Dezful, Qods Garrison

In Khuzestan province, there is a scrapyard in the IRGC Qods garrison compound beside the Karkheh River that is also likely to be the location of a mass grave of victims executed during the 1988 massacre.

Over 40 male and female political prisoners were transferred to this garrison from the UNESCO Prison, where used to be the UNESCO office before the 1979 revolutin,on 31 July 1988. The authorities forced the prisoners to perform ablutions in the garrison bathrooms and put on burial shrouds, before taking them on a minibus to be executed by firing squad in another part of the compound.

The area is accessible only to IRGC forces. Civilians, including the families of the victims, are prohibited from entering it.
