Iran puts pressure on Kurdish cities in East Kurdistan

London (KurdishMedia.com) 15 July, 2005: After the killing of Shwane Qadiri on Saturday in the district of ’Pisttep’ in the city of Mahabad, Eastern Kurdistan, thousands of Kurds have launched protests lasting up to today.

The Iranian intelligence forces, the Etelaat, have arrested two people, Hussein Amanulla and Kemal Perwyiziyane, in the Kurdish city of Bokan. At the same time, the Iranian intelligence agency has attacked several neighbourhoods to arrest 15 people, according to a communiqué issued by the Revolutionary Union of Kurdistan (Yeketi Shorishgerani Kurdistan) on Thursday, as reported by the online Kurdish news website Peyamner.com. The arrested are aged between 13 and 25 years old and were today transported from the Ettelaat prison to the court.

In related news, Peyamner.com stated that in the city of Meriwan the Ettelaat has asked the private communication centres, where people make phone calls abroad, to provide the names of those who make phone calls abroad. The centres have been instructed by the Ettelaat that from now and on, they have to keep record of anyone who makes international call and provide these records on regular bases to the intelligence services.

Sayyid Kemal Asferem, known as Shivane Qadri, was killed on 9 July 2005 in the district of ’Pisttep’ in the city of Mahabad. Qadiri, with two other young Kurdish men were sitting around a spring in the Shiyegan in the village of Hemzawa, when the Iranian troops together with 60 Kurdish paramilitary Village Guards surrounded him. Qadiri tried to escape in his car, but the troops fired at him and injured him.
According to local sources, he then tried with the help of the people to escape again, but was shot once more. The Iranian soldiers captured him, kicked him with their boots and drove over him with a motorbike. A rope was then tied around his waist and the other end of the rope to a military car. The soldiers then pulled him all the way to the next town, Urmiya. The Revolutionary Union of Kurdistan (Yeketi Shorishgerani Kurdistan) has stated that Qadiri was one of their members.
