Iran – Kurdistan: Wafa Abdullahzadeh, 42-killed by her brother,December 2020
Wafa Abdullahzadeh was a mother of two children. After divorcing her husband, she met a man and planned to remarry. Since the city of Sardasht is small and very traditional, the relationship was considered disrespectful to the family. She was shot 4 times by her brother named “Avareh”. In a traditional and patriarchal family, a divorced woman and/or a woman falling in love is considered disgraceful.
