Two Kurdish border porters –known as Kolbar- have been injured at the Ghotour border areas (Kutul) of Khoy as a result of being shot by Turkey’s military forces on January 26 and transferred by a Van to a hospital in Turkey, sources told Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).
Informed sources in Ghotour have told KHRN that both Hussain Hadizadeh, 29, and Ali Hadizadeh, 22, were cousins from Giuran village.
