NEDA we will not forgetادارة لن ننسى

Neda_(Iranian_protester) Neda Soltani who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a baseej member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had a clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight at her heart. The impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside her chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes.

The videos were accompanied by a message from a doctor, who was later identified as Dr. Arash Hejazi in an interview with BBC, allegedly a front line physician during the Iran-Iraq war, who claimed to have been present during the incident:

“At 19:05 June 20th Place: Kargar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st. A young woman who was standing aside with her father [sic, later identified as her music teacher] watching the protests was shot by a Basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim’s chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes. The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gass used among them, towards Salehi St. The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me. Please let the world know.”[1]
