Sistan and Baluchestan (IP) - The Attorney General of Sistan and Baluchestan Province, southeastern Iran, rejected the news about issuing a death sentence for two -18 teenagers in Zahedan, the capital of the province.

Iran PressIran news: News was published in cyberspace claiming that two teenagers, under the age of 18, in Zahedan of Iran were sentenced to death because of acting against national security during the recent unrest.

Mahdi Shamsabadi strongly rejected the news and noted that the hostile media disseminated such rumors to cast division between Shia and Sunni.

He recalled that not only for the two mentioned teenagers but also for no other youth under 18 years of age in the criminal court of the city, a death sentence had been issued on the charge of acting against national security. 

The attorney general called on the people to increase their media literacy and be vigilant about the gossip aimed at instigating riots in the cities. 

The unrest that broke out in Iran recently, under the pretext of a 22-year-old girl Mahas Amini, caused the enemies of the Islamic Republic to use the opportunity to interfere with the domestic affairs of Iran and fuel the recent riots.  

Those who led the unrest brought the riots to the extent that encouraged the rioters to kill people and then attributed it to the security forces who were standing against them to save the country. 

During the recent unrest, the rioters destroyed public property, even ambulances, and set fire to houses and mosques and people in the streets. They carried out armed attacks in some cities, including Isfahan, killing a number of people and security forces.

The US' former National Security Advisor John Bolton confessed, in an interview with BBC, that weapons from Iraq's Kurdistan have been sent to the rioters in Iran.
