Iran: Acid attacks continue, a 24-year-old woman in Isfahan targeted

On Friday night, 24 October , criminal gangs affiliated with the clerical regime attacked a 24 year-old woman and in an anti-human act splashed acid on her face. The crime was committed at 8:10 pm at the 3-way intersection of Malek Shahr in Isfahan by three criminals riding motorcycles who had their faces covered. One of the eyewitnesses identified one of the criminals as a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Basij force in that district.

According to further information received, a case of acid attacks in Tehran took place on Tuesday night (October 21) in the street across Tohid Metro where criminals riding motorcycles splashed acid on the face of a middle-aged woman who was inside a vehicle. More than half of the woman’s face was burnt by acid.

Elham Aminzadeh, a deputy of Hassan Rouhani, attempting to help the clerical regime escape from the consequences of these atrocities and tried to justify them said: The acid attacks in Isfahan were for personal matters and had nothing to do with “promotion of virtue and prevention of vice”.

On October 23, NCRI Women’s Committee Chair Ms. Sarvnaz Chitsaz expressed strong revulsion for the tragic atrocities of splashing acid on the faces of women and girls in a number of cities and called on all Iranian women to protest against this anti-human crime and to actively participate in the demonstrations on October 25 and to support Iran’s zealous women, especially the victims of this ominous crime.
