According to Iranian Christian news agency, Mohabat News, in an interview with Times of Israel, Menashe Amir, an Israeli-Iranian journalist, said, "The 57 year old lady identified as Tuba N., was killed Monday, allegedly by her Muslim neighbors, who had been trying to drive the family from their home and confiscate their property, which is adjacent to a mosque."
He continued, "The religious radicals even expropriated part of the house and attached it to the mosque's courtyard. The Jewish family appealed to the courts ... despite the threats to their lives."
Mr. Amir explained, "Thugs broke into her home, tied up her two sisters who were living with her, and repeatedly stabbed her to death. The attackers then removed her hands."
This incident has terrorized Jews residing in Esfahan, the third largest city in Iran. The religious restrictions and discriminations have forced many Jews to immigrate to other countries. The number of Jews residing in Esfahan has decreased dramatically in recent years. Total population of Jews in Esfahan in 2009 was reportedly 1200, which is now down to 100 families.
The Times of Israel also reported that Iranian authorities attempted to cover up the killing and have refused to submit the women's body to her family.
Prior to this, on March 14, 2011, another Jewish lady known as Adiva Mirza-Soleiman-Kalimi together with his Armenian Christian husband, Mr. Varoujan Petrosian, another woman and two men whose identities were unknown, had been secretly executed in the Notorious Evin prison in Tehran.
