The Iranian regime has executed a Kurdish activist in connection with the bombing of the strongholds of the two largest Kurdish opposition parties in the town of Koesengk in the Iraqi province of Kirstan (65 kilometers from the Iranian border), killing dozens of dead and wounded, media said on Saturday.
Fourteen people were killed, including two senior members of the opposition Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP). And wounding more than 40 others, according to medical sources in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
The official spokesman of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Karim Parwezi, told “Sky News Arab” that the bombing targeted a meeting of party leaders east of Erbil, the capital of the region.
According to Parwezi, “the missiles missed the meeting place,” but hit the party headquarters and civilian houses of the party’s supporters in the town of Koya.
He explained that medium-range missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles were used in the bombing.
The bombing coincided with the execution of the Iranian regime of the Kurdish activist Ramin Hussein Panahi despite international appeals and rights to stop the execution.
