The incident of the Ahwaz terrorist attack on the thirty-first of September was a very bitter subject, which led to the martyrdom and wounding of a number of our compatriots. The early hours of the news release of this incident, especially in the cyberspace, were accompanied by photos of Mr. Mehdi Pedram from the accident site.
I call her a day after the incident. Is young and has a quiet voice. The environment in which it is present is calm, but from the very early conversations, it can be well disappointed to hear its voice. I will be coordinating with him for a video interview. Says Tomorrow to attend the funeral of martyrs in Ahvaz. I want him to say a little bit about the terrorist incident yesterday, he accepts respectfully and begins to speak:
I was afraid of the Mehr News Agency, we received our cards and we were deployed to cover the 31st Parade. Music groups started and the parade began. After a few minutes of shooting, we first thought that the unit was a special unit, and this shooting was part of their military movements, and the beams were good, but we saw the guards reacting and we just realized what was happening. People came from the position where they were watching the parade to the walls of the garrison and opened one of the garrison doors so people would go inside the garrison. It was very busy, somebody said to sleep, land, someone said, and then I started taking pictures.
We were about 100 meters away from the terrorists, and in some cases less. The terrorists took only the storm on people, they did not have a clear purpose. They just shot. Many soldiers did not even have guns or their guns were empty. The terrorists only shot and saw that they did not have mercy on the 4-year-old child.
He is Ms. Fatemeh Rahimawian, photographer of Fars News Agency. When they opened the garrison and people were running toward the garrison. The stress that Mrs. Chadrey had with her and had taken refuge at the photographer attracted my attention and took the picture.
For the first time, they shot me, I slept on the ground for a while, then I took the equipment and photographed. Perhaps adrenaline was high. I was afraid, I can not say it was not fearful, especially as a soldier was shot next to me from the area. I was photographed at Tsensim, who realized that our soldier was shot, we were really shocked, but still photographed. These photographs are historical documents of the crime that happened.
I say something that happened to myself. Although there was a sound of shots and cries from the people and the military, I heard the voices of two soldiers who were members of the band. They were behind the electricity column. There was a jumble of water next to the street where people had fallen there. One of them said we went inside the garrison, and the other one said, “You go, I help people reach the garrison.” Many of the military were sheltered with vacant hands.
