LOST in PJAK: Daoud Osmanpour (Part 15)

In a special note to the Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch, a former PJAK member examines the forced disappearance and death of Iranian Kurdish teenagers in the PJAK / PKK terrorist group, and provides the watchdog with specific information about them.

It is worth mentioning that all this information has been obtained from the official website of HPG, PKK’s Turkish military wing.


Name: Daoud Osmanpour

Company Name: Agir Chia

City: Mako

Date of birth: –

registery date: –

Date of death: 2017 – Dersim – Tunceli, Turkey

Daoud was one of the children of villages on the border between Iran and Turkey, who fell victim to the deceptive policies of the PKK and PJAK and their inhumane actions. The uneducated children of these areas in the mountains were deceived by PJAK forces and left for Qandil in the hope of a better life; But even their bodies have not been given back to their families.

There are no facilities in these areas, and for this reason, children and adolescents are easily deceived and rejoice in false promises, in pursuit of a better life.

As a result of these actions, many families were broken up and many mothers were beaten and died.

Daoud went to the mountains during the summer holidays to help his old father. They had livestock and their financial situation was not good. The number of children in the family was also high and he was the middle child of the family, but he was considered as a help to the father and the family, not as a child that should study.

PJAK quickly handed Daoud over to the PKK, like dozens of other Iranian Kurdish children, teenagers and young people, and they eventually sent him to Dersim in Turkey. They changed the name of Daoud, the son of Zhivar Kurdieh and Saeed to Agar Chia. It did not take long for this young Kurd to fall victim and be killed on July 20, 2017 in a clash with the Turkish army.

PKK / PJAK members left his body behind, didn’t bury it by themselves, and his family did not even know where he was buried. He was probably put in an anonymous grave by the Turkish government, or ripped to pieces by the wild animals that roam the hills there.

Poor education and lack of resources were the causes of him being deceived so easily.

Despite their extreme poverty, his family visited Qandil several times, but returned home disappointed to find no information about their son. His mother has knocked every door she could find.

The PKK sent Daoud to Turkey to drive him away from Iran, to prevent him from being able to escape and return home, and he was sent to an area he did not know as a teenager.

He did not know Turkish and had trouble to communicate with his comrades, and was eventually killed on Turkish soil.
