Canadian doctors raise alarm as Iranian healthcare workers targeted by regime
The Iranian regime is allegedly detaining, torturing and killing healthcare workers who have treated patients injured during anti-government protests.
Iranian hospitals and clinics have become the latest battleground in ongoing protests against the regime.
“There are informants. Are they your so-called patients? Are they your colleagues, managers?” said Montreal resident Dr. Homa Fathi.
Fathi, a former dentist in Iran, is referring to undercover officers of the Islamic Republic who often visit public hospital emergency departments searching for people injured while fighting for their freedoms on the streets – and the doctors treating them.
Iranian healthcare professionals are putting their lives at risk and facing death to help treat them.
The regime’s security forces, she said, are demanding names and details of anyone seeking treatment for wounds that could have been received in demonstrations.
