On September 30, 2022, the Islamic Regime’s forces opened fire on peaceful protesters in Zahedan, the capital city of Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan Province, and the home to many people from the Baloch ethnic group.
Amnesty International has accused Iranian authorities of killing dozens of people that day, firing live ammunition on innocent civilians in a move that shocked the country.
The Baloch Activist Campaign has released a report on how many children were killed in the massacre, which has been named “Bloody Friday”. According to the report, 13 children, including two babies, were killed by Regime forces in Zahedan on September 30. One of these children was Omid Sarani (13) who was shot in the chest while marching in a peaceful demonstration. He was not able to overcome his injuries and died shortly after being taken to hospital.
