AusIran has thoroughly researched and verified all information about this martyr.


Shirin Alizadeh Khansari (June 15, 1986 – September 22, 2022) was among the casualties of Iran’s 2022 uprising. While traveling in Mazandaran province, she was fatally shot near Motel Ghoo. At the moment of impact, Shirin was filming clashes between protesters and security forces stationed at a Basij base, capturing her own death on her mobile phone, later shared on social media platforms.

A 7-year-old child, her son, witnessed her tragic demise as they were together in the car during the incident.

The transfer of Shirin Alizadeh’s body to Isfahan, delivery to her family, and permission for burial and funeral ceremonies were granted only after numerous threats and assurances from her family not to inform the media. The burial took place amidst government officials and plainclothes officers.

The 40th-day commemoration of Shirin Alizadeh Khansari was being held at Bagh-e Rezvan cemetery in Isfahan on November 4, 2022. However, plainclothes and armed law enforcement officers attacked the gathering, preventing the start of the 40th-day ceremony.

Shirin, a 36-year-old employee of a charity fund, a graphic designer, and a lover of traditional Iranian and classical music, had gone on a recreational trip with her husband and 7-year-old child to the north.

Shirin was killed just five days after the death of Mahsa Amini during protests in Salmanshahr, Mazandaran, a city about 600 kilometers away from her hometown of Isfahan. She was filming the protests from inside their family car when she was shot by a security officer.

Amid the protests in Iran following Mahsa Amini’s death, numerous videos were released showing the targeting of protesters by Iranian government forces. Among this group, Shirin Alizadeh was one of the first individuals to capture her own shooting on film.

During those days, Iranian authorities insisted they were not shooting at protesters and that no one had been killed by government bullets.
