According to Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Oct. 5th, an internal report of the Iranian regime has mentioned that subsequent to interrogation of hostages in a prison in Baghdad by the torturers from the Iran's Ministry of Intelligence, and the Baghdad Embassy, and threatening to extradite the hostages to Iran, the 7 hostages have turned their hunger strike into a dry hunger strike in recent days. 

On Sep. 1, 2013 the Iraqi special forces raided Iranian camp Ashraf the residence of some 100 unarmed members of the Iranian resistance. The Iraqi forces killed 52 people, a number of them execution style where they were handcuffed and shot to their head or chests. 7 people including 6 women were kidnapped. The residents of Camp liberty, started a vast hunger strike and others in Berlin, Geneva, London, Melbourne and Ottawa joined in. 
In Ottawa in front of the US embassy the Iranian-Canadians have entered their 36th day of Hunger Strike. Their demands are the release of 7 hostages and the UN blue helmet to be stationed at camp Liberty to protect the residents as promised by UN and US. 

Amnesty International in its statement Oct. 4 has warned of imminent execution of Ghazi Abbasi, a member of Iran’s Ahwazi Arab minority who has been transferred to solitary confinement. AI added that He is believed to have been tortured or otherwise ill-treated while in detention.
27 September 2013, Ghazi Abbasi, an Ahwazi Arab man on death row, was transferred from his cell to solitary confinement in Karoun Prison, in Khuzestan. He is at imminent risk of execution as death row inmates in Iran are usually put in solitary confinement immediately prior to the implementation of their sentences.
Ghazi Abbasi, along with three other men, Abdul-Reza Amir-Khanafereh, Abdul-Amir Mojaddami and Jasim Moghaddam Payam were sentenced to death on
15 August 2012 for the vaguely worded charges of “enmity against God” (moharebeh) and “corruption on earth” (ifsad fil- arz). 

Down with Satellite dishes!!
On Sept. 28 the Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) in the southern city of Shiraz used personnel carriers and roller trucks to crush 800 satellite dishes and receivers. 2 days earlier Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian regime's new president at Council on Foreign Relations said: " in Iran everyone has easy access to satellite networks, and you can even see dishes on rooftops in every village." 
IRGC described it as a “symbolic act” and a “valuable measure to confront the cultural offensive staged by the enemies of the revolution and establishment”. The event was held at the “presence of Shiraz city and Fars Province officials”.
A number of dishes crushed carried the US flag with “Death to America” writings on them.
