International Desk: Iran launched missiles and kamikaze drone attacks targeting the bases of separatist Kurdish fighters in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. The attack was carried out by members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards on Tuesday, according to a report by the country’s semi-official Tasnim news agency.
Tehran has accused members of various Iranian Kurdish groups of taking refuge in Iraq’s Kurdistan region to incite the anti-government protests that have been ongoing in Iran for more than two months. That is why the attack on Kurdish separatists in Iraq has been reported by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
Missiles and kamikaze drones were fired at a base of the separatist terrorist group Free Kurdistan Party near Kirkuk in today’s operation, Tasnim said.
Since November 14, in response to anti-security measures in various cities of Iran bordering Iraq, members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have launched new attacks against separatist groups.
At least two people were killed and 10 injured in rocket and drone attacks on the headquarters of Iranian Kurdish groups in Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region last week. Source: Reuters.
