Security forces arrested a Kurdish civilian, Taher Ziveh, in Piranshahr, West Azerbaijan Province, on 22 May and took him to an undisclosed location.

The Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN) has learned that security forces raided Ziveh’s family home and arrested him without presenting a warrant.

His current whereabouts and the charges against him remain unknown.

This incident coincided with the arrest of two other Kurdish civilians in the city, Salah Soltani and Amir Fagheh, by security forces.
