Iranian police shot and killed a 17-year-old boy from a distance of feet during the protest | Abroad

The death toll from Iran’s protests continues to rise. This week it was announced that a 17-year-old schoolboy had been killed during an anti-government demonstration. The boy was allegedly hit by a bullet just one meter away, according to a doctor’s report.

A day after the protest, Abolfazl Adinazadeh’s parents were summoned to pick up their son from the police station. When they arrived, they found him dead. Authorities have not yet commented on the teen’s death. Abul Fadl’s father is looking for answers but can’t find them. At his son’s funeral, he said, “What crime did he commit that you sprayed his stomach with 24 bullets?”

Iranian police also attended the funeral and asked the bereaved relatives to remove the party videos from their phones. His parents were pressured to claim that the teen was a member of the Basij, an Iranian militia, to point out that he was killed by protesters. In fact, Abolfazl joined a demonstration in Mashhad on October 8.

Numerous protests began after Mahsa Amini’s death. Mahsa, 22, died after being arrested for improperly wearing a headscarf. Protests have been going on for weeks, and rights groups have said at least 200 have been killed. Often among these victims are young people.

A spokeswoman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ravina Shamdasani, said Tuesday that the violent response of security forces to protesters is not abating. Additionally, she said, reports of arbitrary arrests, killings and detentions of children were “extremely disturbing.” According to some sources, up to 23 children were killed by live bullets and fatal beatings in at least seven governorates. A number of schools were also raided and children were arrested by the security forces.
