In the recent protests in Khuzestan, which began on August 25, 2021, at least 1,000 people were arrested, according to the Kurdistan Human Rights Association.
According to the information available, police, special forces, civilian officials, security forces, intelligence officers and Basij agents attacked peaceful rallies in Khuzestan, beat people and arrested about a thousand people.
In some cities and even villages, security forces ransacked citizens’ homes at night and early in the morning, beating them and taking them to unknown locations.
In some cases, the demonstrators’ families have also been arrested for opposing the detention of their loved ones. It should be noted that during the popular protests in Khuzestan, at least eight people lost their lives in direct fire by Iranian forces.
The policies of the Iranian government have created a water crisis in the Arab regions of Khuzestan and other Arab areas, and the Arab people have taken to the streets to protest and spread their peaceful protests demanding their political, social and economic rights.
In return, the Islamic Republic of Iran massively suppressed the demonstrators. So far, eight people have been killed and at least 1,000 arrested.
