Dear friends,

Please find below and attached a Public Statement that Amnesty International issued today on five men from Iran’s Kurdish minority who have been subject to enforced disappearances since 23 and 24 June 2017.

Ramin Hossein Panahi, a 22-year-old member of the Komala armed opposition group, was arrested on 23 June 2017 after he took part in armed clashes with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in the neighborhood of Shalman, in Sanandaj, Kurdistan Province, northwest Iran. His fate and whereabouts have been unknown since then.

Kobani: Landscape of Resistance and Childhood Nostalgia

 The opening image of the film vividly shows endless rows of tents against a grey and menacing sky, engulfing refugees in a distance, with children inside a classroom in a new refugee camp. The young talented Kurdish filmmaker, Apo Bazidi, had gone to the refugee camp in Suruc as a volunteer in in 2014 in the thick of the battle for Kobane. Having just graduated from the prestigious film school of the University of Southern California, he wanted to help the refugees of the ISIS genocidal war against Kurds and to “record every day of his journey in the camps and on the front-lines to share their stories with the world”, which initially had turned away from facing the existential threat that Kurds faced.

Inspired by the invincible and selfless spirit of resistance spearheaded by women, and shocked by the savagery of ISIS, Bazidi was keen on documenting the sufferings and horrors that the refugees faced daily, some of which were reflected in the drawings of the camp children, showing violent scenes and fleeing families in the midst of atrocities.

Iraq Situation Report:  April 21 - May 5, 2017


By Jessa Rose Dury-Agri and the ISW Iraq Team
 
 
ISIS is setting conditions for its annual Ramadan campaign, anticipated to begin on May 26 with intent to exploit security vulnerabilities across the country. ISIS tested security in and around Baghdad by conducting a successful Suicide Vehicle-Borne IED (SVBIED) attack in central Baghdad and attempting additional attacks in Balad, Tarmiyah, and Jurf al-Sakhr.
 
ISIS strained Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) resources by increasing the tempo of attacks in Ramadi and far west Anbar Province. ISIS attempted numerous attacks in Salah al-Din province, which the ISF foiled.
 
The attacks indicate ISIS's continued attack capabilities in this zone. ISIS attacked Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) near Mosul in a potential bid to incite sectarian violence and detract from Mosul operations.

Erol Özkoray: " Mustafa Kamal based his Republican regime on the nationalist ideology of a Turkic race whereby Anatolia had to be "cleansed" of all "foreign" elements. Policies of ethnic, cultural, economic and social cleansing eliminated much of the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek groups albeit failed to do so with the Kurds - hence the Kurdish problem today."
