HRANA- A Kurdish citizen was shot and killed on Sunday in the western border region of the country.

HRANA has learned that state security forces opened fire on a group of citizens living in the border region of the city of Marivan, killing one person. Security forces claim that they were smuggling contraband.

No information is available on the identity of the person killed.

Citizens living along the western border of the country are routinely killed by security forces who claim they are combating smuggling. This is while the western border, a major drug smuggling point, is lacking sufficient supervision.
