While the important demonstrations caused by the Mahsa Amini death continue to be severely repressed by the power in Iran since September 13, 2022, how does power be articulated in the country?

Kurdistan of Iraq welcomes several Kurdish Iranian opposition groups which, historically, have led an armed insurrection against Tehran, even if in recent years their military activities have been down. However, they remain very critical on the social networks of the situation in Iran, sharing videos on the protest movement. In recent days, already, Iranian artillery fire has repeatedly targeted border areas of Kurdistan of Iraq, without making significant damage.

In response, Baghdad announced this Wednesday the "urgently" convocation of the Iranian ambassador to protest against attacks, Iraqi diplomacy castigating "unilateral and provocative actions". The United States has "strongly" condemned these strikes, and warned of Tehran against new attacks on the Kurdish Iranian opposition groups. Berlin for his part denounced an "unacceptable escalation".
