A young man from Ahvaz was shot dead by IRGC border guards in Rafi city.
According to “No to Prison – No to Execution”, Mohammad Savari, a married 30 years old and father to two daughters was targeted and shot 3 times in the back by the IRGC border guards. The incident happened in the Emam Reza border crossing which is located between Iraq and Rafi city. Mohammad Savari was transporting a few sheep.
He was first transferred to a hospital in Ahvaz but lost his life on Friday, June 26, 2020.
Though there are several oil companies near Rafi, only 10% of the company’s workers are indigenous. Poverty and unemployment have led the people in the region to turn to selling livestock in the Iraqi borders to earn their living.
It is to be noted that Mohammad’s father, Kazem Savari, was executed in 1996 on charges of acting against national security and “Moharebeh” (waging war against god) by blowing up oil pipelines.
Earlier, on June 27, 2020, IRGC fired at a Toyota truck which was carrying oil in Pakistan borders. The driver was hit by a bullet and fell down into the Mandboloo Valley near Mirduk.
Over the years, IRGC forces have repeatedly murdered in such brutal ways.
The IRGC border guards fire with no fear of their actions’ consequences. They target and kill their fellow compatriots who carry fuel, goods, or who are drivers, forced to turn into such jobs to earn their living.
The reason behind such hard, dangerous and temporary jobs is nothing other than the Revolutionary Guards, who have hoarded the whole country’s resources and income.
