Basnews English –  27 July 2016  – SULAYMANIYAH – Iranian Kurdish opposition parties are trying to form one joint Kurdish front in the face of the threats of the Iranian government against Kurds in Iranian Kurdistan.

Mohamed Nazif Qadiri told BasNews on July 27 that six Iranian Kurdish opposition sides have met twice over the past weeks, and in their next scheduled meeting they will discuss the necessity of forming a joint front as well as supporting the Kurdish political and civil movements inside Iran.”Political disputes however are the major obstacles in creating the front,” Qadiri said.Anwar Mohamedi, a politburo member of Society of Revolutionary Toilers of Iranian Kurdistan Party (KŞZK), revealed to BasNews that the ground for establishing a joint front is ready, although there are still some barriers which the sides have not yet overcome.

The six Iranian Political Kurdish opposition parties held two inclusive meetings in Sulaymaniyah province over the last few weeks, and they are going to meet for the third time to discuss a joint strategy for the struggle against Iran. After two decades of a cessation of military operations against Iran, the Iranian Kurdish opposition forces have now resumed their military struggle against Iran to fight for freedom and the rights of Kurds in the country. Since the resumption of their military activities in Iran’s Kurdish north west, ongoing military confrontations have been taking place between the Iranian troops and Kurdish forces. Moreover, the Iranian army conducted offensives against the Iranian Kurdish forces on the border areas between KRG and Iran, which have resulted in the wounding of a number of civilians and damaging their properties.
