Ronahî TV is a Kurdish television channel focusing on Kurds around the world. The channel was launched back in 2012 and broadcasts from EU countries and Syria to audiences mainly in Kurdish, but also in Arabic and English.
Eutelsat on 14 April 2017 expressed its intention “to remove” the ability for Ronahi TV to broadcast, on grounds of the KCK allegedly being a terrorist organisation and broadcasting statements through Eutelsat networks. The EFJ alledges that Eutelsat is taking action due to pressure from RTÜK (Turkish Radio Television Supreme Council) to remove them.
Several Ronahi TV-employed journalists have died or been wounded in the Syrian Civil War, among them are:
- Mustefa Mihemed, who died from injuries related to a mine explosion on July 13 2016
- Kendal Cudi, who was injured in the same mine explosion as Mustefa
- Zekeriya Şêxo, who was wounded in the Turkish military operation in Afrin
