Mass Arrests (160 names) in Ahwaz, Continuous!

Iran is taking advantage of the attack to unite the ranks behind the besieged regime, but they have bigger worry than a single armed operation in Ahwaz as the incident is just another terror attack done by the Iranian regime.

Iranian regime fears a scarier nightmare, and this nightmare threatens Iranian regime’s existence. Nikki Haley told Iran after the attack: “Look in the mirror”, meaning the violence that happened in Ahwaz resembles it. Violence brings violence and the Iranian authorities are the ones that fund it and support it in Bahrain, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and other areas.

But the Ahwazis are paying a high price for the attack. Iranian regime continuous their systematic crack down on Ahwazi Arabs, continuously spreading fear among Ahwazis. Iran under the universalobligation must treat its own people fairly but are they following that? bearing in mind that the Iranian regime harass/arrests/torture and execute people for their political/cultural and environmental activities.

Even though Ahwaz region accounts for 90% of Iran’s Gross domestic product, standing as the backbone of Iran’s economy. But it is one of most underdeveloped borders in the world’s most polluted areas. Our sources in Ahwaz said around 400 people were arrested.

So, the arrestees include civil, cultural, religious, human rights and political activists.But the issue has gone further, and in some cases, children and women have been detained by detainees as hostages. Some of the detainees have been transferred to Tehran. Meanwhile, no one dares to inquire about courts or security forces departments because they are terrified that they may get arrested.

The security forces seem to do whatever they want with the Ahwazi Arab people as they can blame them with the “Military parade attack” label. They try to eradicate any kind of independent cultural and civil activity in the province by creating a climate of terror and imprisonment/torture and execution.

The names of some of the detainees who have been identified by Ahwazi activists inside Ahwaz are as follows:
