On Wednesday, May 12, 2021, a kolbar named “Hassan Alam Holi” was severely wounded after a direct fire by the Turkish government forces in the border strip of Vakil village of Chaldiran city.
According to reports received by KMMK, he was transferred to a medical center in Mako for treatment.
The killing of kolbars is an objective example of the crime against humanity that the Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey commit on a daily basis.
P.S: Kolbar (Kurdish: کۆڵبەر) is a worker who is employed to carry goods on his/her back across the borders. Most Kolbars live in eastern Kurdistan and they come from the poorest regions in the area. Kolbars are mostly considered illegal and have no insurance, retirement plans and unions.
