Some 70 people were arrested in only two days for participating in night parties, in the northeastern city of Nayshabour.
Ali Akbar Hosseini, the city’s Commander of Bassij, announced that 14 girls and 14 boys were arrested in a party on May 22. And 40 people were arrested in another party on May 21, 2016. They were all handed over to judicial authorities.
The new wave of arrests are aimed at terrorizing women and youths, and suppressing their protests to gain their rights.
