According to a report received by Hengaw Human Rights Organization, on Thursday, February 25 , 2021, the Iranian  Intelligence Office in Piranshahr handed over the corpses of Abdullah Naderi, 36, and Osman Naderi, 26, to their families 24 hours after their death , and one hour after the IRGC  forces filled their graves with concrete.

A relative of Naderi's family, who did not want to be named for security reasons, told Hengaw that the Iranian intelligence service had handed over the corpses on condition that no ceremony be held and that the Naderi’s family had promised not to speak to any media outlet.

Hengaw  had previously reported that at around 2 pm on Wednesday, February 24 , 2021, Iranian security forces, including the Ministry of Intelligence and the Iranian Islamic  Revolutionary Guards forces of Hamzeh military base in Urmia, opened  afire on a civilian  car on  Shinabad - Zidan road near Piranshahr and killed its passengers  identified  Abdullah Naderi and Osman Naderi, who were brothers.

According to an eyewitness, the Iranian security forces, who came from Urmia in three vehicles, opened fire on their car  before it stopped, and the two passengers  lost their lives.  The eyewitness sent a video to Hengaw stating that more than 50 bullets had hit the car windows .

Iranian Ministry of Intelligence released a statement yesterday stating that a "terrorist" operation in Piranshahr had been foiled and that two people had been killed.  The two were called terrorists by the Iranian security agencies while they were civilians and residents of Piranshahr.
