Taliban Rebels Scatter Kabul’s Women Protests over Iranian Girl’s Death
The Taliban fighters scattered the protests of women in Kabul by opening fire who were marching for the killing of Mahsa Amini, a young Iranian girl.
This march was held on Thursday by a number of women in protest against the murder of this Iranian girl in front of the Iranian embassy in Kabul.
Protesters chanted the slogans “women, life and freedom”, “Iran stood, now it’s our turn” and “from Kabul to Iran, say no to dictatorship”.
As reported, within the minutes that the protests began, the Taliban dispersed the women by opening fire.
Meanwhile, it is not the first time that the Taliban use bullets against the civil and peaceful protest of women.
Amini, 22, from the northwestern Kurdish city of Saqez, was arrested on Sept. 13 in Tehran for “unsuitable attire” by the morality police who enforce the Islamic Republic’s strict dress code.
She died three days later in hospital after falling into a coma, sparking the first big show of opposition on Iran’s streets since authorities crushed protests against a rise in gasoline prices in 2019.
