This was reported by Al Jazirah and Reuters with reference to the Fars agency.
An Iranian official called the deaths “suspicious” and the protests “illegal.” It is noted that this is the first confirmation of the dead during the rallies due to the death of Mahsa Amini.
“One resident was killed by the type of weapon not used [іранськими] armed forces Terrorist groups want to kill, so families must take care of their children“, said the governor.
Iranian woman Mahsa Amini died after falling into a coma. Before that, she was detained by the “morality police” for wearing a hijab incorrectly, Reuters writes.
Police said Amina suffered a heart attack after being taken to the “education” ward. Relatives of the Iranian woman deny that she suffered from any heart disease.
This sparked protests by Iranians on social media and in the streets on September 16. Videos of protesters chanting “Death to the dictator,” referring to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, circulated online. Iranian women post videos of themselves cutting their hair and burning their hijabs.
Under Iran’s Sharia (Islamic law), introduced after the 1979 revolution, women are required to cover their hair and wear long, loose-fitting clothes to hide their figure. Violators face a public reprimand, fine or arrest. Iran is still trying to enforce this law.
