The regime in Iran has hanged 1 men in public in the city of Eghlid, in Fars Province, southern Iran. The man whose identity has not been revealed was hanged on Sunday.

Reports received reveals that the Iran regime's henchmen in the central prison in the city of Qum had secretly hanged a group of 10 prisoners last Tuesday.

Immediately after the nuclear deal was clinched, the clerical regime embarked on a new wave of executions, including several cases of group hangings.

At least 57 prisoners, including 2 women, have been executed in Iran, in some cases in public squares, in the past 11 days.

The Iranian regime on Monday amputated the hand and foot of an inmate in a prison in Mashhad, northeast Iran.

The prisoner, only identified as Rahman K. had his right hand and left foot severed by the authorities.

He was accused by the regime of committing a bank heist along with an associate, identified as Mehdi R. Both were pronounced by the authorities to be "moharebeh," or "waging war on God."

Both men received the same sentence. It is not known when Mehdi's sentence will be implemented or if it has already been done so.

According to the state-run daily Khorasan both men will continue to serve an extended prison sentence as well.

Faced with escalating popular discontent and unable to respond to the rightful demands of the majority of the Iranian people who are living under the poverty line, the religious fascism ruling Iran - dubbed the 'godfather of ISIS' by the Iranian people - is ramping up suppression.
