Most of the martyrs were youth or teenagers. Among them were teenagers as young as 13 years old. Most were shot in the head or chest by the regime’s snipers. The regime is employing various ploys to try to conceal the actual number of martyrs. In many instances, suppressive forces refuse to hand over the bodies of the martyrs for independent autopsy or to their families.
The number of detainees is at least 7,000. The wave of arrests is ongoing. On November 15, on the second day of the uprising, the IRGC-affiliated Fars news agency said on the basis of “the initial assessments of a security institution” that “so far, about 1,000 people have been arrested during the recent unrest in the entire country.”
