The Ahwazi Youth Union condemns the killing of young Emad Tawfiq by the Iranian occupation authorities

The Ahwazi Youth Union expresses its strong condemnation of the killing of young Ahwazi Emad Tawfiq by the Iranian security forces. This crime adds to the series of violations and assaults faced by the people of Ahwaz by the occupying Iranian authorities, which have been violating all human rights and dealing with the Ahwazi people with racism since April 20, 1925, when the Iranian enemy occupied Ahwaz and overthrew its sovereignty.

The killing of Emad Tawfiq reflects the deplorable state of human rights in Ahwaz and underscores the urgent need for international intervention to protect the Ahwazi people from ongoing repression and persecution. The Union calls on Ahwazi youth to work and struggle for the restoration of the national and human rights of the Ahwazi people until they attain their right to self-determination and independence.

The Union also calls on the international community and human rights organizations to take immediate action to investigate this crime and similar incidents and hold those responsible accountable. Additionally, it urges support for the Ahwazi people’s struggle for freedom, dignity, and the right to self-determination.

This incident comes at a time of increasing tensions in Ahwaz between the local population and the Iranian authorities, where the Ahwazi people suffer from systemic discrimination and harsh living conditions.
