Azar Mirzapour was 48 years old. She had three daughters and a son.
On November 16, Azar Mirzapour was in Golshahr, Karaj, when a bullet hit her directly in the heart and took her life.
Azar Mirzapour was a nurse. She was returning home after working two consecutive shifts at the hospital when she was shot by IRGC forces in the street. Right before heading home, Azar called her son and told him that she was going to arrive soon. Then, there was no news of her.
Azar’s sister and children looked for her everywhere until they traced her to Kowthar Hospital.
Azar Mirzapour’s sister said: In her death certificate, it was indicated that the reason for Azar’s death was “being shot in the heart.”
Azar Mirzapour was one of the 400 women and 1,500 martyrs who were ruthlessly massacred by the Iranian regime’s security forces during Iran protests in November 2019.
The Iranian Resistance has so far announced the identities of 643 of those killed.
Fearing the consequences of its crimes against humanity, the Iranian regime, however, continues to resist domestic and international calls to announce the actual number of martyrs, injured, and detained protesters, and is hiding the extent of the killings.
The regime is pressuring many of those detained under savage torture to appear in televised confessions.
The Iranian Resistance once again calls on the United Nations Secretary General to send a fact-finding mission to visit prisons and prisoners. Silence and inaction will only embolden the ruling mullahs to continue their crimes.
On December 20, 2019, sixteen UN human rights experts, including Javaid Rehman, the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, called on the Iranian authorities to release all individuals arbitrarily detained and mistreated during recent protests, and expressed concerns over the hundreds of people who have been killed.
