A source that witnessed the event told Student Eye that a group of youths that their numbers were about a hundred wanted to make Sara Square a Kurdish Tahrir Sqaure, so they started a campaign there. Their first activity was praying. While they were in the middle of their prayer, an anonymous, that is considered to be a police officer, attacked them with tear gas. Thus, three people were strongly injured and the rest of the others were run away before finishing their prayer.
Few minutes later the same group retried to start another activity. They, to prove their resilient decided to stay there for the rest of the night. Again, police came to arrest them. Protesters faced harsh treatment by the police forces and they were beaten severely. Many were arrested and many others ran away. Unfortunately, Dana Newzar, a student of the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani, who is also the spokesman of the group, is arrested. Student Eye, tried to know were Dana Newzer is now being held, but our efforts ended in vain. Therefore, Student Eye will not stop until it finds out where Newzer is, and students will show their contamination in a zero time to oblige security forces to release him. Updates will be posted soon.
