Fact Check

On keyword search, the DFRAC team found no such official order from the Iranian government regarding the mass execution of 15,000 protestors. Furthermore, till now only one person has been given a death sentence.

Protesters are being cracked down on by the Iranian authorities. According to a report of PressTV, that was published on 6th November, “Iranian lawmakers had asked Judiciary to severely punish agents, inciters of riots.”  The call was made in a Sunday letter to the Judiciary, signed by 227 Iranian lawmakers, who asked the judicial officials to consider severe punishments for all those involved in the riots, both as agents on the ground and inciters.

Another document on ‘Daily Update on Iran Protests’ shared by the U.S.-based activist Human Rights Activists News Agency mentions that as of 15th November at 3:30 p.m EST, the Estimated number of detainees is 15,915.

However, there are no official sources that supports the viral claim of the mass execution of 15,000 protesters by Iranian government.

Conclusion

The claim that the Iranian regime ordered the mass execution of 15,000 protesters is not correct
