Mohammad’s father, Kazem Sawari, was executed in 1996 by the Iranian occupation regime on charges of acting against the country’s security and “fighting God” by blowing up oil pipelines.

“Rofyea” city is located 25 km west of the city of Howeyzeh and in the border strip with Iraq and it is 3 km away from “Hor Al-Azim” wetland.
