The ACHR condemn the mass execution against Ahwazi innocent people and calls for global condemnations against Iranian terrorist regime and warn all the international organizations focusing on the legal and humanitarian aspects of silence towards what is happening in Ahwaz. The ACHR remind them all that if the world does not speak up against these crimes, the consequences will be grossly grave.
