Tehran, Iran, Aug. 17 – Dozens of Iranian Kurds have been arrested over the past few days in the course of a new crackdown by Iran’s State Security Forces (SSF) on political activists in the western province of Kurdistan, according to a local rights group.

Among those detained in the city of Piranshahr are two teenagers one of whom is under the age of eighteen.

Arrest warrants have been issued for at least 40 people, according to the Kurdistan Human Rights Organisation.

In the city of Saqqez agents of the SSF raided the home of political activist Hossein Mohammadi. He was arrested after a brawl with the SSF agents.

Iranian Kurdistan has been a hotbed of anti-government protests and since 2005 Kurdish youths have repeatedly clashed with security forces. A number of demonstrators have been killed by agents of the SSF during such clashes.

In July, five Iranian soldiers were killed in clashes with rebels near the Kurdish town of Qal’eh Rash.
