Amin Gonbadi’s brother: Why should the PKK send Iranian youth to Syria?

Following the ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes, the Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch has arranged a conversation with the brother of Amin Gonbadi, a member of PJAK.

It seems that the PKK / PJAK train does not intend to stop for the death of Kurdish children and youth.

The approach of militant groups such as PJAK in the use of children in war is contrary to their commitment under the Geneva Convention not to use children under the age of 18.

Perhaps the deception and abduction of Kurdish teenagers, youth and, of course, children, and then arming and using them for the purposes and interests of the leaders of militant groups such as PJAK and the PKK, is the only achievement and gift of those claiming to defend the rights of the Kurdish people.

One of these children is “Amin Gonbady”.


The full text of the conversation with Amin Gonbadi’s brother is as follows:

Amin was very smart and hard-studying boy, and at the same time as studying, he always worked and helped support his family.

Unfortunately, due to the bad situation inside the family and the tensions that were created for Amin, the starting point was to distance himself from the family.

The conflicts that the family members unknowingly created for this young man kept him emotionally away from his family day by day, and unfortunately, this distance from the family caused the people who were lurking in this child to do their job. .

Amin was only 16 years old when he did not even finish high school, when he had been deceived and taken away with false promises and knowledge of family problems.

After Amin disappeared, we traveled to Iraq several times, but we were never informed about him or his whereabouts.

It was not long before it was announced that Amin had gone to Syria. He called us and always talked about his regrets and deception during the conversation. He wanted to come home. He expressed this wish multiple times.

He never seemed to have a chance to fully explain what had happened to him, but it was clear that he was looking for a way to return.

For a long time, there was no news of his call. The only news we received was that one day a PKK member called us and reported that Amin had been killed, and hung up without any further explanation.

What does 16-year-old Amin know about fighting?

Why should this young man, who is Iranian, be sent to Syria?

It was our right to know the cause of my little brother’s death or burial, and at least to be able to mourn at his grave. We don’t even know where his grave is.

IKHRW was not able to track down Amin’s obituary. It remains unclear whether his death was publicly announced or not, or under a different name.
