Clerical regime sends several prisoners to the gas chamber

On Tuesday, July 21, the mullahs' regime executed a number of prisoners through suffocation in a gas chamber in Vakil-Abad prison in Mashad, capital of the northeastern province of Khorassan.

One of the victims was identified as Nasser Naddaf, from the village of Kadkan in Torbat Heidarieh, Khorassan Province.

On July 15, in a mysterious fire in the same prison, 20 inmates were killed and 41 injured.

Earlier in July, the clerical regime hanged 15 prisoners in public in the city of Sarakhs in Khorassan. Since the beginning of June, 32 people are known to have been executed in Iran.

These executions bring to at least 250 the number public executions since Mohammad Khatami became the mullahs' president.

The Iranian Resistance draws the attention of international human rights organizations to the flagrant violations of human rights in Iran, including the use of the most criminal methods, such as execution by gassing, and calls for the condemnation of the theocratic regime ruling Iran.
