Raeisi meets families of security forces killed during last year’s unrest

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi met with the families of security forces killed during mass protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini last year.
Raeisi’s meetings were held during a visit to the northeastern city of Mashhad on Thursday and Friday, ahead of the Sept. 16 anniversary of Amini’s death, which caused months of protests across the country.
“Raeisi met today with the families of security defenders,” the official IRNA said.
His meetings included the families of Danial Rezazadeh and Hossein Zeinalzadeh, according to Tasnim news agency.
Rezazadeh and Zeinalzadeh – members of the Basij forces – were killed on November 17.
Their deaths were blamed on Majidreza Rahnavard, one of seven people Iran’s judiciary later executed over their links to the protests.
During a meeting on Thursday, Raeisi welcomed “the shameful failure of the enemy’s project aimed at destabilizing” Iran, according to a statement issued by the Office of the President.
