These protestors are identified as Mohsen Gheysari, Saeid Mohammadi and Amir Fouladi.

“Anti-riot forces shot at a group of protestors on Taleghani Street in Ilam, killing Gheysari with two bullets and severely injuring another person”, said a relative of the killed civilian.

The source added that the protestor’s body was buried on 22 September in Ilam with the large presence of his family and relatives chanting the slogan “Death to the dictator”.

In addition, various sources reported that at least three protesters were killed in Eslamabad-e Gharb, Kermanshah province.

According to these sources, the anti-riot forces opened fire on a group of protesters in front of the governorate building, killing at least two protesters by the names of Amir Fouladi, 15, and Saeid Mohammadi, 25, on the spot.
