An Islamic Republic military convoy has been shown headed toward Saqqez, the birthplace of the late Mahsa Amini as security forces move to preempt protests on the eve of her anniversary.

The Hengaw Human Rights Organization, specializing in coverage of events in Kurdish regions of Iran, released the video, coinciding with an announcement made by Amini's parents on Instagram indicating their intention to conduct a commemorative ceremony at her gravesite, marking the anniversary of her death aged just 22.

Amini died nearly a year ago during her detention by the morality police while en route to Tehran.

She is said to have died of brutal head wounds and her passing sparked one of the most substantial anti-government protests in the 44-year history of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The aftermath of last year's protests saw a deadly crackdown by the regime, resulting in the tragic loss of more than 500 civilians, with thousands sustaining injuries and tens of thousands arrested.

The Iranian regime has neither disclosed official figures nor assumed responsibility for any of the casualties.
