ICBHR: A woman was poured acid in her face and neck in Kashmar, Razavi Khorasan Province on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, said officials.
The 35-year-old woman was victimized because of an acid attack by her ex-husband, ISNA quoted Javad Yazdani, the chief of health network.
She, 20-25% burns, was hospitalized after the brutal attack.
In Iran, several women have senselessly felt victimized by acid throwing (Honor Related Violence). A series of acid attacks on women in the city of Isfahan happened around October 2014, raised fears and prompted rumors that the victims were targeted for not being properly veiled (Islamic dress). The Islamic vigilantes riding on motorbikes threw acid in at least four women’s faces in Isfahan, but the media put the number as high as eight.
Today, under Iran's Sharia law, imposed since the 1979 Islamic revolution, Qisas (retribution) is permitted in cases where bodily injuries are inflicted. Iran courts can rule that acid attackers must be thrown by acid in part of the body as punishment for an acid attack that left their victim sightless, using the principle of “eye for an eye” of Islamic Sharia law.
