Iranian border guards fatally shot kolbar Salar Ahmadi on 9 May in the Qandil mountainous region between Sardasht, West Azerbaijan Province, and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

The Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN) has learned that Ahmadi was shot when border guards opened fire on a group of kolbars with DShKs on the territory of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The body of the kolbar, from Nalas in West Azerbaijan Province, has been taken to a medical facility in Qaladza in the Kurdistan Region.

Over the past three weeks, at least five kolbars have been shot dead by Iranian border guards in Baneh and Saqqez in Kurdistan Province and Sardasht in West Azerbaijan Province.
