When one hurts or kills a women
one hurts or kills hummanity and is an antrocitie.
Gino d'Artali
and: My mother (1931-1997) always said to me <Mi figlio, non esistono notizie <vecchie> perche puoi imparare qualcosa da qualsiasi notizia.> Translated: <My son, there is no such thing as so called 'old' news because you can learn something from any news.>
Gianna d'Artali

Note by Gino d'Artali: The Zan, zendagi, azadi!> (Women, life, freedom) has just started and will only then end when khamenei and his puppets i.e. the morality police and the basijis give way or go away!!
So here is where the protests continue and I'll continue to inform you about it. That's my pledge.

Preface: <THE HOLY QURAN: <GIRLS' EDUCATION IS A DIVINE COMMAND. In Islam, education is a divine command for both men and women. The Quran as well as the hadith * leave no doubt that women, like men, are obligated to increase their knowledge and pursue it. The Quran explicitly states that men and women are equal in the eyes of God. Furthermore, the Quran: forbids female infanticide (practiced in pre-Islamic Arabia and other parts of the world) instructs Muslims to educate daughters as well as sons. The Koran (49:13) does not make any distinction on the basis of sex and believes in human equality: O Mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Whosoever follows a path to seek knowledge therein, God will make easy for him a path to paradise. Education is not only the right, but the duty of every Muslim, male or female. The best gift from a father to his child is education and upbringing. Knowledge cannot be acquired with sloth.>
* The Hadith are the Islamic traditions recorded in large collections about the doings and sayings of Mohammed. Through these traditions one knows the Sunnah, the way of the Prophet.
Now I, Gino d'Artali, a humble to be Sunni Muslim, have been speaking/discussing the above with Muslima sisters, not in doubt but with the question why the Iran shi'i mullahs are waging war against schoolgirls and one thing became clear: they are not following the Sunnah of the Holy Quran but the path of Afghanistan's taliban who forbids girls and women to be educated.
When the Iranian mullahs keep up their bio-war against schoolgirls that will be a disaster for Iran.
Read the following article as published by NCRI on September 8 2021:
And this article how our sisters in Afghanistan are targeted:

Jinha - Womens News Agency - 13 April 2023
<<News Center- A girls' high school was reportedly set on fire in Afghanistan's Zabul province on Tuesday night by unidentified person or persons. According to the local sources, the entire administrative documents and books in the school building were burned as a result of the fire.
The Taliban have not released any statement about the fire.
The Taliban have banned women and girls from going to school and since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, women and girls have been subjected to misogynistic policies. Despite all the inhuman practices carried out by the Taliban, Afghan women keep resisting to retake their rights.>>

Iran's Top Sunni Cleric Blasts Country's <Closed-Minded> Leadership
Iran's most prominent Sunni cleric again used his Friday sermon to preach religious tolerance and to criticize the policies of the country's Shia leadership, amid popular calls for the overthrow of the Islamic Republic. The ideologies of those <closed-minded individuals who hold positions of power> have <hindered progress and led to irrational decisions,> Molavi Abdulhamid, the Sunni Friday prayer leader of the south-eastern city of Zahedan, said on April 14.
In his latest Friday sermon, Molavi blamed the Islamic Republic for a wave of poisonings that has affected girls' schools over the past months, saying, <People do not accept your claim and believe that the poisonings are deeply rooted in the system.> <The culprit must be connected to an organization capable of attacking multiple schools in a single day. Regardless of whether the perpetrators is from within or outside the government, he must be identified and stopped by force,> he said. Molavi expressed <surprise> over the fact that those behind the poisonings have not been identified, since the country's security apparatuses are using sophisticated surveillance systems to identify violators of the Islamic Republic's mandatory headscarf rules. He also criticized the government's discriminatory policies toward Afghan immigrants, including the closure of prayer halls for Afghans in some cities.After prayers, hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Zahedan for a silent march out of respect for the month of Ramadan. Internet monitor NetBlocks reported a <significant disruption> to connectivity in the city, calling the incident <the latest in a cycle of internet shutdowns targeting anti-government protests during Friday prayers.> Zahedan residents have been holding protest rallies every Friday since September 30, when security forces killed nearly 100 people, in the deadliest incident so far in the nationwide demonstrations triggered by the September death of a 22-year-old Kurdish woman, Mahsa Amini, in police custody.>>

<<Iranian Regime Criticized for Not Handling the Wave of School Poisonings
The Iranian regime faces criticism for not handling the wave of school poisonings that have affected 505 schools in 109 cities throughout Iran since November 30. Despite the involvement of intelligence agencies and various committees, no official report has been published yet, leaving the public in the dark. On Wednesday, April 12, at least 27 schools in Karaj, Isfahan, Tabriz, Shahin Shahr, Bandar Genaveh, Kamyaran, Shahriar, Oshnavieh, Urmia, Borujerd, Marivan, Parsabad, Moghan, and Kermanshah were targeted by criminal chemical attacks, adding to the public's fear and concern.
On Tuesday morning, April 11, some students of the 13 Aban dormitory suffered poisoning symptoms. However, the General Administration of Tehran University Dormitory Affairs claimed: <These symptoms are only due to the painting of the street.> Shayesteh Mohammadi, the deputy to the principal at the Fahmideh Elementary School in Kamyaran, was badly poisoned because she did not immediately leave the building as she was helping the little girls leave first. She is presently hospitalized in the ICU at Sina Hospital in Kamyaran. Fahmideh Elementary School was among the targets of chemical attacks on Tuesday, April 11. Local press criticize officials
The Iranian Judiciary has instructed officials to use the term <feeling bad> instead of <poisoning> in their remarks and reports, further adding to the confusion. (The state-run Mizan news agency, April 11, 2023) The state-run Etemad Daily wrote on April 11 that while the incident has arrested over a hundred people, including several journalists and cyberspace activists, almost none of the authorities that have commented on the incident can publish a report acceptable to the public. Various theories have been suggested to explain the cause of the poisoning, including using the chemical compound aluminum phosphide. Some reports have mentioned a smell like rotten fish, while others have recorded poisoning symptoms without any specific odor. Etemad added that the keyword <chemical attack> has been frequently used in reports, with some even alleging terrorism as a possible motive. The lack of official information has led to various conflicting narratives, with some blaming the government, intelligence agencies, and religious extremist groups. Another state-run newspaper, Ettelaat, suggested that powerful hands may be behind the conspiracy and damage, making it challenging to untie the knot of its secrets. Some officials have blamed mischievous students for the incidents, but the public is asking why these issues are not happening in boys' schools where there is more playfulness and mischief.>>

<<Iranian schools rocked by series of chemical attacks on female students
At least eight Iranian schools and a conservatory in Shahin Shahr, Isfahan, including Menouchehr Ansari Girls' School, Al-Yasin Girls' High School, and Fahmideh School, were attacked with toxic gas on Tuesday, April 11. Female students from Shayan Girls' School in Isfahan, Enghelab-e Eslami in Tabriz, Khadijeh Kobra in Ashnooyeh, Shima Moradi in Kermanshah, and one school in Bandar Gonaveh are among the other victims of this crime. The Iranian regime has denied the attacks, with officials at some schools preventing the entry of students' parents and ambulances to the schools. Some families have had to take their children to medical centers due to the lack of ambulances. Iranian female students have been targeted in a spate of chemical attacks across the country. The attacks, which have been ongoing since April 3, have affected Iranian schools in Tehran and the cities of Ardebil, Pardis, Karaj, Dolat Abad, Isfahan, Shahin Shahr, Tabriz, Maragheh, Ajabshir, Naqadeh, Piranshahr, Urmia, Ashnooyeh, Bandar Gonaveh, Haftehkel, Kuh-e Nokhodan Sarvestan, Qom, Sanandaj, Saqqez, Divandareh, Kermanshah, and Amol. Some members of the mullahs' parliament |*| have expressed surprise that the State Security Force can use CCTV cameras to identify improperly veiled women, but it cannot identify the perpetrators of this heinous crime. (The state-run ISNA news agency - April 10, 2023) Some officials have downplayed the attacks, with one member of the Parliament's education committee, Mehrdad Vais Karami, stating that <there was no poisoning at all> and that some students had only felt ill due to the smell of oil. Raisi's government has not provided any information on the perpetrators of the attacks, or the type of chemicals used. As of now, the investigation is ongoing, and it is unclear when the government will release a report on the attacks.>>
Opinion by Gino d'Artali: The |*| is mine and for a good reason because the mullahs are shi'is pleading on all charges not guilty i.e. 'it's only the smell of oil'. But one day justice will be served, mullah or not.

<<More Iranian Schoolgirls Poisoned amid Increased Censorship
Multiple girls' schools across Iran were targeted by gas attacks on April 11, as the authorities barred the media from reporting on a wave of poisonings that have shaken the country for more than four months.
Schools in at least seven cities - Tabriz, Isfahan, Shahinshahr, Genaveh, Kermanshah, Ashnaveih and Kamiyaran - were targeted on April 11, according to activist groups. Eyewitnesses said there were not enough oxygen masks and ambulances to respond to the incidents at several schools.
Parents of students at Ansari Girls' School in Shahinshahr said that school staff locked the doors of the building to prevent pupils from leaving.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Guidance of the Islamic Republic instructed local media not to cover the poisonings at girls' schools, citing concerns that it could create <disturbing waves> in society. The ministries urged journalists to rely only on information provided by the Ministries of Education and Interior. Since November 2022, more than 13,000 students have suffered symptoms including nausea, fainting, headaches, coughing, breathing difficulties and heart palpitations, with many requiring treatments in hospital. The poisonings have sparked fear and anger among schoolgirls, their parents and Iranian society at large. The attacks have led to calls for increased security measures at schools across the country, with several principals reportedly asking parents to keep their children at home. After Iranian authorities announced arrests over the poisonings last month, UN experts criticized the Islamic Republic for failing to protect the schoolgirls, prevent further attacks and conduct swift investigations. The experts said the attacks might be <orchestrated to punish girls> for their involvement in nationwide protests sparked by the September 2022 death of a young woman* in police custody.>>
I, Gino d'Artali, added the * because her name is JINA MAHSA AMINI! Allah has her soul.

<<16 students suspended from university for protesting poisoning of schoolgirls in Iran
News Center- Tabriz University's Students' Council has announced on its Telegram channel that at least 16 students have been suspended from Tabriz University of Medical Sciences for protesting the poisoning of schoolgirls in Iran and Rojhelat Kurdistan. The council also said that at least 16 students protesting the chemical attacks against girls' schools have been suspended from the university for one term and two terms.
According to the statement released by the council, more students may be suspended from the university by the disciplinary committee of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences. The protests that started in Iran and Rojhelat following the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini by Iran's so-called <morality police> on September 16, 2022, continues. Since the beginning of the protests, women and students have been at frontline and they have been subjected to arrest, torture, rape, kidnapping and murder by the regime forces. The Iranian regime keeps carrying out inhuman practices against especially students for their leading role in the nationwide protests. Since November, many schoolgirls have been poisoned at schools in Iran and Rojhilat. On Sunday, April 9, at least 47 students were taken to hospital after being poisoned at six girls' schools in Saqqez and other cities of Rojhelat Kurdistan. 20 students are reportedly in critical condition.>>

<<Iranian students: Take to the streets to protest poisoning of schoolgirls
News Center- The <Jin, Jiyan, Azadi> protests that started in Iran and Rojhilat following the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini have continued for seven months while the Iranian authorities have used all kinds of inhuman methods to quell the protests. One of these methods is deliberate poisoning of schoolgirls. Many schoolgirls, who were poisoned at school, still receive treatment at hospitals while some are still in critical condition
'More protests should be held against such attacks'
The revolutionary student organizations of Bushehr and Tehran issued a joint statement today. Calling the ongoing poisoning of schoolgirls as an attack on the struggle of students, the statement said, <This planned attack, which continues during the new school year is a retaliation against the struggles of revolutionary students. Progressive students should try to revive the atmosphere of protest at schools by holding more protests and taking to the streets. The government attacks students because it knows very well that students lead the current revolution.> >>

News Center- The Iranian regime continues to use all kinds of inhuman practices to quell the protests that started in Iran and Rojhilat following the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini in custody. Since November, many schoolgirls have been poisoned at schools in Iran and Rojhilat. According to the local sources, at least 47 students were taken to hospital after being poisoned at six girls' schools in Saqqez and other cities of Rojhilat Kurdistan on Sunday, April 9. 20 students are reportedly in critical condition.

<<Iran's Saqqez Hit by Protests after School Poisonings
Violence was reported in Saqqez on April 9 during street protests sparked by a wave of poisoning attacks that targeted at least six girls' schools in Iran's north-western Kurdish city. At least 100 pupils were reportedly transferred to medical centers for treatment, and 24 of them were said to be in critical condition. Angry residents gathered outside Meraj Girls' School and Imam Khomeini Hospital, according to social media footage, as gunshots were reportedly heard in the city. Footage shows the protesters lighting fires and pulling down the flag of the Islamic Republic from the school.
Sources said that security forces blocked roads leading to the school and used force to disperse the demonstrators. Several people were reportedly detained.>>

<<Chemical Attacks on Iranian Schools Spark Protests and Outrage
On Sunday, April 9, multiple schools in Iran were targeted by chemical attacks, resulting in the hospitalization of dozens of students. Six girls' schools in Saqqez, including Meraj, Taleghani, and Somayyeh, were affected, with at least 47 students being taken to the hospital. Tragically, twenty of them are reported to be in severe condition. The attacks have sparked outrage and protests in Saqqez, with students and their families taking to the streets to demand justice. They lit fires and chanted <Death to Khamenei> in a display of anger towards the Iranian regime's handling of the situation. In response, State Security Force's special units were deployed in the streets and opened fire on people in the Shahnaz district. Un-fortunately, this was not an isolated incident. Jamaran girls' schools in Sanandaj and Esmat girls' schools in Zarrineh, both in Kurdistan province, were also targeted by chemical attacks, poisoning the students. In Maragheh, East Azerbaijan province, 30 students of Qudsiyeh school in Varjoy village were taken to the hospital for similar reasons. Moreover, the attacks have claimed more lives. Karou Pashabadi, a 16-year-old boy from Kamyaran in Kermanshah Province, died on Friday, April 7, 2023, after being hospitalized for three weeks due to a chemical attack on his school in Tehran. He had been taken to Milad Hospital for treatment on March 15, 2023, after inhaling poisonous gas.>>

<<Chemical attacks on girls' schools persist in Iran
Intentional poisoning of female students in schools has continued with even greater intensity since the Nowruz holiday ended. Chemical attacks on girls' schools resumed after the Iran Nowruz holidays. According to the general director of security and disciplinary affairs of the Governorate of Ardabil, some 400 students have been urgently transferred to the hospital. Students in more than 10 girls' schools in Ardabil were poisoned before noon on Saturday, April 8, 2023, with symptoms of nausea and vomiting. (The state-run Sharq news network - April 8, 2023) The head of the Medical Emergencies of Ardabil Province also reported that at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 8, they had been contacted by five girls' schools in Ardabil where a number of their students had symptoms of anxiety, short breath, and headache. They were transferred to the hospital for treatment. The families of these students held protests outside their daughters' schools and chanted anti-government slogans. On Saturday, April 8, 2023, Maziar Moulai, head of the Health Network of Haftkel County, Khuzestan Province, reported that 60 students from Hajar School in Haftkel, 20 of whom had been transferred to hospital for treatment. This is the second time Hajar school has experienced a chemical attack. (The state-run Khabarfori website - April 8, 2023) In Ahvaz, eight female students at Sahar Girls' High School were hospitalized due to poisoning. Meanwhile, the deputy for treatment of the Jondishapur Medical Sciences University of Ahvaz reported that the students of two girls' schools in Haftkel and Ahvaz had been poisoned. (The state-run - April 8, 2023)
Officials continue to cover up, downplay the severity
Despite five months that have passed since the start of chemical attacks on girls' schools, the clerical regime's officials are making conflicting statements and attempting to justify, cover-up, and downplay the chemical attacks on girls' schools throughout the country. Hamid Kazemi, the head of the Fact-finding Working Group on students' poisoning, made an impertinent statement in the parliament about the chemical attacks, stating, <Some students are naughty and do mischievous things. School defense mechanisms must be established to prevent such incidents.> (The state-run - April 7, 2023) Earlier, Yahya Ebrahimi told the mullahs' parliament about covering up this heinous crime. He admit-ted, <We were not honest with our people regarding the poisonings. We concealed them. 245 schools in 26 provinces were affected. This is happening only in girls' schools. Therefore, they have a specific target, and they are pursuing a specific goal by doing this.> >>
