This video shows the heartbreak of a little boy whose father died in the wake of alleged government use of a “green gas” against people who are protesting against the Iranian regime.
The attacks, which took place in the Kurdish cities of Javanrud and Piranshahr, reportedly caused skin irritation, nausea and other symptoms during a protest.
One of those that died during the protest was Taher Azizi, after he was killed in Piranshahr following an attack by security agents. He died at the same time as a 16-year-old boy named Karvan Qaderi.
It is unclear exactly how they were killed.
The short video shows the tearful boy shouting to the crowd who replies, before the child covers his head in his hands to hide his grief.
Iranian forces have been cracking down on waves of civil disorder following the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, from Saqqez, Kurdistan Province, who was on a visit to Tehran when she was arrested by morality police, accused of violating hijab rules on 13th September.
She was allegedly beaten while in custody and spent the following days in a coma in the hospital before succumbing in the ICU on 16th September.
The clinic where she was treated said in a now-deleted social media post that she had been admitted brain-dead.
Alleged medical scans of her skull leaked by hackers showed that she had suffered bone fractures, haemorrhages, and brain oedema.
Independent Iranian media have claimed that Mahsa’s medical records showing her history of heart disease were faked by the Iranian government.
Numbers differ regarding how many people have been killed since the protests began.
The ongoing protests in Iran have killed at least 419 people, including 51 children, and injured at least 1,160, according to independent estimates.
It is also understood that more than 17,500 people have been arrested so far.
