i, the regime’s Judiciary Chief, also joined Ghalibaf on February 1 to speak against Raisi and his government’s “insufficiency.” “If we fail to address economic problems and people’s livelihood today, the enemy pours salt on people’s financial wounds,” he warned. Raisi’s failure to address the country’s economic crisis has been acknowledged by regime officials. But they all know, and especially Khamenei, that Raise’s main task has been to suppress society.

If authorities speak of the country’s financial calamity and accuse one another, they also unanimously warn about the “enemy” and the “riot.” According to recorded statements of state officials, the regime’s adversaries are the Iranian people and their organized opposition, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), with the latter serving as the catalyst for the uprising.

 

 

 

The Iranian people, as well as their organized Resistance movement, have shown a willingness to establish a democratic system. This demand should be embraced by the entire world. In the face of the regime’s increasing violence, Western countries should cut ties with Tehran and support people’s right to self-determination and self-defense.

Protesters chanted, “Death to Khamenei,” “Death to the oppressor, be it the Shah or the Leader (Khamenei),” “We have no fear of death or jail, we will stand until the end,” “We pledge to the blood of our comrades – we will stand until the end,” “I will kill whoever killed my brother,” and “Political prisoner must be released,” “Death to the Supreme Leader after many long years of crimes.

On Tuesday, January 31, members of the United Kingdom's House of Commons questioned British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson about how the UK plans to respond to the dangers and security threats posed by the Iranian regime to the Middle East and their country.

UK House of Commons calls on the British FM to ban Iran’s IRGC

On Tuesday, January 31, members of the United Kingdom's House of Commons questioned British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson about how the UK plans to respond to the dangers and security threats posed by the Iranian regime to the Middle East and their country.

On Tuesday, January 31, members of the United Kingdom’s House of Commons questioned British Foreign Minister James Cleverly about how the UK plans to respond to the dangers and security threats posed by the Iranian regime to the Middle East and their country.

 

Demanding specific actions from the British government, the MPs emphasized that London must sanction the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) for gross human rights violations that have spread terror throughout the world and destabilized the region.

Regarding the Iranian regime’s nuclear ambitions, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Affairs James Cleverly said: “Iran continues to escalate its nuclear activities and in doing so threatens international peace and security. We will continue to collaborate closely with our international partners and allies to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. The Iranians have the option of engaging more usefully with the joint comprehensive plan of action, but they have spectacularly failed to seize that opportunity.”

Responding to Michael Fabricant (Lichfield/Con) concerning the UK’s recent assessment of the implications of the Iranian regime’s nuclear capabilities Mr. Cleverly also added: “It is in their gift to alleviate the sanctions imposed upon them through their actions, but they have spectacularly failed to do so.”

 

 

Ruth Cadbury (Brentford and Isleworth/Lab) then asked how the UK is dealing with Iran’s military threat to its allies via proxies, as well as its arms trade and sales, and what the government is doing to counter the flow of Iranian drones to Russia to support the war against Ukraine.

Mr. Clever responded. “We have implemented more than 50 new sanctions designations in recent months in response to Iranian human rights abuses and its military support to Russia. We will continue to collaborate closely with our international partners to take additional steps to make it clear that such behavior is unacceptable.”

Answering Greg Smith (Buckingham/Con) about the UK’s assessment of the regime’s Revolutionary Guard Corps’ role in the region, the British Foreign Minister stated: “The Government wholly condemns the destabilizing activity of the IRGC in the region and beyond. This includes military proxies as well as attacks and threats against Iran’s regional neighbors. We have imposed more than 300 sanctions on Iranian individuals and entities, including the total sanctioning of the IRGC.”

 

 

As Mr. Smith pressed the British FM on recent widespread calls for the UK to sanction the IRGC for arming and financing terror proxies, assisting the murderous assault on Ukraine, intensifying involvement in the international drug trade, and increasing security threats to the UK, Mr. Cleverly responded that the UK does “not limit ourselves to the actions that he has announced when it comes to ensuring security.”

According to recent reports, Massoumeh Senobari was arrested in Karaj on December 31, 2022, and transferred to the city’s Fardis Prison (Kachouii). Ms. Senobari’s family is unaware of her condition and is concerned for her well-being.

Mohammad Ali’s daughter, Massoumeh Senobari, was born in Tabriz in 1988 and has a daughter. She was imprisoned in the Tabriz Central Prison’s women’s ward after being sentenced to 8 years in prison on charges of “propaganda against the state” and “insulting” the mullahs’ supreme leader.

Massoumeh Senobari was arrested on February 24, 2019, and was transferred to the Tabriz Intelligence Department’s detention center. During interrogation, she was brutally tortured and was unable to walk due to vicious whipping. Her vision was blurred as a result of the blows to the head. Her leg broke and her heel cracked. In August 2019, she was released on bail of 600 million tomans pending her trial.

 

Massoumeh Senobari was arrested again on February 5, 2020, at her sister's house, without a previous summons, and subjected to severe torture

Massoumeh Senobari was arrested again on February 5, 2020, at her sister’s house, without a previous summons, and subjected to severe torture.

 

She was infected with the Covid-19 disease in October 2020, during a coronavirus outbreak in Tabriz’s Central Prison. The political prisoner also has heart problems, but the Tabriz prison authorities have refused to give her the medication provided by her family. In 2021, she was finally released from prison. Ms. Senobari was arrested again in Karaj and transferred to Fardis Prison (Kechoui) on December 31, 2022, and her current condition is unknown.

The clerical regime’s Judiciary informed MEK political prisoners Zahra Safaei and Parastoo Moini on January 30, 2023, that they would be deported to Qom prison. The two political prisoners are being held in Evin Prison at the moment. On February 24, 2020, security forces apprehended Zahra Safaei and Parastoo Moini and transferred them to Ward 209 of Evin Prison’s solitary cells. Political prisoner Zahra Safaei, her daughter Parastoo Moini, and her son Mohammad Massoud Moini were sentenced to eight years, six years, and six years of imprisonment, respectively, on January 23, 2021.

Zahra Safaei and her children are charged with “assembly and conspiracy to act against national security through communication with the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK),” “achieving their goals,” and “participating in Mojahedin circles and gatherings.” Their other charge is “propaganda against the state by writing slogans, reading statements and letters, and putting up banners on public roads.”

 

 

Ms. Safaei was admitted to the hospital on August 31, 2021, after suffering a heart attack. She then had a heart operation. Despite her unfavorable physical conditions following the heart surgery and her inability to endure imprisonment, Zahra Safaei remains imprisoned.

Without explanation, the Izeh Intelligence Police authorities barred her from teaching classes.

 

 

Zeynab Molaei Rad did not receive a violation notice, and her job suspension was communicated to her verbally. The security personnel acted harshly and disrespectfully. Despite her request, they refused to provide Ms. Molaei Rad with a written letter.

The Iranian regime’s security forces killed Kian Pirfalak, Zeynab Molaei Rad’s son, and seriously injured his father by opening fire on their car on the evening of November 16, 2022, in the city of Izeh. Security forces also killed seven other people in Izeh that night. Kian’s father, Maysam Pirfalak, is now unable to walk or stand, and the family is preoccupied with his hospital treatment.

Officials from the clerical regime attempted to blame terrorists for the deaths of Kian and several other Izeh residents. However, Zeynab Molaei Rad emphasized during her son’s funeral ceremony in front of thousands of people and security forces that the government’s claim about the terrorist attack was a lie, and the security forces themselves shot at the family’s car.

 

 

On the other hand, Kian’s uncle, Sajjad Pirfalak, stated in an interview with Etemad newspaper that the truth is what Kian’s mother said in front of thousands of people.

On Wednesday, the Friends of Free Iran (FOFI) inter-parliamentary group in the European Parliament held a conference in solidarity with the Iranian people’s uprising and the EU’s policy regarding the Iranian regime and its terrorist Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). The event, which was held in Brussels, brought together prominent MEPs, human rights activists, and experts to discuss the situation in Iran and the EU’s role in addressing the ongoing human rights crisis. The keynote speaker of the event was Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

The conference also focused on the EU’s policy towards Iran and its recent decision to not add the IRGC to the EU’s terrorist list. Mrs. Rajavi stressed that the EU’s refusal to implement the EP’s resolution is a huge disappointment for the Iranian protesters and human rights defenders. “For years, EU policy has been based on engagement with the mullahs’ regime.

 

 

The other side of which has been ignoring the voice of the Iranian people and the Resistance. The EU policy has been destructive, not only for the Iranian people but also for Europe.

The other side of which has been ignoring the voice of the Iranian people and the Resistance. The EU policy has been destructive, not only for the Iranian people but also for Europe.

 

 

Look at the number of European or dual citizens currently held hostage in Iran. Europe’s failure to hold the regime accountable has given it a license for impunity for its crimes against the Iranian people and impunity for terrorism in Europe and hostage-taking.”

In his opening remarks, MEP Petras Auštrevičius, who co-chaired the event, referred to FOFI’s declarations and the EP’s resolution calling for the IRGC’s terrorist designation. He expressed his support for the Iranian people and the need for a firm policy towards the regime. “We ask as well for the immediate and unconditional release of all protesters sentenced to death, and the list is included. There is a line expressing our strong solidarity with Iranian youth, women, and men for each and every normal society and country.”

MEP Auštrevičius also emphasized the need for further action to be taken by the EU regarding the Iranian regime. He referred to the EP’s resolution and stated, “Indeed, a very special line is dedicated to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and its subsidiary forces. We asked to include them on the terrorist list.”

 

 

MEP Milan Zver from Slovenia concluded the conference with a call to action for the EU to take a firm stance against the Iranian regime and its human rights crimes.

On Friday, January 27, the 134th day of the nationwide uprising, thousands of Zahedan residents once again staged widespread demonstrations after Friday prayers, despite the unprecedented suppressive measures.

 

 

Protests in Iran have now spread to at least 282 cities. According to sources from the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the regime’s forces have killed over 750 people and arrested over 30,000. The MEK has released the names of 637 protesters who were killed. In Zahedan, regime officials have been flying military helicopters over the city to instill fear among residents. Protesters were heard chanting anti-regime slogans such as “Death to Khamenei!” “So many years of criminality!” “Death to the regime of the mullahs!”

 

On Friday, people took to the streets in Tehran’s various districts, as well as Rask, Khash, and Galikesh in Golestan Province in northeast Iran. On Friday, people gathered in Izeh, Khuzestan Province, southwest Iran, to remember Saeed Saeedi, a protester killed by the regime’s security forces. Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), praised the people of Zahedan and the entire province of Sistan & Baluchestan for their courage in continuing to protest the mullahs’ regime.

 

 

“The courageous people of Zahedan and Rask took to the streets after their Friday prayer chanting, ‘Death to Khamenei,’ ‘Death to Basij’ and ‘Khamenei is a criminal’. “Our Baluch compatriots demonstrated the determination of all Iranians to destabilize the regime and achieve freedom,” she stressed.

The NCRI President-elect also sent a message to the Arab-Islamic Conference in Brussels on Friday, titled “Solidarity with the Iranian people’s democratic revolution,” emphasizing that overthrowing the mullahs’ regime is a prerequisite for ridding Iran and the Middle East of the scourge of religious extremism, terrorism, and warmongering.

 

 

“The people of Iran have refuted both the past and present regimes thousands of times by their chants of ‘Down with the oppressor, be it the shah or the mullahs’ supreme leader!’ and similar slogans. As a result, the Iranian people have rejected all forms of dictatorship,” she went on to say.

“We called on Middle East countries to establish a common front against the clerical regime, with the Iranian people and resistance as decisive components. Such a front is required for the region and Iran to be liberated from religious extremism, terrorism, and warmongering. The region and the world will not be at peace until they target the epicenter of fundamentalism, the mullahs’ regime. The alternative, as stated by the NCRI President-elect, is to fight for a free Iran that brings friendship, fraternity, and peace to the Middle East and the world.

Iran Nationwide Uprising – Day 134

On Friday, January 27, the 134th day of the nationwide uprising, thousands of Zahedan residents once again staged widespread demonstrations after Friday prayers, despite the unprecedented suppressive measures.

On Friday, January 27, the 134th day of the nationwide uprising, thousands of Zahedan residents once again staged widespread demonstrations after Friday prayers, despite the unprecedented suppressive measures.

 

Demonstrators chanted, “Death to Khamenei, damn with Khomeini,” “Death to the Supreme Leader after many long years of crimes,” “Death to the oppressor, be it the Shah or the Leader (Khamenei),” “Shame on Khamenei, let go of the country,” “We are hungry, Khamenei is a criminal,” “Poverty, corruption, high prices, onward to overthrow,” and “Death to the informant, death to Basiji, death to IRGC.”

The demonstrators carried placards that read, “No to the dictatorship of Shah or clergy, yes to the Democratic Republic,” “Baluchistan, in all ups and downs, is the land of thousands of warriors” and “We want Democracy and Equality.”

 

 

The suppressive forces surrounded Makki Mosque and the special motorized units attacked the demonstrators and arrested a number of them. Since yesterday, the IRGC intensified security in Zahedan more than ever by establishing checkpoints at the entrances to the city and throughout the urban area in order to prevent demonstrations.

In the meantime, people in Rask staged demonstrations and chanted “Death to Khamenei” and “Death to Basiji.” In the city of Galikesh in Golestan province, fellow Sunnis staged a protest gathering against the house arrest of Molavi Mohammad Hossein Gorgij, the Friday prayer leader of Azad Shahr.

 

In Izeh, the ceremony of the 40th day of martyrdom Hossein Saeedi and Mahmoud Ahmadi were held today and yesterday consecutively. Large crowds attending the ceremonies chanted “Death to Khamenei,” “From Zahedan to Izeh, our homeland is bleeding,” “Mahmoud Ahmadi, a Bakhtiari (local ethnic) warrior” and “Hussein Saidi, a Bakhtiari warrior.” They were killed on December 20, 2022, in an attack on their residence, but the regime refused to hand over their bodies to their families in fear of people’s protests.

Last night, in the Parand neighborhood of Tehran, the slogans of “Death to the dictator” echoed from the buildings during a power outage. In Ahvaz, the defiant youths set fire to a Basij base. In Naqadeh, the youths attacked the place of one of the regime’s agents using Molotov cocktails.
