A. whereas over the last month hundreds of schoolgirls were hospitalized following their deliberate poisoning with toxic gas emissions in schools across Iran;

C. whereas representatives of the Iranian regime have denied knowledge of or downplayed the attacks; whereas IRGC forces were dispatched to the hospitals where students were treated and harassed medical personnel; whereas on 6 March Ayatollah Khamenei called the poisoning of school girls an “unforgivable crime” and demanded authorities to “pursue the issue”;

D. whereas according to reports fundamentalist groups operating as self-declared guardians of their interpretation of Islam may be behind the poisoning exposing the lawless resurfacing under the unaccountable government;
