Borhan Kamangar, a Kurdish civilian from Kamyaran, was arrested by security forces yesterday at his workplace and transferred to an unknown location. He is a member of the “Coral” band as well as the nephew of Kurdish activist “Hossein Kamangar” held in custody since January.

“This morning, Tuesday August 06, security forces raided the Kurdish artist’s mobile phone shop. They then searched his family home and confiscated a number of his personal belongings. “, a reliable source in Kamyaran told Kurdish Human Rights Network (KHRN).

Meanwhile, there was a “Twitter storm” calling for public attention to Hossein Kamangar‘s situation last night. Kamangar’s family have been summoned and interrogated several times so far. One of the demands of the Intelligence Office from this family is to refrain from disclosing information about the situation of Hussein Kamangar.

It should be noted that Borhan Kamangar is also a member of the Coral band in Kamyaran. Last year, this band released a clip in support of Kurdish resistance in Efrin.
