By Hossein Bouazar

An Arab fisherman was killed by the security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Hoor Hawizeh (Hoor al-Azim).

Ahmad Sawari, 32, the son of Ati, a resident of Rafi, was killed by Iranian security forces on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights sources say;  Ahmad’s friend was also shot and taken to hospital.

Our sources added: “These young people are fishing and sometimes exchanging commercial goods in Hoor, so they are always chased by the security forces and attacked by the security forces.”

Earlier, several residents of this area, including Hamed, Hossein, Yassin and Mohammad Sawari, were shot and killed by security forces while traveling in Hoor.  Ahmad clip while fishing in Hoor Hawizeh.

We, the Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights (ACHR), concerns, while Ahwazi Arabs faced continued oppression and discrimination, the most significant human rights issues included a high number of executions for false confession and false crimes without fair trials of individuals. Torture; harsh and life-threatening prison conditions; arbitrary detention and imprisonment; of hundreds of political prisoners, are just few examples of how the Iranian regime violates the human rights, but we also should add that the regime’s handling of the Covid situation proves that the regime doesn’t care about Ahwazi lives and that raises a great concerns, and get international attention.

We are calling upon Mr. Javaid Rehman the United Nations special rapporteur for the situation of human rights in Iran and Mrs Agnes Callamard the UN special rapporteur on extraJudicial execution to intervene and stop the Iranian criminal regime from executing innocent prisoners that were arrested without any legal warrant.
