Kolbari is the phenomenon of systematic poverty and unemployment in Kurdistan, and people are forced to seek refuge in Kolbari, while government officials are not making any effort to solve the livelihood problems of the People of Kurdistan, and the killing of Kolbars has become common news, and this is a dangerous alarm for the people of Kurdistan. Police forces, revolutionary guards, or Border Guards directly shoot the Kolbars and kill or injure a number of them every day.
