IRAN - At least 458 people killed in the ongoing nationwide protests

December 7, 2022:

At least 458 people including 63 children and 29 women have been killed in the ongoing nationwide protests in Iran. The rise in numbers relates to now confirmed killings that took place in the first two months. Authorities have also reported death sentences being issued against five protesters, bringing the total number to 11 people.
Iran Human Rights considers the execution of protesters to be in violation of all human rights laws and standards, and calls on the international community to react appropriately. Director Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam said: “Issuing death sentences in show trials which lack minimum fair trial standards is a continuation of the plan for the extrajudicial killing of protesters and must be met with a strong reaction by the international community.”
According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, at least 458 people including 63 children have been killed by security forces in the nationwide protests so far. Of the 63 children, nine were girls. The 63 children were all under 18 years of age, but have not all been verified through document evidence. Iran Human Rights is working to obtain confirmation of their ages. None of the recorded deaths took place in the past days.
Protesters have been killed in 26 provinces, with the most reported in Sistan and Baluchistan, Kurdistan, Western Azerbaijan, Tehran, Mazandaran and Kermanshah respectively.
Deaths have been recorded in 26 provinces: Sistan and Baluchistan: 128 people; Kurdistan: 53 people; West Azerbaijan: 53 people;  Tehran: 46 people; Mazandaran: 37 people;  Kermanshah: 25 people; Gilan: 25 people; Alborz: 18 people; Isfahan: 14 people; Khuzestan: 10 people; Fars: 8 people; Khorasan-Razavi: 7 people;  Zanjan: 5 people; East Azerbaijan: 4 people; Lorestan: 3 people; Markazi: 3 people; Qazvin: 3 people; Hamedan: 3 people; Kohgiluyeh and Boyer Ahmad: 2 people; Ardabil: 2 people; Ilam: 2 people;  Bushehr: 2 people;  Hormozgan: 2 person; Semnan: 1 person; Kerman: 1 person; Golestan: 1 person.
The most number of deaths were recorded on 21, 22 and 30 September (Baluchistan’s “Bloody Friday”). November 4 was the bloodiest day last month with 21 recorded deaths.
The death toll is an absolute minimum. Reports of protester killings in the last few days are still being investigated. Iran Human Rights has received a high volume of reports of deaths which it continues to investigate with security considerations and internet disruptions. The actual number of people killed therefore, is certainly higher.
