U.S. Envoy Says Iranian Regime May Have Killed Over 1,000 Protesters

Tehran may have killed more than 1,000 protesters during the deadly clampdown against anti-regime protests, the U.S. State Department said. “As the truth is trickling out of Iran, it appears the regime could have murdered over a thousand Iranian citizens since the protests began,” the U.S. Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hook, disclosed on Thursday.

“Thousands of Iranians have been injured, and at least 7,000 more arrested,” special envoy Hook said. “This is the worst political crisis the regime has faced and its 40 years.”

A video footage cited by the U.S. State Department showed Iranian security forces encircling a group of unarmed protesters, shooting indiscriminately at them from machine guns mounted on pickup trucks and mowing down at least 100 demonstrators in this single incident.

Anti-regime protests began in mid-November after Tehran announced rationing of gasoline and a sharp hike in fuel prices. What began as discontent over deteriorating living conditions turned into nationwide anti-regime protests, hitting around 20 major cities across Iran, including the capital Tehran. Protesters called for the end of the Islamic regime, setting fire to propaganda billboards, banks, and regime’s offices.

The Iranian regime called in the  Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a U.S.-designated terrorist group, to quell the protests. Pro-regime forces deployed snipers, machine guns, and helicopter gunships to kill anti-regime protesters. Video evidence showed “security forces shooting unarmed demonstrators from behind while they were running away, and shooting others directly in the face and vital organs,” The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, confirmed on Friday.

Reuters news agency reported U.S. special envoy’s remarks:

Iranian security forces may have killed more than 1,000 people since protests over gasoline price hikes began in mid-November, U.S. Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook said on Thursday, adding that many thousands were also wounded in the unrest.

“As the truth is trickling out of Iran, it appears the regime could have murdered over a thousand Iranian citizens since the protests began,” Hook told reporters at a briefing at the State Department.

Among those were at least a dozen children, Hook said, but cautioned that the numbers were not definitive as Tehran blocked information. He said that “many thousands of Iranians” had also been wounded and at least 7,000 detained in Iran’s prisons.

While forces loyal to the Islamic regime are gunning down unarmed Iranians on the streets, the country’s so-called Supreme Leader Khamenei has called for the detained protesters to be treated “with Islamic compassion.” The regime is complying by raping and torturing detainees arrested in the wake of recent protests, media reports suggested. Iranian state-controlled TV channels aired forced confessions extracted from detained dissidents.

Amid popular unrest at home, Tehran is advancing its nuclear-capable ballistic missiles in violation of the United Nations Security Council resolution, Britain, France, and Germany stated in a statement on Wednesday. In recent months, the Islamic regime has launched military operations in neighboring Arab countries, attacked oil tankers in international waters, and repeatedly vowed to annihilate Israel.

While President Donald Trump pursues a policy of “maximum pressure” against the regime, European countries have responded to this blatant aggression by appeasement. Last week, more European Union member states — including Belgium, the Netherlands, and three Scandinavian countries — joined the Iranian payment mechanism that aims to bypass U.S. sanctions. Britain, Germany, and France are the leading promoters of the set up, which Washington sees as a money laundering and terrorism financing scheme.

The last time this happened, there was a deal, palettes full of cash, and a vacuum where ISIS could progress.

“The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) released the names of 19 more martyrs of the nationwide uprising. As such, the number of victims who have been identified so far stand 320.

The number of martyrs in the uprising that spread to 189 cities exceeds 1,000. Several children and minors are among them.”

I highly recommend those interested in Russia and the surrounding countries bookmark Tsariszm.com. It is a newsite run by ex-patriot Russians and Eastern Europeans. Well done with some surprising information. It does not stagnate, this is an active site and should be on anyone who has an interest in these areas, resource list.

The Europeans and progressives love to lecture about morality, especially to America.

The Iran regime won’t go down without a very bloody fight. The leaders have no desire to live out their lives as exiles in some Moscow backwater. And the lower echelon security forces have no where else to go. No, they’re going to fight to the death. Putin’s professional mercenary force will be there through the thick of it.

All of them have too much to lose. The secret nuclear weapons installations. The terrorist networks. Global drug and weapons running. Money laundering and cryptocurrency scams.

Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea.

And we’ll all be fine right up to the point that first nuclear bomb is detonated in Israel. And then we’ll have a problem.

do not believe it will come to that–if had to bet on one secret/intelligence service on earth, would be mossad–second to none–professional and lethal indeed

    Don’t count on it not happening. Iran will simply say, “Inshallah!”, if Allah will it, and push the big red button. And as they say, that’s all folks. You’ve got a nuclear armed Iran with the religious willpower to use it.

      I find it hard to believe that there would be any Iran after such an event. Also, I think that Israel is more than capable of a preemptive strike preventing Iran from nuking them.

        You’re right. If Iran used the any nuclear weapon they might develop on Israel it would mean the absolute destruction of the country of Iran by the West. But don’t forget, “Inshallah!” (if Allah wills it) is a powerful motivator. Inshallah! (if Allah wills it) we’ll destroy Israel. Inshallah! (if Allah wills it) the country will survive. Inshallah! it’s not rational but it is a powerful motivator for moslem believers. And here we are.

        And as for Israel “preempting” any such strike? Not hardly. One missile from Iran up and over into Israel and that’s all folks. Game over. Not a whole lot Israel can do but hope to intercept the missile before it strikes.

    Maybe we can that insane Swede to attack Iran.

    Greta lashes out and attacks the climate change school strikes people….

    “Swedish activist Greta Thunberg is angrier than ever. The 16-year-old climate crusader, whose childhood was stolen by everyone except China, says that the wave of climate change school strikes over the past year has “achieved nothing”……

    “Greta Thunberg Enraged After Climate Strikes “Achieved Nothing”, Has Yet To Visit China”

      the wave of climate change school strikes over the past year has “achieved nothing”……

      What did she expect it to achieve? In the best of all possible worlds, for her, what could it possibly have achieved?

      What exactly is a school strike anyway? I understand people who do something going on strike; if their demands are not met they will not do whatever useful thing it is that they do, and people will have to do without it. What do school kids produce, that the objects of their demands would not like to do without?

      When I was at school, if I’d tried to “go on strike” I’d have got a few good slaps on the bottom and I’d have had to go to school anyway.

And as for Israel “preempting” any such strike? Not hardly. One missile from Iran up and over into Israel and that’s all folks. Game over. Not a whole lot Israel can do but hope to intercept the missile before it strikes.

you underestimate mossad–by preemptive mean that mossad will destroy/liquidate the mechanisms/people involved(even remotely)in the construction/operation of delivery systems BEFORE things reach a launch/delivery capability

consider israel’s announcement of concrete evidence to be presented shortly of iran’s violations–most of the western world is aware of what iran has been doing(particularly with all the prior $$$/assent/assistance of obama,et al)–nothing new here but rather as a public justification(before the fact)for a pending israeli action/strike to eliminate the threat–hence reference to ” doctrine of informed consent “
