An Iranian Kurdish activist has survived an assassination attempt after he was “seriously injured” in a knife attack on Friday in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden, local media reported on Saturday.
Sadegh Zarza, 64, who is a member of opposition group the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI), was reportedly stabbed at least 15 times by a 38-year-old Iranian national in broad daylight in Leeuwarden, the Leeuwarden Courant newspaper said citing eyewitnesses.
Zarza survived, “but he has been hit very badly,” Zarza’s brother told the newspaper, adding that he has injuries in the head, neck, stomach, and chest.
Zarza’s family, who says he has received death threats in the past, believe that Friday’s assassination attempt on the activist was “politically motivated.”
