As the protests in Iran enter their third month, Iran International unveiled a document in which a senior Iranian army commander called for daily reports on the arrests of army personnel or their families during the protests, explaining concern within Iran’s military staff over the defection of army personnel and their involvement in the protests.
Meanwhile, official Iranian media reported that nine members of the security forces, the Basij, and border guards were killed in clashes, shootings and stabbings in several cities witnessing anti-regime protests on Thursday.
In this regard, reports from Iran today, Friday, indicate that authorities have shut down internet service in several cities or severely restricted access to it, the Iran International website reported.
It comes as protesters in Iran today chanted slogans denouncing the regime during the funeral of a boy whose family said he was killed by security forces, a human rights group and an observatory said.
Hundreds of people took to the streets of the city of Iza in southwestern Iran during the funeral of about 10-year-old Kian Pervalak, according to video recording released by the Norway-based Human Rights Organization in Iran and the 1500 Photographs Observatory.
In the protest movement that began after the death of young woman Mahsa Amini on September 16, funerals often turned into demonstrations after she was stopped by Tehran’s vice squad for not adhering to strict dress codes.
For its part, Iranian state television today reported that seven people were buried, including a nine-year-old boy, adding that they were killed by “terrorists” on motorcycles.
For its part, the Iranian human rights organization confirmed on Wednesday that the death toll in the Iranian protests had risen to 342, including 43 children and 26 women. In a statement, she added that among the dead were 43 children and 26 women.
