A video has been leaked showing the inmates in Qezel Hessar prison in mid August when at least 11 prisoners were killed after the prison guards opened fire. The video published by Hrana shows inmates protesting executions of prisoners by the Iranian regime henchmen. On August 18, following the transfer of their cellmates to the execution hall, a large number of inmates in ward two of Qezel Hessar prison staged a protest. Anti-riot Special Forces attacked them and immediately opened fire, killing and injuring dozens of inmates. Suppressive forces also attacked the prisoners’ families who had gathered outside the prison to protest against the killing of their children. The forces tried to disperse them by firing teargas and shooting in the air.
