Iranian security forces are targeting women’s faces and their private parts with their pellet guns. The doctors treating the injured women have revealed this. He told that the legs, back and buttocks of men are targeted while pellet guns are fired on the face and private parts of women. These doctors and nurses are treating the injured protesters away from the eyes of the government. A doctor in central Isfahan province believes security forces want to kill women by shooting them in the face. On the other hand, a doctor from Karaj says that the security forces have inferiority complex towards women, so they are targeting young women.

Doctors are also trembling due to the pain of girls.
A doctor tells that I had treated a 20 year old girl. Ten security forces fired pellet guns targeting his thigh and private parts. 10 shrapnel had entered the inner part of his thigh while 2 shrapnel had entered his private parts. The 10 pellets lodged in the thigh were easily removed but the remaining two were extremely difficult to remove. There was also a risk of infection so I referred her to a gynaecologist. Seeing the condition of that girl, I was trembling with pain and was thinking that my daughter could have been in her place.
Doctors protested against being prevented by security forces from treating the injured, after which they too were fired upon with tear gas and pellet guns
Doctors threatened not to treat

This is causing damage to the vital organs of the people. Many have lost their eyesight due to shrapnel entering their eyes.
