Video posts and other sources say that Iran’s regime is cracking down heavily on protests in the Kurdistan region of Iran. The protests over the killing of Mahsa Amini began in Kurdish areas because Amini was Kurdish and Kurds have long been suppressed in Iran.

Now, the protests have spread throughout Iran. However, the Iranian regime appears to be more careful about outright suppression and mass killing in Tehran and Farsi-speaking areas; it doesn’t want the center to rebel. Iran’s regime is instead focusing on massacring people in Baloch province and also in the Kurdistan region.

Recent reports say that Iran has dispatched masses of security forces to Sanandaj and that there are fears that people are being massacred. Amnesty International has said that it “is alarmed by the crackdown on protests in Sanandaj, Kurdistan province, amid reports of security forces using firearms and firing teargas indiscriminately, including into people’s homes.”
