Azadeh Zarbi was one of the women shot to death by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in November 2019 Iran protests.
Azadeh Zarbi lived in Shahriar and studied at the Azad University of Qal’eh Hassan Khan (Qods township).
Qal’eh Hassan Khan, a town in the periphery of Tehran, was one of the hotbeds of Iran protests in November 2019.
Azadeh Zarbi was found dead with her throat shattered by a bullet.
Her lifeless body was handed over to her family with a few days of delay after they forced the family to write pledges not to publicize about the manner of her death.
Due to the extremely repressive conditions and the regime’s efforts to conceal its crimes against humanity, no further details are available on her.
Over 1500 people including 400 women and 29 children were killed during the November 2019 protests in Iran.
In a December 2019 report, Reuters said Iranian interior ministry officials also stated that 1500 protesters were killed during the three to four days of protests across the country. According to the report, Khamenei gathered his top security and government officials together, and issued an order: Do whatever it takes to stop them.
Iranian officials denied Reuters’ death toll and after seven months, implied that about 200 to 225 people were killed.
At least 4,000 protesters were arrested during the November 2019 protests and many of them were sentenced to heavy prison terms and even death.
