Girl massacre: poisoned to close schools

Hundreds of girls were poisoned for a specific purpose: to close girls’ schools. This is what happened in Qom, one of Iran’s main religious cities, and in Borujerd. Regarding the incident, it would be the Deputy Minister of Health’s first confessions, even if the outline of the story was vague. However, the brutality of the Iranian authorities seems to be manifested once again, with the intent to bloody suppress opposition and silence women.

Since the end of November, local media began reporting that hundreds of 10-year-old girls died of poisoning in schools in the city of Qom. According to the Irna news agency, on February 14, the parents of the students gathered in front of the governor’s office to “ask for an explanation”. Hence the first admissions. “It turned out that some people wanted all schools, especially girls’ schools, to be closed,” Deputy Health Minister Youness Panahi said. He explained that the poisoning – he later explained – was caused by “chemical compounds unavailable for military use and neither infectious nor non-infectious”. The intelligence and education ministries said they were simply working together to find the source of the poisoning.

There is a similar story in Borujerd, where more than 90 high school students have gone to the hospital with symptoms of poisoning in the past 48 hours, according to BBC Persian.These events take place at a time when Iran is shaken by protests following the death of Mahsa Amini, who was detained by the morality police for violating the hijab obligation. Masih Alinejad, a well-known Iranian activist who emigrated abroad, said: “The poisoning of female students is the revenge of the terrorist regime in the Islamic Republic against the brave women who defy the hijab obligation and shake up Khamenei’s Berlin Wall.”
