The report on human rights violations in November 2021 was compiled by the efforts of the Kurdistan Human Rights Association, citing reports compiled by this human rights organization. This report is not a complete report due to the lack of permission of the Iranian government to human rights organizations and groups and depicts only a part of human rights violations in Kurdistan.

The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran violates the civil, political and social rights of the Kurdish people by detaining Kurdish citizens, and has continued to do so. Violations of freedom of opinion and expression, violations of the right to life and personal security, and government discrimination are cases that are perpetrated daily by the Iranian government.


This month, the policy of executing compatriots has continued, so that one person has been executed in the provinces of Kurdistan.

Assassination and enforced disappearances

It should be noted that the assassination and murder of citizens by the Iranian government has continued. In this context, 4 citizens have been killed in a suspicious manner and under the torture of Iranian security agencies. .Also, direct fire was fired at a group of citizens, injuring 6 people.

Arrest and imprisonment

This month, we have witnessed the continuous arrest and imprisonment of citizens in Urmia, Sanandaj, Kermanshah, Mahabad, Khorramabad, Ilam, Hamedan and Lorestan. According to statistics compiled this month, three compatriots, civil and political activists have been arrested and three prisoners have been sentenced to prison. It should be noted that 8 of the detainees are women.

kolber and the merchant

The kolbers, as always, have been directly attacked by the Iranian armed forces. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is known as a terrorist movement, and the Iranian Border Guards this month also directly targeted the kolbers, killing 2 kolbers and wounding 11 others. In most cases, the kolbers were the direct target of these forces and were killed by the Iranian military. It should be noted that so far no institution in Iran and Kurdistan has taken constructive action in this regard and no one has been prosecuted for this crime.


The number of suicides of citizens is increasing and we have witnessed an increase in suicides of citizens, especially young people and women. Suicides and murders of 18 others have been reported this month. Of these, 16 committed suicide and 2 others were killed.
