Reuters: Up to 1,500 Dead in Iran’s Bloody Crackdown Against Nov. Protests

HeadlineDec 23, 2019

Reuters is reporting the death toll from Iran’s brutal crackdown on anti-government protests in November was significantly higher than previously reported, with as many as 1,500 people killed during the two weeks of demonstrations. The figure was provided by Iranian Interior Ministry officials. It says the victims included at least 400 women and more than a dozen teenagers. Reuters also says the orders for the crackdown came directly from Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who reportedly told a gathering of high-level officials, “The Islamic Republic is in danger. Do whatever it takes to end it. You have my order.”
