<<Iranian forces shooting at faces and genitals of female protesters, medics say
Iranian security forces are targeting women at anti-regime protests with shotgun fire to their faces, breasts and genitals, according to interviews with medics across the country. Doctors and nurses - treating demonstrators in secret to avoid arrest - said they first ob-served the practice after noticing that women often arrived with dif-ferent wounds to men, who more commonly had shotgun pellets in their legs, buttocks and backs. While an internet blackout has hidden much of the bloody crackdown on protesters, photos provided by me-dics to the Guardian showed devastating wounds all over their bo-dies from so-called birdshot pellets, which security forces have fired on people at close range. Some of the photos showed people with dozens of tiny <shot> balls lodged deep in their flesh. The Guardian has spoken to 10 medical professionals who warned about the se-riousness of the injuries that could leave hundreds of young Iranians with permanent damage. Shots to the eyes of women, men and children were particularly common, they said. One physician from the central Isfahan province said he believed the authorities were targe-ting men and women in different ways <because they wanted to destroy the beauty of these women>. <I treated a woman in her early 20s, who was shot in her genitals by two pellets. Ten other pellets were lodged in her inner thigh. These 10 pellets were easily removed, but those two pellets were a challenge, because they were wedged in between her urethra and vaginal opening,> the physician said. <There was a serious risk of vaginal infection, so I asked her to go to a trusted gynaecologist. She said she was protesting when a group of about 10 security agents circled around and shot her in her genitals and thighs.> Traumatised by his experience, the physician - who like all medical professionals cited in this article spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals - said he had a hard time dealing with the stress and pain he witnessed. <She could have been my own daughter.> Some of the other medical professionals accused security forces, including the feared pro-regime Basij militia, of ignoring riot control practices, such as firing weapons at feet and legs to avoid damaging vital organs. One doctor from Karaj, a city near Tehran, said security forces <shoot at the faces and private body parts of women because they have an inferiority complex. And they want to get rid of their sexual complexes by hurting these young people.> The ministry of foreign affairs was approached to comment on the allegations made by the medics but has yet to respond.>>

<<People flock to streets after execution of young protester in Iran
News Center - People have been holding protests in Iran and Rojhilat since 22-year-old Kurdish woman Jina Mahsa Amini was killed by Iranian so-called morality police. People from all strata, particularly women, university students and activists, have taken to the streets to protest the Iranian regime for about three months. Yesterday, the Iranian authorities executed a young protester named Mohsen Shekari. After the execution of the young protesters, people flocked to the streets in many cities and provinces of Iran and Rojhilat such as Sistan and Baluchestan, Tehran, Mashhad, Isfahan, Shiraz, Ahvaz, Kerman, Mazandaran Province, Rasht, Tabriz, Sari, Qom and many more, to protest the execution.

<<Iran sanctioned following execution of first Mahsa Amini protestor
Iran was slapped with new sanctions Friday and activists called for fresh protests after the Islamic republic carried out its first execution over demonstrations that have shaken the regime for nearly three months. Mohsen Shekari, 23, was hanged Thursday after being convicted of <moharebeh> -- or <enmity against God> -- after what rights groups denounced as a show trial. The judiciary said Shekari was arrested after blocking a Tehran street and wounding a member of the Basij, a paramilitary force linked to Iran's powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
<Mohsen's execution is a reminder of the loss of our loved ones, who ... just like Mohsen, were tried in minutes-long sham trials and, in the absence of lawyers and without having a chance to defend them-selves, were sentenced to death,> they said in a statement publis-hed by US-based Human Rights Activists News Agency.
Calls for more protests
Shekari's body was buried 24 hours after his execution in the presen-ce of a few family members and security forces in Tehran's Behesht-e Zahra cemetery, the 1500tasvir social media monitor reported. Over-night, protesters took to the street where he was arrested, shouting, <They took away our Mohsen and brought back his body,> in a video shared by 1500tasvir. Elsewhere, chants of <Death to the dictator> and <Death to Sepahi> were heard at a demonstration in Tehran's Chitgar district, in reference to Khamenei and Revolutionary Guards.
1500tasvir said Shekari's execution happened with such haste that his family had still been waiting to hear the outcome of his appeal.
It posted harrowing footage of what it said was the moment his family learnt the news outside their Tehran home, with a woman doubled up in pain and grief, repeatedly screaming his name.
Hamed Esmaeilion, an Iranian-Canadian activist who has organised mass protests in Berlin, Paris and other cities, said more demonstra-tions would be held at the weekend. <Regardless of belief and ideology, let's join these gatherings in protest against the brutal execution of #MohsenShekari,> he tweeted.
'Chilling effect'
UN rights chief Volker Turk described the execution as <very troub-ling and clearly designed to send a chilling effect to the rest of the protesters.> >>

<<Iran carries out first known hanging over protests
Iran carried out its first known execution Thursday over the protests that have shaken the regime since September, hanging a 23-year-old man after a legal process denounced as a show trial by rights groups. Mohsen Shekari was convicted and sentenced to death for blocking a street and wounding a paramilitary during the early phase of the protests in mid-September. At least a dozen other people are currently at risk of imminent execution after being sentenced to hang over the protests in recent weeks, human rights groups warned.>>

<<Sister of Iran's supreme leader condemns protest crackdown
A sister of Iran's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, has spoken out against his bloody crackdown on nationwide demonstrations, saying her brother's <despotic caliphate> has brought nothing but suffering, according to a letter published by her exiled son. The letter came a day after the country's former president Mohammad Khatami also issued a rare statement to voice support for the protest movement, adding pressure on the regime from powerful political figures. In her letter, Badri Hosseini Khamenei, who lives in Iran, called on the country's feared Revolutionary Guards and <mercenaries> to lay down their weapons as soon as possible and <join the people>. She said she would herself join the rallies were it not for her poor health.
<I think it is appropriate now to declare that I oppose my brother's actions and I express my sympathy with all mothers mourning the crimes of the Islamic Republic,> she wrote in the note that was shared on the Twitter account of her son, Mahmoud Moradkhani, and dated December 2022.
<The crimes of this system, the suppression of any dissenting voice, the imprisonment of the most educated and the most caring youth of this land, the most severe punishments, and the large-scale execu-tions began from the very beginning,> Khamenei said in her letter. She suggested that she had decided to speak publicly after her daughter, Farideh Moradkhani, who also lives in Tehran, was de-tained last month. Moradkhani had long-criticised the regime, inclu-ding in a video message released after her arrest that accused the government of not being ,loyal to any of its religious principles.
<Losing a child and being away from your child is a great sadness for every mother,> Khamenei wrote of her daughter. <Many mothers were bereaved during the last four decades. I think it is appropriate now to declare that I oppose my brother's actions and I express my sympathy with all mothers mourning the crimes of the Islamic Repu-blic regime, from the time of [the former supreme leader Ruhollah] Khomeini to the current era of the despotic caliphate of Ali Khamenei. <My concern has always been and will always be the people, especially the women of Iran. I believe that the regime of the Islamic Republic of Khomeini and Ali Khamenei has brought nothing but suffering and oppression to Iran and Iranians.> She accused her brother of not listening to his people, and instead taking counsel from <his mercenaries and money-grubbers>. >>
