On Tuesday, June 3, 2021, a kolbar with identity “Sarkavt Mirzaei” was severely wounded by cold weapon of I.R.Iran’s forces in the border area of ”Hanga-jal” in the city of Baneh.
According to reports received by the KMMK, he was wounded in the wrist by Iranian forces with a bayonet cold weapon and the kolbar’s load was looted by that mentioned forces.
Killing kolbars is an objective example of the crime against humanity that the Islamic Republic of Iran commits on a daily basis.
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.
