Man Shot by Security Forces Declared Brain Dead

Iranwire – A 27-year-old man who was shot in the head by security forces on the one-year anniversary of Mahsa Amini’s death yesterday has been declared brain dead, IranWire reports.

The medical team in charge of Fardin Jafari’s case has made the decision to disconnect him from life support.

However, the security apparatus appears to be obstructing this action, prolonging the agonising situation for the victim’s family in an attempt to avoid public anger. 

Jafari, from Amini’s home town of Saqqez in the northwest of the country, was shot by government forces while travelling to the city of Baneh, near Aichi cemetery where the murdered young woman is buried.

This incident occurred in the vicinity of the petrol stations along Baneh Road, in the direction of the cemetery.

Jafari was initially taken to Khomeini Hospital, but later security forces transferred him to Shafa Hospital in Saqqez. 

Despite the efforts of medical professionals at Shafa Hospital, Jafari’s condition deteriorated to a point where there is now no hope of saving his life.
