The largest image of Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, was burned during protests over the death of Mahsa Amini

Unprecedented footage has shown protesters burning images of Iran’s regime’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the late Revolutionary Guards commander Qasem Soleimani.

The demonstrations have already left a balance of at least 36 people deaddue to the repression of the State security forces.

Protests erupted a week ago in Iran following the death of a woman detained by morale police, a New York-based NGO reported.

Mahsa Amini, 22, was arrested by the morality police on 13 September in Tehran for wearing “inappropriate clothing”. She passed away three days later in hospital, and her death sparked a wave of demonstrations across the country.

According to activists, he received a fatal blow to the head, but Iranian officials denied this and announced an investigation.

A state media reported 17 people killed in these demonstrations, but several NGOs, including the New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI), give much higher figures.

“The authorities have recognized the death of at least 17 people, but independent sources speak of 36″ deaths, CHRI tweeted Thursday night.

“Wait for the balance to go up. International leaders need to put pressure on Iranian officials to authorize demonstrations without resorting to lethal weapons,” he added.

After the death of Mahsa Amini, the demonstrations began in the main cities of Iran, including Tehran, Isfahan (center) or Mashhad (northeast).

Amnesty International recently denounced a “brutal crackdown” and warned that security forces fired on the crowd with rubber bullets and used tear gas and water cannons.
