Iranian Ahmad Mola Nissi, one of the founders of the Arab Wrestling Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz, considered a terrorist group by the Government of Tehran, was shot dead on Wednesday night in The Hague. His identity has been confirmed by the Dutch police, and by the organization itself through Facebook, where they recognize him as his president and qualifies as a martyr. According to this organization, Iran would be behind death. The Dutch foreign ministry is now silent about what has happened. Nor has the Iranian embassy been pronounced. The movement is a nationalist group fighting for the independence of the province of Khuzestan, located in the southwest of the country, on the border with Iraq. When Baghdad attempted to annex Khuzestan, the Iran-Iraq War erupted (1980-1988).
The deceased walked with one of his children when he was shot in the middle of the street. According to his supporters, he fled Iran in 2015 and lived in Holland since then. He had also obtained Dutch nationality. I was 52 years old, married and five children. One of his nephews, Qasem Naissy, a refugee in turn since 2009, has described his death as "reckoning from Iran." The shooting took place in the urban center of the Hague and the emergency service tried unsuccessfully to revive the victim. The police arrested a guy who tried to escape when the area was off, and he's being interrogated. Eyewitnesses related to the victim said that it was "a political crime" and that "Iran had already tried before".
Mola Nissi Founded in 1999 the Arab Wrestling Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz, which in 2017, claimed the authorship of an attack on an oil pipeline in Khuzestan. The province is rich in oil and the Iranian authorities denied the flowery of pipelines. The insurgents, however, assured that they had been destroyed. In 2005, the same group blew up four bombs in Ahvaz that caused eight dead and 75 injured. A year later, two other artifacts once again killed nine people and injured 46. The members of the movement belong to the Arab minority Ahvazi, one of the most persecuted communities in the country.
