Baneh; injury of a kolbar due to direct fire from border regiment


On Tuesday, June 2, 2021, “Rahman Karimpour” native of “Sooich” village in the Baneh city was severely wounded by direct fire from the I.R.Iran’s forces in the border area of ​​Hangajal in the city of Baneh.

According to reports received by the KMMK, he was transferred to one of the medical centers in that city for treatment.

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.
