Iran intensified its crackdown on nationwide protests against the death of Mahsa Amini, firing directly at protesting students in universities across the country on Saturday.
Students in Mashhad, Tehran, Isfahan, Zanjin and Tabriz, among other locations, protested against the Iranian government. In Tehran, protesters were reportedly arrested and taken away in ambulances. Multiple reports in recent weeks have claimed that Iranian forces were using ambulances to carry security forces and detainees so that protesters wouldn’t attack them.
Security forces were seen in footage shared on social media firing directly at crowds of protesters, including students.
