There is a critical situation in Oshnoya
Reports from Oshnoyeh indicate that in addition to the complete shutdown of the Internet, landline phones have also faced widespread disruption in this city, and since Saturday morning, military forces have established a security atmosphere throughout the city.
On Thursday and Friday, massive protests in Oshnoye caused the control of parts of the city to fall into the hands of the protesters and the security forces were forced to withdraw from some neighborhoods.
The blackout of the phone and internet in OShahnoye has made it very difficult to inform about the events of this city.
Some Kurdish activists say that since Saturday morning, widespread arrests have begun in Oshnoye and there is a possibility that the repression in this city will become much more violent.
It is not yet clear how many people have been killed in Oshnoye during the protests of the last week.
According to reports from local sources, many local officials and security forces loyal to the Iranian government who lived in Ashnoye have moved their families out of the city.
In a video published on social networks, images of one of the roads outside the city can be seen, which is said to be one of the main routes into and out of the city, and its control has fallen into the hands of the protesters.
It is not clear whether the protesters were still present on these routes on Saturday morning.
Oshnoye is a small city with a population of less than 100,000.
Iranian media report on IRGC artillery attacks on Iraqi Kurdistan region
Iranian news agencies, by publishing videos and reports, say that the ground forces of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps have targeted the Kurdistan region of Iraq in artillery attacks.
These news agencies say that the IRGC’s recent action was to deal with the “entry of armed teams and a large amount of weapons” by Komleh and Democratic groups into Iran’s border cities.
The Revolutionary Guards claimed that the entry of these weapons was to create unrest in Iran.
Civil activists of Iran believe that the IRGC and the government of Iran are planning to highlight the role of Kurdish armed groups and the risk of disintegration of Iran to end the protests, especially in the central regions of Iran.
According to human rights activists, at least 54 people were killed in last week’s protests, Iran’s state media has confirmed half of this number.
The protests started after the news of the death of Zhina (Mahsa) Amini was published on September 16. The 22-year-old Kurdish girl who was arrested in Tehran under the pretext of hijab, and according to her family, fell into a coma due to torture and died in the hospital three days later.
