Narges Mohammadi
Note from G. d'A.: yes, do ask why I put this apart from the other news about the, as is in my opinion correctly, called 'Woman, Life, Freedom' - The Women-led Revolution. Because the below news proves more than enough that not only it are the women in lead, sacrificing their freedom or life,  and not the mullahs' regime and that, whatever the latter tries, the women will continue to lead the way when in the end all freedom-loving people of Iran will march together, and I'll be one of them, to the Azadi tower to set aflame the torch of Victory and place it on top of it, high and shouting: GO AWAY you children- and innocent people murderers. Your time is up! LEAVE!

Anahita Amirpour
NCRI - Womens committee -21 Jan 2024 - in Women's News
<<Anahita Amirpour, 20, shot and killed by Iranian security forces in Borujerd
On Friday night, January 19, 2024, plainclothes agents of the Borujerd Intelligence Department opened a barrage of fire on the occupants of a car. As a result of this attack, 20-year-old Anahita Amirpour, a freshman student of physical education at Borujerd Azad University, died instantly.
Anahita Amirpour was from Kuhdasht. During the last two days, the security services have pressured her family and friends not to inform about this murder. They also want to turn this incident into a security case by linking it to the recent explosions in Kerman.
Kuhdasht and Borujerd are both in Lorestan Province in western Iran.
The car's driver was another student named M. Jalaii-far. He, who was seriously injured, is presently hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of Chamran Hospital in Borujerd. Today, Sunday, January 21, 2024, two Chamran hospital staff were summoned to Borujerd Intelligence Department and severely threatened. It is said that plainclothes officers of the Borujerd Intelligence Department rushed to the car of these two students and wanted to stop them and get them off. But since they were wearing plain clothes, the driver got scared and tried to escape, after which the agents of the intelligence department opened fire on the car, which caused the immediate death of Anahita Amirpour. This is not the first time that security officers have taken the lives of innocent people by firing arbitrarily at people's cars. Soha Etebari, 12, was shot and killed inside her family's car by the armed forces of the clerical regime Sunday night, December 25, 2022. Soha Etebari and her family were driving on the road from Bandar Abbas, in Hormozgan province, to Ahvaz, the capital of Khuzestan, when security forces at a checkpoint in Bastak opened fire on their car. Badly injured, Soha Etebari lost her life on the way to the hospital. The killing of the 12-year-old Soha Etebari took place on the night of the 40th day memorial of Kian Pirfalak, 9, who was killed in a similar incident in Izeh, Khuzestan, on November 16, 2022, during a vicious crackdown on protests in the city. Kian Pirfalak and his family were passing through in their car when they were targeted by plainclothes agents and security forces in Izeh. Kian was killed instantly, and his father was shot and injured.>>

Hadis Najafi
NCRI - Womens committee -19 Jan 2024 - 2024 - in The Fallen for Freedom
<<Hadis Najafi
Hadis Najafi, a symbol of women's resistance against the religious tyranny ruling Iran
Hadis Najafi was born on January 5, 2000. She had a diploma in fashion design and worked as a cashier at a restaurant in Mehrshahr, Karaj. On the night of September 21, 2022, at around 8 p.m., she was shot at least six times by live ammunition and pellets in the face, neck, and chest by the repressive forces of the Iranian regime in Eram Boulevard in Mehrshahr, Karaj. She died in the hospital and her body was covertly buried at night.
Hadis Najafi has three older sisters and one younger brother. After her death, Hadis's mother said: <My daughter came home from work hungry on the night of September 21, but before eating her dinner, she went to participate in the protests of Mahsa Amini's death. She left the world hungry.>
The regime's repressive forces insulted her family in the hospital and said that their daughter ran away from the hospital. But someone in the hospital told them, <Your daughter has been killed and her body is in the morgue.> On Friday September 23, the family managed to get their daughter's body through an acquaintance. In Hadis's death certificate, the cause of her death is stated to be the use of military equipment of war and being shot by a bullet. However, some eyewitnesses who took Hadis Najafi to the hospital told her family that she was alive until she was taken to the hospital, but the repressive forces locked her in the back yard room of the hospital and warned the medical staff not to treat her. This led to the death of Hadis. After Hadis's death and murder, her family was pressured and beaten by the security forces to do a forced television interview. They also drugged and pressured Najafi's father, asking him to say that his daughter died due to the fear of bullets or because of a heart attack.>>
