Government forces attack citizens in Sulaymaniyah

Government forces attacked the people protesting in front of a heavily guarded Sulaymaniyah Defense Council, with gases and real weapons.

Congress members who wanted to gather in front of the Sulaymaniyah Defense Council upon the call of Kongreya Dengê Nerazî were taken into custody by government forces.

Despite the heavy presence of the government forces, dozens of citizens organised a protest in front of the Sulaymaniyah Defense Council.

The government forces attacked the crowd with tear gas and real ammunition.

While many civilians and journalists suffered the intervention of the government forces, the protests continue to grow and the government forces continue to intervene to disperse the mass.
