Human rights: 300 martyrs and 15,000 injured victims of protests in Iraq

The Independent High Commission for Human Rights in Iraq announced on Sunday, 10 November 2019, a new toll of victims of protests that broke out in the country since mid-October last, noting that it has exceeded 300 martyrs.

UNHCR spokesman Ali Akram al-Bayati said in a press statement followed by the obelisk, that the death toll reached 300 martyrs, in addition to 15 thousand injured, since the start of the protests.

Over the past few days, a series of prosecutions and arrests of activists have taken place, while protests continue in most of the central and southern parts of the country, for the 17th day in a row, calling for the “overthrow of the government”, the fight against unemployment and poverty, the accountability of the killers of protesters, and the theft of public money.
