Irans Revolutionary Guards used drones and missiles to strike the headquarters of a Kurdish militant group near Irans border with neighboring Iraqs Kurdistan region, the Iranian semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Friday.
“A large number of terrorists were killed and wounded in the attacks that had started from Wednesday to target terrorist headquarters and their training camps,” said the agency, citing a statement from the Guards.
A report from Tasnim in Arabic and a tweet in English from Irans Press TV described the strikes as taking place on the Iraqi side of the border. However, the full statement in Farsi said only that the strikes had taken place along the border.
The statement said the strikes were launched in retaliation for recent attacks by the group that killed at least five members of the Guards in northwest and western Iran.
“The Iraqi Kurdistan government is expected to take Irans warnings seriously and not allow terrorists to use its territory as a shelter to train, organize and endanger Irans sustainable security by carrying out terrorist attacks,” the statement said.
“The Guards … will respond harshly to any aggression against Irans security.”
