Adel Mohajer and Loghman Aji, both members of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) from Piranshahr, West Azerbaijan province, were assassinated today in the village of Halsho in the Qaladze region of Sulaimaniyah, Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

The Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN) has learned that political activist Saadi Moradpour was also injured in the shooting.

The PDKI issued a statement saying that the killing of Mohajer and Aji was part of a “deliberate attack by the Islamic Republic of Iran”.

This incident follows the killing by the Islamic Republic of Iran of Musa Babakhani, a senior member of the PDKI, and Behrouz (Rebin) Rahimi, a Kurdish political activist, in Sulaimaniyah and Erbil in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq last year.
