During the summer of 1988, a 17 year old woman from the Iranian city of Qom was sentenced to 70 lashes which she received the night before her execution. Her name was Zohreh Heydari and she is a symbol of the courage of the members of the Iranian Resistance.
During the summer of 1988, the Supreme Leader of Iran ordered the execution of all members of the opposition. In this short period of time, more than 30,000 political prisoners were executed.

Iran has been involved in the Syria civil war since it started. Its militias have backed and propped up Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad to no end and at the minute their combined forces are subduing towns and cities from Eastern Aleppo to southern ar-Raqqah. Russian battleships in the Mediterranean, as well as jets, are working to subjugate them with shells.
The brave Syrian opposition is battling away through tough circumstances even after it was assailed by Iran and its foreign militias. The opposition has been unable to receive much needed aid and supplies because the Jordanian and Turkish passages have remained closed.
