The Human Rights Watch of Iranian Kurdistan has continued its ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crime with the brother of “Mohammad Amini”, another victim.
One of the consistent approaches of militant groups such as the PKK / PJAK is that, one or more years after the children are killed, families are informed that their children have been killed, and in most cases do not report their burial spot.
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. The PKK / PJAK has long been intertwined in talks about the subject of child soldiers, but more importantly, these groups deceive and arm underage children and adolescents.
But the question is, what is the reason for the sudden announcement of the death of these children even a few years after their death?
According to statistics released in recent years, more than 50 percent of those killed were child soldiers. What is it that makes these children quickly announce the names of those killed in the war by the PKK media after several months of membership? What is hidden behind this news? Is the PKK trying to destroy the identities of children by announcing this news so that it can use them in its secret operations?
One of these child soldiers was Mohammad Amini, who was abducted by PJAK elements at the age of fourteen.
The full text of the conversation with Mohammad Amini’s brother is as follows:
“My brother Mohammad was just a child and always went to the mountains to play with his friends. Since our family had no approach or interest in any group, these elements that roam the mountains of the Golan plateau nearby, certainly deceived my little brother.”
“Since Muhammad was the youngest child in the family, none of us left any work to him and we provided everything for him as much as we could, so we can not say that Muhammad was an easy target due to lack of love or lack of finances at home. I still wonder what trick and promise they used to deceive him?”
“Of course, it should also be taken into account that Muhammad was only 14 years old at that time and it can be said that he did not have a proper understanding of those groups. After Muhammad disappeared, we looked everywhere for him but could not find him. Eventually, after many inquiries, we found out that PJAK elements had kidnapped him, so we went to their headquarters several times, but unfortunately they did not allow us to visit.”
“It had been a while since a person from that group came to our house and announced that he could return Mohammad for 60 million tomans. Muhammad was our whole life and we were ready to do anything for him, so we knocked on every door we could and sorted the money, but unfortunately that person disappeared completely after receiving the money, and there was no news of Muhammad. We were devastated.”
“It had been 15 months since he was abducted, and they suddenly called us and said that my brother Mohammad had been killed and that you should not look for his body because there was no body and do not try to come to our headquarters.”
“They took our brother from us, extorted money from us, and finally shamelessly told us that Muhammad was dead! The worst was that they said ‘there was no corpse’ and ‘you are not allowed to look for him’.
