Iranian forces deal severe blow to terrorist forces in Kurdistan region

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has once again targeted the positions of terrorist groups operating near the country’s western borders in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

The IRGC’s Ground Force pounded the positions of terror groups with multiple rocket launchers, precision-strike weapons and drones, according to a report published by Tasnim news agency.

The report comes as the commander of the IRGC’s Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base said security forces have arrested more than 100 elements of groups of separatists and terrorists, including the so-called Komala Party and the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI), who had a role in the recent riots in Iran.

Brigadier General Mohammad Taqi Osanlou said that Iran’s northwestern borders are generally secure but the enemy has managed in a few cases to sneak weapons through the frontiers to stoke riots in Iran. Such attempts have, however, been met with fierce reactions from the Iranian security forces.
