An Iranian court has imposed the death penalty on two individuals found guilty of the capital offense known as 'enmity against God', according to the judiciary's statement on Wednesday.

A third individual involved in the April 8 robbery on a highway in northern Tehran received a 25-year prison sentence, as reported by the judiciary's Mizan Online website.

Mizan detailed that 'Branch 28 of Tehran Revolutionary Court has sentenced two defendants to death on the charge of Moharebeh (enmity against God) for using cold weapons to steal from people and instigate insecurity.'

All three individuals have the right to appeal their sentences to Iran's Supreme Court.

Iran is known to carry out more executions annually than any other country except China, a fact highlighted by human rights organizations such as Amnesty International. Iran Human Rights, based in Norway, reported that at least 249 people, including 10 women, were executed in Iran during the first half of 2024.
