Hadis Najafi, who was 20 years old, was shot and killed by security forces in Iran during protests over the death of Mahsa Amini.
At least 41 people have been killed as Iran continues to crack down on protests all over the country. These protests were started by the death of 22-year-old Amini after she was arrested for allegedly breaking Iran’s strict rules on hijab.
Even though Iranians are still angry about Mahsa Amini’s death after she was arrested by the morality police, a new wave of anger has been sparked by the killing of a female protester by security forces.
Iranian journalist Farzad Seifikaran told Al Arabiya that 20-year-old Hadis Najafi died of her wounds after being shot in the face and neck during protests in Karaj city last week.
On Sunday, the woman’s family put out a video of her funeral.
“She had just turned 20. Mahsa Amini broke her heart so much that it hurt. She said that she wouldn’t be quiet. “They killed her with six bullets,” the Najafi’s sister told an Iranian activist who was living in exile, Masih Alinejad.

Germany called in the Iranian ambassador a day after the EU protested the “widespread and disproportionate use of force” and Tehran called in the British and Norwegian ambassadors. This made things worse between the Islamic republic and Western countries.
