Photos of two Ahwazis martyred by Iran

These are the pictures of two young Ahwazi Arab men murdered by Iranian security forces during recent anti-government demonstrations: Abdolah Saidi-Nawaseri (age 17) and Asmad Mojadam (age 24).

An unknown number of Ahwazi Arabs have been summarily executed by Iran in the past two weeks following peaceful demonstrations in Eid-al-Adha. The British Ahwazi Friendship Society (BAFS) has received the names of five unarmed Ahwazis killed by the Iranian regime during the protests: Ahmad Naseri (age 22), Jaber Sawari, Sayed Chabawi, Abdolah Saidi-Nawaseri (17) and Asmad Mojadam (24).

There has been a complete global media blackout on the killings and mass arrests of Ahwazi Arabs and violent state repression. This is in contrast to this week's bombings in Ahwaz, which are believed to be the work of the Baseej paramilitaries seeking to justify the oppression of Arabs and portray the Iran state as the victim instead of the perpetrator of terrorism. Bomb attacks by the quasi-military religious vigilante group are increasingly common in Iran.
