Iran security forces attack people dancing in the streets

In the evening of Thursday 19 Aban (November 10), the Rasht Municipality Square was the scene of a confrontation between the security forces and the people who had gathered in this square.

According to the pictures and videos published on social networks, many women were without hijab in this gathering alongside men.

It can be seen in the pictures, with the increase in the crowd and the dancing of a group of these people, motorcyclists approached this group and tried to disperse them, but they faced the opposition of the crowd.

Security forces in plainclothes shot and fired tear gas after the anti-government slogans of the crowd. Some sources have reported that a young girl was injured in tonight’s rally in Rasht Municipality Square.

A user wrote: “We were dancing in Rasht Municipality, there were many people and everyone was very happy.

The officers drove a motorcycle and ran over a father and shot several people with arrows. A girl was also shot in the head.”

Protests in Iran raged on streets into Thursday with demonstrators remembering a bloody crackdown in the country’s southeast, even as the nation’s intelligence minister and army chief renewed threats against local dissent and the broader world.

Meanwhile, a top official in Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard claimed it had “managed to achieve” having so-called hypersonic missiles, without providing any evidence.

The protests in Iran, sparked by the Sept. 16 death of a 22-year-old woman after her detention by the country’s morality police, have grown into one of the largest sustained challenges to the nation’s theocracy since the chaotic months after its 1979 Islamic Revolution.

At least 328 people have been killed and 14,825 others arrested in the unrest, according to Human Rights Activists in Iran, a group that’s been monitoring the protests over their 54 days. Iran’s government for weeks has remained silent on casualty figures while state media counterfactually claims security forces have killed no one.
