Iran Militia Raiding Homes, Witnesses Claim

June 27, 2009

Tehran (ChattahBox) – A US-based human rights group has accused Iran of allowing it’s volunteer-run Basij militia to raid homes, trash neighborhoods, and injure citizens in an attempt to stop further protests of the presidential election results.

According to witnesses, the militia group has been breaking into homes, assaulting various citizens, breaking possessions, and seizing satellite dishes in an attempt to keep anyone from watching foreign news sources for an International look on the government’s actions over the past two weeks.

After being banned from entering the streets for protests, citizens began climbing onto the rooftops of their homes, chanting through the night. The militia began using violent measures in an attempt to stop this, but so far the protests are still going strong.

“Witnesses are telling us that the Basijis are trashing entire streets and even neighbourhoods as well as individual homes trying to stop the nightly rooftop protest chants,” Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch was quoted by the BBC.

The raids continue amidst outrageous treatment of citizens who oppose the possibly fakes election results, in which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad once again took the position of president in Iran. So far, 17 people have been killed during the course of the past two weeks, including a young woman who was shot as she stepped out of her car, her death being caught on an amateur video that has spread widely across the Internet.
