Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a story of an agha in Barwar whose name was Rašid Bek. He made trouble between the Assyrians and the people of Barzan. Pǝtto said to Christian people that each of them should stab the Kurd in front of him. The Barzan Kurds were slipping, but the Christians were not slipping since they were wearing sheepskin shoes. Each time they slipped, the Christians grabbed them, until when they had finished coming down the valley, Pǝtto fired his gun, and each one killed the man in front of him. They killed him with washing-boards, the washing-boards used to wash clothes with. They are called xoṭoryaθa.
