No fewer than 19 children were included in 185 people killed in protests across Iran since mid-September, following the death of a 22-year-old Kurdish woman, Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran’s police.
The Times of Israel reported on Monday that Amini was detained by the dreaded morality police for an alleged violation of strict Islamic dress codes for women.
Iranians have trooped out en masse across the country to demand justice for her since September 17 when she was buried.

The report revealed that protesters were killed as security forces tried to quell the people’s rage which is threatening the peace of the Asian country.

The report also said, “some 20 members of Iran’s various security forces and armed groups have also died in this timeframe.”
