For a month and a half, riots have continued in the country, which began in mid-September in connection with the death of a young Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, after she was detained by the vice police. Protests and riots take place mainly in the provinces of Gilan, Khuzestan, Sistan and Balochistan, Tehran and Kurdistan. The Iranian authorities accuse Western countries of supporting the protesters, who in their media circulate messages of a subversive, anti-Iranian nature, as well as calls for the overthrow of power in Iran. The rioters are systematically attacking and killing members of the security forces – the police, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC, Iran's elite military unit), as well as members of one of its major military structures – the Basij.

In this center, the girl had a heart attack, after which she was immediately taken to the hospital. She died three days later. Residents blamed the vice police for Mahsa's death. People in different cities of the country began to gather on the streets to protest. Videos have been posted on social media showing girls cutting off their hair and burning a hijab or “Rusari” headscarf, which, according to the law, must cover the head of an Iranian woman.
