Newly released satellite images reveal that Iran has been preparing mass graves for the victims of the Coronavirus; The Iranian regime has been repeatedly accused of covering up the actual death toll from the virus; The reported number of deaths is well over 1600 but is likely significantly higher.

Newly released satellite images of burial pits inside of Iran verify concerns that have been growing amid the outbreak of CoVoid-19 over the last couple of months. The burial pits that are being referred to are located in the Behesht-e Masoumeh cemetery in Qom, Iran, where the outbreak marked its initial victims.

While the current official number of deaths being reported out of Iran is over 1600, the Iranian regime has been repeatedly accused of covering up the actual death toll in recent weeks after sources from within Iranian hospital(s) confirmed the number of deaths they were witnessing. In fact, shortly after denying these claims, Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi tested positive for the virus.

It’s worth noting that the Iranian regime has suffered quite a blow from the virus. It has taken the lives of several high-ranking officials with the regime and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Additionally, it is affecting countless Iranian and Iraqi militias that are fighting inside of Syria. Hundreds of militias are reported to have died so far.
