Continuation of the Iranian occupation regime’s extrajudicial killing and arrest against Ahwazi people
Although the number of extrajudicial killings and other crimes committed against Ahwazis is on the rise recently by extensively documented with wide-ranging evidence in the form of photos, videos, and witness testimonies proving the Iranian occupation regime’s responsibility for committing these crimes, including its use of threats to silence the families of the dead person – However, the United Nations and other international bodies and human rights organizations remained silent and failed to take any action to punish the Iranian regime or publicize its crimes. While the United Nations appointed a special rapporteur to study indiscriminate killings by the Iranian occupation regime’s members, there has been little movement from the international organizations in the subsequent two to three decades to take any concrete action to punish the perpetrators, as the Iranian criminal official’s role appears to have been largely ceremonial.
The failure of the United Nations Human Rights Council to fulfill its duties and uphold its constitution and decisions have left the Ahwazi people defenceless in an actual confrontation with systematic state terrorism without protection, which gives the Iranian regime a carte blanche to encroach on international law and ignore the most basic principles of human rights with complete impunity.
The Iranian occupation regime has extrajudicially killed seven Ahwazi young without prior warning and specifying any rationale reasons to justify its killing against innocent Ahwazi young. Following are the names of Ahwazi people who were shot dead in recent days.
