HRK: A colonel and a soldier killed

Wednesday, 28 July 2010

MERIWAN, Eastern Kurdistan, -- The Defence Forces of Eastern Kurdistan (HRK) released a statement in relation to the latest clash between their forces and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
HRK claimed that as a result of the clash a colonel and a soldier killed and 4 more soldiers were injured in the clash between HRK and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
In the operation which happened on 24th July 2010 one Kurdish guerrilla has lost his life.
Accordingly Iranian regime has been trying to eradicate the Kurds and their political parties mainly PJAK by imposing fatal war, hanging people and burning the jungles of their land.
The Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJAK) was founded in 2004 as the result of the systematic and continuous oppression of the Kurdish nation by the Iranian government. PJAK upholds the libertarian ideology of Apoism which advocates an ecological-democratic society with gender equality. PJAK’s main goal is to democratise Iranian system and to create a democratic con-federation for the long- oppressed Kurds.
Its initial objective is to limit and change the authority of the Islamic Republic of Iran and to democratise it in four fundamental areas; the nation, society, citizenship and to evolve the state into a self-governing institution able to deliver public services and to maintain public security.
For the past 6 years PJAK has been the most influential organisation of the Kurdish population in the Eastern Kurdistan and has the strongest popular support in this part of the Kurdistan. Three particular dynamics forces namely women, students and the youths have been increasingly joining PJAK with the aims of transforming their society. Women constitute more than 48% PJAK’s membership from the bottom to the leadership of the organisation.
