The Human Rights Watch of Iranian Kurdistan has continued its ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes with “Dana Ahmadi”, another victim.
One of the consistent approaches of militant groups such as the PKK / PJAK is that after one or more years of the children being killed, they inform the families that their children have been killed and in most cases do not report their burial place.
According to most families, PJAK has often pressured them NOT to talk to the media about their children, so that they can continue to “violate the rights of Kurdish citizens” in the shadow of media silence.
Another point to consider is that 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.
In fact, this is a human rights violation that these groups are constantly insisting on.
For years, the poverty and unemployment of the youth of the west of the country have caused them to do anything to get rid of this situation, such as working in ‘kolberi’ cross-border smuggling.
Unfortunately, the biggest damage done to these young people is the Kurdish armed groups such as the PKK, whose members trick the youth with false promises to recruit them.
“Dana Ahmadi” was one of those young people who, due to poverty and, most importantly, family problems and their lack of love, led him to take a path that is almost irreversible.
The full text of the conversation with Dana Ahmadi’s brother is as follows:
Dana had no link to these groups, but unfortunately unemployment, family problems, as well as ruthlessness on the part of the family caused an acquaintance to take advantage of the situation and make some seemingly pleasant promises to deceive Dana.
The last time we went to our friend’s house, we found Dana’s backpack there, but he denied it and said that he did not know about his leaving, and said ‘only one day he came to our house, left his bag here and left’.
But since I had heard about his activities before and I knew that he was connected with the PKK, after much arguing, he confessed that he had encouraged his departure and told us that his departure would help him. He also said it would not help Dana to go and bring him back.
However, because my mother could not bear it, she went to Iraq to bring her son back, but unfortunately, the members of that group never allowed her to see her son even for a minute.
Since then, we are just waiting, we hope he will return home one day.
We ask all the people who are able to get news from Dana to make the heart of this family happy by presenting that news.
