After several poisonings in girls’ schools in Iran, President Ebrahim Raisi intervened today. On his website, he announced that Interior Minister Ahmed Vahidi will henceforth continuously provide information about the status of the investigation into mysterious incidents. She added that he assigned Waheedi to “calm the fears of the relatives.”
Today, Iranian media reported that new poisoning attacks took place in a total of ten girls’ schools, seven of them in the northwestern city of Ardabil and three in the capital, Tehran. More than 100 students have been hospitalized.
The authorities suspect exclusion from school as the reason
Cases of poisoning in girls’ schools in Iran have been reported repeatedly for about three months, which authorities suspect is an attempt to exclude girls from education. The exact route of the toxic attacks and who was responsible for them has not yet been clarified.
According to an Iranian parliament member, nearly 1,200 schoolgirls suffering from shortness of breath have had to receive medical treatment so far, 800 of them due to poisoning alone in the city of Qom, south of Tehran. The materials used against the girls in Qom appear to contain traces of nitrogen.
