Land Confiscation and Population Transfer by Iranian Regime Continues

By Hossein Bouazar

Since 2005, Iranian regime authorities continuous the land confiscation on a daily basis. On the 13th of July, Iranian regime authorities attacked Bromi district and destroyed the Ahwazi Arabs homes. Broom is an area with 50 oil wells, located in Ahwaz Mashour road (also known as Mahshahr), about 13 km from Ahwaz city.  Resistance of the people of Broom to the security forces during the destruction of the homes of some Arab citizens.

Broom is an area with 50 oil wells, located on Ahwaz Mashour road (Mahshahr), 13 km from Ahwaz city and in the village of Mashrahed.

It is noteworthy that the Iranian occupation authorities have taken over very large areas since the beginning of the occupation under the titles of multiple projects cane sugar and commercial areas.

In fact, between 1980 and 1995 Iranian regime has taken over more than one and a half million hectares only under the title Cane Sugar Projects, which is equivalent to more than twice the Kingdom of Bahrain in terms of space.

From time to time, the Iranian government creates settlements on the Ahwazi lands to bring tens of thousands of people from the northern Persian cities of Iran to change the population structure and consolidate the occupation.

The Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights strongly condemns the land confiscation by the Iranian revolutionary guards and judiciary system. We (ACHR) call on United Nations to put pressure on the Iranian authorities to stop the land confiscation scheme and arbitrary actions as the Khameniei’s project is to change the demographic of Al-Ahwaz.
