Iran Human Rights Society, according to a reliable source, on Sunday, September 2, 12 prisoners were taken collectively to execute the death sentence and none of them returned to prison.

Names of 5 executed prisoners
These 5 people were Asif Shibak, from Zahedan and resident of Mashhad, Saeed Shibak, 20 years old, from Zahedan . Ramadan Mazar Zahi from Zahedan and resident of Mashhad and Awad Bilrani from and resident of Zahedan and another prisoner whose name is unknown.
Haalvsh, who published this news for the first time, had announced the possibility of execution of ten prisoners. It has now been determined that the number of executions was 12 people.
The human rights society of Iran warns about the large number of executions in Iran. We ask the United Nations Human Rights Council to take urgent action to stop the execution in Iran.
It is worth mentioning that during the first days to October 14th, despite nationwide protests on the streets, at least 21 people have been executed so far. This is while much news of executions is not published at all. And the news of it does not leak out from the prisons, so the real number of executions is much higher than the announced execution.
Including the execution of these 12 prisoners, at least 374 prisoners have been executed since the beginning of this year. And since the beginning of 2022, at least 470 prisoners have been executed.
