19 high school girls were arrested and 10 injured
Plainclothes agents attacked Shahed High School in Ardabil on Thursday, October 13, 2022, arrested 19 students and injured ten more, reliable sources said.
The Coordination Council of Teachers confirmed this report. The council said the school’s principal, Ozra Fatehi, had collaborated with the intelligence services.
No information is available on the arrested girl students’ fate and place of detention. Some reports indicate that more students are missing.
Intelligence agents have pressured the students’ parents and the medical staff at Fatemi Hospital to refrain from sending out information on the incident. Otherwise, they would not see their children again, the agents warned.
Another report from Shahed High School for Girls on Thursday, October 13, said that the school’s directors attempted to force their students to participate in a gathering in support of the government. However, the students reacted by chanting, “death to the dictator.”
The principal, Ozra Fatehi, called the security forces to intervene immediately, and her deputy, Ms. Afzalifar, filmed the protesting students. Eventually, the security forces and plainclothes agents went to the school. They beat up the students and their parents who had gathered outside.
There have been many reports in recent days of the arrest of high school girls who participated in Iran protests. The clerical regime has not announced the number of student detainees. Some officials have acknowledged that the 60% of the detainees are between 15 and 22 years old. Others put the age between 15 and 17.
High school girls actively joined the Iran protests, which have lasted nearly one month.
Morality police and plainclothes agents violently assault young women and girls
In yet another development, footage circulated in social media showed the morality police in Tabriz violently arresting a woman and hauling her into a van.
Another video shows a gang of morality police and plainclothes agents sexually assault at least two young women at night.
A third video shows dozens of motor patrols surrounding a young woman to protect their commanders while assaulting her and preventing the public from noticing and coming to aid.
The NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi called on Iran’s courageous men and women to defend their sisters whenever they confront bitter scenes of Khamenei’s agents and mercenaries attacking them. “Use every possible means to protect our fellow women at any time and place,” she urged them.
Maryam Rajavi reiterated, “Over the past 40 years, the regime has tested such atrocities in prisons against women from the opposition PMOI/MEK and other dissident groups. A well-known practice of the mullahs, IRGC, and MOIS to break the resistance of Iranian women and force them to give up, but to no avail.
