The statement of the International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights (IOPHR) regarding the use of chemical poisons by Basij groups.

Shabtabnews – In a statement the International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights (IOPHR) condemned the use of chemical poisons by Basij groups against young female students . The statement stated that : “Reliable news outlets have reported the death of at least one young female student, as a result of poisoning caused by the Basiji groups affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps against a number of girls’ schools in various cities in Iran.These attacks have resulted in severe poisoning of hundreds of female students and the death of at least one student named Fatemeh Rezaei, who was born in Qom.”

IOPHR also stated that : “while drawing the attention of all international bodies and authorities, especially the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the United Nations, the International Children’s Fund, UNICEF, and the European Union, the IOPHR would like to point to the very unusual and dangerous situation that has occurred for these Iranian children. Especially as children are innocent and vulnerable wherever they are in the world, and have no ability to defend themselves against such attacks. Given the above, we believe that holding a special meeting of the Human Rights Council to deal with this new inhuman crime by the Revolutionary Guards, which is yet another example of a crime against humanity, can be an important measure to protect innocent Iranian children.”
