As informed earlier, from Thursday to Saturday (September 9, 10 and 11) the suicide drones and artillery unit of the ground forces of the IRGC “Under the pretext of the presence of Kurdish parties opposed to the Iranian regime. These heavy attacks have caused great damage to the environment of the region, causing panic and financial damage to the people of these border areas.
The attacks come as Mohammad Pakpour, commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ ground forces, has been threatening Kurdish parties and people living around civilian refugee camps in recent days. However, this is not the first time that the Islamic Republic has threatened and attacked on opposition political activists. And they are carrying out drone strikes, which has caused innumerable human and financial losses to the citizens and residents of the region.
We, the Kurdistan Human Right organisations, have strongly criticized the continuation of these attacks and the silence of international organizations and the world’s community, and together with the people of Kurdistan, we call for ended the IR’s military attacks against Kurdish political activists and parties. We also believe that the Kurdish issue will not be resolved through assassination, execution, detention, military strikes and threats. Recognition of the existence of the Kurdish nation and the legal and natural rights of this society and its peaceful resolution is the only measure that will provide lasting peace in this geography.
