It’s about it

  • Violence broke out at a metro station in Tehran on Wednesday.

  • Police beat women who did not wear hijab properly.

  • Other videos show people running for the exits in panic.

On Wednesday evening, new, shocking images from Iran spread on social networks: numerous videos show how Iranian security forces opened fire on people in Tehran’s Shariati metro station as train cars passed by and beat women with batons who did not wear the obligatory hijab. The authenticity of the pictures was confirmed by the militant Iranian opposition movement People’s Mujahideen Organization (in translation People’s Mujahideen).

The footage shows people on one of the crowded platforms fleeing towards the exits as gunshots rang out from the other side. Many people fell, others stepped on them. Some of the women in the wagon took hats out of their pockets and put them on to avoid being beaten. Another scene shows regime forces beating a woman while she screams, “I’m going shopping!”

“The fact that it is now a widespread terrorization of people, including those who are not protesting, shows how big the protests are – and how big the regime’s fear is,” Iranian journalist Gilda Sahebi commented on one of the videos.

“This is the year Khomeini will be overthrown!”
