On Sunday as the farmers of “Up-Jalizi" village were working on their lands, the "ETKA" organization, which is affiliated with the Iranian Army, entered the village and with the assistance of governmental security forces attacked working female farmers.
"ETKA" organization had already confiscated 4000 ha of land previously owned by Arab farmers and today seeks to seize the remaining 1000 ha. From 1986 this village was a part of "Khuzestan" province which is inhabited by Arab majority, but currently it is part of the "Elam" province.
Ahwaz Human Right Organization "AHRO" strongly condemns the state terror of Iranian government and the violence against the farmers and inhabitant of the "Jalizi" village and calls for immediate and unconditioned release of the detainees and demands the farmlands to be handed over to their owners.
