History of teen murder
The killing and execution of teenagers and Iranian youth, men, and women of all ages and genders is not a strange phenomenon. From the day after the 1979 revolution, Iran’s ruling mullahs began to confiscate the democratic revolution of the Iranian people. In the meantime, they massacred anyone in their path. Iran’s historical memory does not forget the teenagers and children who executed in the 1980s for having a newspaper or magazine. The youth and teenagers who murdered and placed in anonymous graves for the most basic right, namely freedom.
The mullahs’ legacy for Iranian teenagers
For the past four decades, the mullahs’ dictatorial regime has brought addiction, child labor, forced dropouts, and even child trafficking to Iranian adolescents. Adolescents who were full of life experienced oppression and discrimination before playing with children at the beginning of their lives. Now, once again, as in the 1980s, their blood stained the streets, and Tulips budded from their blood.
These days and after the November 2019 uprising, the mullahs’ regime repeated the days of the 1980s by killing teenagers. Fear of the fate of the dictators who killed these innocent teenagers in adolescence and childhood also forced members of the clerical parliament to confess. Parvaneh Salahshouri, a member of the Mullah’s parliament from Tehran, announced on Monday, December 2, 2019, that “several teenagers killed during the protests.”

The mullahs’ criminal regime demanded 10 million tomans from his family to hand over the body of this martyr to his family. Then they handed over his body and threatened them not to provide information.
Teenagers were either buried secretly or demanded several million tomans from their families in exchange for their bodies’ delivery. On the other hand, by threatening and intimidating them, provided they did not interview foreign media and inform on social networks, they handed over their children’s bodies to their families.
In the regime of the mullahs, insolence and crime have reached the highest level of inhumanity. But the Iranian people, the families of these martyred teenagers, especially their mothers, will not be silent and will not give up their struggle together with the MEK Resistance Units until the overthrow of this bloody and corrupt dictatorship and the trial of all the leaders and perpetrators of murder and crime in this regime.
