Mako; A shot fired by Turkish troops wounded a kolbar


On Saturday, June 5, 2021, “Yousef Farjami”, 15 year old, son of Ebrahim and resident of “Dim Gheshlagh” in the Mako, was severely wounded by direct fire from the occupying Turkish forces.

According to reports received by the KMMK, he was transferred to a medical center in Mako for treatment.

Killing kolbars is an objective example of the crime against humanity committed daily by the occupying regime of Turkey and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

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.
