Iranian Border Guards Kill 1 Kurdish Porter, Injure 5 Others

Maf News -The Iranian armed forces opened fire at Kurdish porters (better known as Kolber) on Monday, killing one of them, said a source.

Five others were also injured by direct fire from the Iranian border guards, Kurdistan24 cited a source from Hajiomaran border crossing between the Kurdistan Region and Iran.

Lack of employment and harsh economic situation across the Kurdish provinces of Iran has put the population in a hard situation to earn a living, most of them risking their lives to work as porters between Iran and Kurdistan Region, where they need to survive the Iranian soldiers’ bullets to cross each time.
