IMHRO: Three Ahwazi Arabs killed under torture

Iranian Minorities’ Human Rights Organisation (IMHRO)



Sources in Ahwaz reported that that Mr. Naser Albushoka (Darafshan) 19 years old Ahwazi Arab, died under torture by the hand of Iranian security service.

He was arrested in Naderi Street in the city of Ahwaz in south west of Iran, just last week. His family saw sign of torture all over his body including deep head and neck injuries.

Mohammad Kabi was killed by security service officers in shush and Reza Maghamasi was killed by security service in Dezful. They buried them in secret.

Recent unrest followed when Arab leaders inside and outside of Iran asked Ahwazi Arab boycotting the Iranian parliament election. Many Ahwazi Arab activists - mainly student - started to write on walls with regard to boycott of election. Iranian security service is ordered to crack down and calm the situation, sources told IMHRO.

Press TV confession show

In recent months pressure on Ahwazi Arabs has been increased. Iranian state backed satellite channel the Press TV published confession of few Ahwazi activist. As always all these confession were taken under extreme torture.

 The fate of these prisoners who showed by press TV is still not clear. Their list of names is:

    1-Hadi rashedi son of mir hamzeh rashedi from Ramshir ( Khalafieh)
2- hashem shabani
3- rahman Asakereh
4- Mohammad Ali Amouri
5- ja]ber Albu shokah
6- Mokhtar Al bu shokah


IMHRO condemns treatment of Ahwazi Arabs by Iranian security service. Iranian government should release all the political prisoners in Ahwaz. We request from international community to stand up for the right of Ahwazi Arabs in Iran.


Ahwaz has population of at least 5 million people and has huge oil and gas reserves and situated in south west of Iran and the North East side of Arabic Gulf. Reza Shah Pahlavi occupied Arabistan region in 1925 and murdered its ruler sheikh Khazal. After Reza shah sided by Hitler, allied forces replaced him with his son Mohammed Reza Shah. Shah and Islamic regime after way both continued the policy of suppression and displacement of Ahwazi Arabs.
