Female Peshmerga of Iran's Kurdistan Democratic Party

Begard, a woman Peshmerga: “In our community everyone is Peshmerga. It doesn't matter, man or woman. Equality manifests itself in free chose - if I decide that I'm going to the mountain my husband will take care of the children and the house. It doesn't mean that he is not a man! If he can share the responsibilities with me he is more masculine than those who can only hold a gun".

Mariwan is a Kurdish city located in northwestern Iran.

The statement also mentioned that on Saturday morning, Iranian soldiers ambushed Peshmerga fighters in Sawllawa near Mariwan city where a Peshmerga fighter was ‘martyred.’

Iran has recently started to shell several Kurdish villages near its border with the Kurdistan Region. Peshmerga fighters and those who help Peshmerga in the fight against Iranian soldiers are the primary targets.

PDKI; A growing number of Kurdish women have joined PDKI’s Peshmerga Forces. They have joined PDKI’s Peshmerga forces to take part in the resistance against the Islamic Republic of Iran and to defend the Kurdish people.

Since PDKI’s Peshmerga Forces returned to their former bases in the border area between eastern (Iranian) and southern (Iraqi) Kurdistan in May of 2015, an increasing number of young Kurdish men and women have joined the ranks of PDKI.

Since 1993, when PDKI left the Qandil Mountains and moved its bases into the heartland of southern Kurdistan, new recruits were trained in locations outside of the party’s traditional strongholds. With the gradual consolidation of the PDKI Peshmerga Forces in the Qandil mountains since last summer, a growing number of Kurdish activists have joined the Peshmerga Forces.

The Kurdistani Crescent

Every nation has the right to have a unified identity. Some have a unified identity under the umbrella of nationalism; others have it through religious solidarity; and still others have their solidarity as part of an economic block. For example, one understanding of the Arab unified identity is "United Arab nation", while the European Union has its identity under the umbrella of an economic union.

Most Islamic nations are divided between Sunnis and Shiites. A Sunni Crescent begins with Turkey and sweeps southward toward Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, encompassing the Gulf countries (the old Ottoman Empire). Turkey and Saudi Arabia usually compete to take the leadership of this crescent.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please join the Kurdish Community Center of California for the annual memorial massacre in Halabja. The attacks mark the only time since the Holocaust that poison gas has been used to kill men, women and children.
 
Late in the morning of March 16, 1988, the Iraqi army began bombing the Kurdish town of Halabja. An estimated 5,000 people died in Halabja from the lethal mix of mustard and Sarin gas, and VX nerve agent dropped on the town. Thousands more, as many as 15,000, have died, from long-term medical complications from the bombings, and the town has seen a huge spike in birth defects, cancer, infertility and miscarriages.
