Tehran, Jan. 05 – A young man was killed by agents of Iran’s State Security Forces (SSF) in the town of Sanandaj (western province of Kurdistan) after he came to the aid of a young woman being assaulted by the SSF agents earlier this week.

The young man only identified by his first name Afshin reportedly attempted to defend the young woman and pushed back the security forces allowing her to escape. He then ran away since the agents were armed.

Witnesses have said that agents pursued and caught up with Afshin in Cyrus Street and rather than arresting him, shot him at point-blank. He is said to have been pronounced dead at hospital.

Iranian authorities have officially announced 109 incidents were SSF agents have fatally shot citizens at point blank throughout the past year alone. The actual figure is believed to be much higher.
