On July 7, 2023, 18-year-old Zilan Ayvaz from the village of Zivah in the district of Piranshahr was killed by her father, Salam Ayvaz.

According to reports, Zilan Ayvaz was fatally shot by her father after he discovered that she had a boyfriend, considering her actions a violation of family honor.

In Iran, certain legal articles have faced criticism for their lenient sentences in cases where fathers kill their daughters in the name of 'honor'. Such cases often result in prison terms of 3 to 5 years. In contrast, other countries like Syria and Sudan have taken steps to align their laws more closely with international standards by removing similar Sharia-based articles in recent years (as of 2021).
