Amnesty International said the death toll is a "further evidence that Iran's security forces went on a horrific killing spree". She said those verifications have been so precise that they provided her and other members of the group's Iran research team with the street names and dates of incidents of security forces using excessive and lethal force against demonstrators.
"A number of exile groups (and media networks) have either taken credit for instigating both ordinary people to protest and riots, or have encouraged lawlessness and vandalism, or both", said Alireza Miryousefi, a spokesman at the mission.
Iran shut down web entry amid the unrest, blocking these contained in the nation from sharing their movies and knowledge, in addition to limiting the skin world from understanding the size of the protests and violence.

Iran's fuel prices are among the cheapest in the world, but the price rise comes amid an ailing economy and an increasing cost of living, partly as a result of U.S. sanctions imposed on the country after Donald Trump pulled out of a global agreement to curb Iranian nuclear ambitions in exchange for economic relief.

Amnesty's reported death tolls from Iran's unrest have been widely quoted by Western news outlets, which have been unable to verify the killings due to Iranian restrictions on their access to the country.
The unrest broke out on November 15, hours after it was announced that the price of gas would rise to 15,000 rials per liter (12 USA cents) from 10,000 for the first 60 liters, and to 30,000 rials for any extra fuel bought after that each month. That's 12 cents a litre, or about 50 cents a gallon. After a monthly 60-liter quota, it costs 30,000 rials a litre. That's almost 24 cents a liter or 90 cents a gallon.
