The Late Seleimani has been accused of killing 1,500 Iranians and 9,000 during Iranian protests in 2019, according to a tweet by the Department of State
A month ago, Qassem Soleimani orchestrated the Iranian regime’s brutal crackdown on the #IranProtests. Under his direction, 1,500 Iranians were killed and 9,000 were arrested during a series of state-sponsored massacres carried out to halt the peaceful, nation-wide protests. pic.twitter.com/m3tWCct4u9

During the protest, BBC reports indicate that Iran was hiding the brutality of the pretest from the media and the world. It was alleged that the late Soleimani was the brain behind the cruelty.
A video on Twitter exposed the Iranian security seriously assaulting civilians who involved in the protests.

According to the BBC “One video filmed through a doorway appears to show a woman looking at a teenage boy lying in a pool of blood on a pavement, as a riot policeman swings a baton at people running past him.”
A video from Amnesty International in November 22nd, 2019 revealed that Iran was endangering protesters. Their posts reads ‘Digital experts say nothing to date equals Iran’s internet shutdown in logistical complexity. Seems that #Iranian authorities don’t want us to see how they are shooting unarmed protesters from rooftops of government buildings like this one”.
