“I am 22 years old and I have come from Eastern Kurdistan to go to Sulaimani for our great Sheikh’s funeral. It was initially not in your plans to come here, but the Sheikh’s son announced and said:
Let all my father’s Darvishs come and fear nothing. Hopefully nothing will happen. When we arrived at the Bashmakh border, they stopped us at the Iranian side and Iranian forces fired at us. Me and a few others were wounded, but fortunately my wound is not deep. They wanted to stop us at the KR’s border as well, but later they were very helpful”.
