Baneh; Injury of a kolbar due to border regiment’s direct fire


On Sunday, June 13, 2021, a kolbar with the identity “Masoud Khezrzadeh” resident of Bokan was severely wounded after a direct fire by I.R.IRAN’s armed forces in the border area of ​​Hengajal in the city of Baneh.

According to the reports received by the KMMK, he was transferred to one of the medical centers in Baneh 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.
