Major Kurdish opposition groups in a joint statement urged EU powers and US authorities to tighten sanctions against the Iranian regime amid nationwide protests, which caused the death of more than a hundred civilians and wounded thousands.
In the statement released last week, the Cooperation Centre of Iranian Kurdistan Political Parties have also called upon United Nation to stop Iran from further bloodsheds.
We call for “harsh sanctions of EU and The US on the military forces and their commanders,” the statement read, asking for a travel ban against the regime’s agents and military organizations which are responsible for killing people.
“We want the UN to put all its political effort and diplomatic influence to support demonstrations,” the statement said.
The Kurdish groups asked the international watchdog and human right activists to condemn the regime’s brutality against civilians, human and civil right activists.
The centre organized peaceful protesters among Kurdish diaspora all over Europe last week to show support to the protesters and the families and friends of the victims.
Nationwide protests in Iran over fuel price hikes were followed by regimes’ brutal crackdowns and complete shutdown of the country’s internet, creating an information blackout.
Amnesty international has so far confirmed the death of 115 civilians by the regime’s forces in Iran.
