Human rights organizations revealed that At least 342 people including 26 women and 43 kids died in Iran during the current unrest.

The turmoil started after 22-year-old Turkish woman Mahsa Amini died a few hours after getting tortured by Iran’s Morality police for not wearing proper clothes.

According to Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO) a Norwegian-based organization, protester killings had been reported in 23 of Iran’s 31 regions over the past two months.

“Of the 43 children, nine were girls and three were Afghan nationals. The 43 children were all under 18 years of age, but have not all been verified through document evidence,” the report said.

The province of Sistan and
Baluchestan reported the highest number of fatalities 123 followed by Tehran with 39, Mazandaran with 33, Kurdistan with 32, and Gilan with 23.

The report also said that Al least five people have been sentenced to death by the Iranian Judiciary.

The report also called Iran’s judiciary a part of a repressive system.
For what they referred to as the repression of protests, several Western nations levied a series of penalties on Iranian leaders and organizations.

However, Iran did not reveal any official death toll.
