Iran, PMOI/MEK, April 29, 2018 – Shop owners and Bazar merchants in the city of Baneh, near the western borders of Iran, again closed their shops on Sunday for the 15th day in the row.

This general strike in the city of Babeh, which has expanded to 3 major western provinces of Kurdistan, Kermanshah and west Azerbaijan, started on April 15th in protest to the closer of border crossings between Iran and Iraq and also against the sudden increase of tariffs on imported merchandize.

It is worth noting that merchants of western provinces, bordering with Iraq, live on the money they make from cross border dealings.
