Sina Rasoulzadeh, a 19-year-old kolbar from Sardasht, West Azerbaijan Province, was shot dead by Iranian border guards in the Hangeh-ye Zhal border area of Baneh, Kurdistan Province, on 28 May.

The incident occurred when a group of kolbars in the area came under fire from the border guards.

Rasoulzadeh’s body was taken to Salahuddin Ayoubi Hospital in Baneh, and it has not yet been released to his family.

In the past month, six kolbars—Shwana Ahmadpour, Hemin Ahmadi, Jalal Sohrabi, Ata Rostampour, Salar Ahmadi, and Vahid Ghaderpour—have also been killed by border guards’ gunfire in the border areas of Baneh, Saqqez, and Sardasht in the provinces of Kurdistan and West Azerbaijan.
