A 21-year-old man named Houman Abdollahi, who was injured yesterday during the public protests in Sanandaj, Kurdistan province, passed away hours later due to the severity of his injuries after being taken to Sanandaj’s Kowsar Hospital.

The military-security forces initially wounded Abdollahi with shotgun pellets. They then hit him with batons and gave him an electric shock during the protests in the Hassan Abad neighbourhood of Sanandaj.

Later, civilians took the tortured young man to the Kowsar Hospital, where he lost his life.

According to the videos published on social media last night, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces raided houses in the Hassan Abad neighbourhood of Sanandaj and opened fire on civilians.

The forces also beat and arrested several civilians and took them to an undisclosed location.

Reportedly, the IRGC forces took Abdollahi’s body from his family on their way to the cemetery. They took the body to the 28th Infantry Division of Kurdistan; a military base in Sanandaj.

Hours later, the body was returned to the family and buried in the Hassan Abad neighbourhood with the large presence of security forces.

According to the statistics compiled by the Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN), since the beginning of the nationwide uprising of the people of Iran after the government murder of Zhina Mahsa Amini, forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran killed at least 114 Kurdish civilians, including 12 children, in public protests in the cities and villages of Kurdistan and other regions of Iran.
