Tehran, Iran, Jul. 26 – Protests erupted once again this morning in the Kurdish town of Oshnavieh, northwest Iran, following clashes between angry people and State Security Forces on Monday, during which two anti-government demonstrators were shot dead by police.

Monday’s demonstration in Oshnavieh, during which participants chanted anti-government slogans, was in support of the more than 200 people arrested in the nearby towns of Mahabad, Piranshahr, and Marivan, according to local Kurdish websites.

Two individuals identified as Heydar Abdollahzadeh and Amr Amini were killed when State Security Forces opened fire on protestors.

The killings led to the latest round of street-battles between angry people and agents of the SSF on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s edition of the state-run daily Jomhouri Islami stated that “trouble-makers” were responsible for the unrest, adding that two people were wounded, but it did not mention the killings.
