IRGC targets terrorist positions on border with Iraqi Kurdistan

The IRGC, in a statement on Friday afternoon, announced that it has been pounding the strongholds and positions of “counter-revolutionary terrorist groups sponsored by the global arrogance”.

Hawzah News Agency - Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has staged a multi-pronged offensive on terrorist positions along the Iranian border with Iraq’s northern semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, inflicting heavy losses on them.

The IRGC, in a statement on Friday afternoon, announced that it has been pounding the strongholds and positions of “counter-revolutionary terrorist groups sponsored by the global arrogance” in the Kurdish region since Wednesday.

The raids took place after Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) authorities did not heed the IRGC’s earlier warnings that terrorist groups are using border areas to train, organize and dispatch terror teams into Iran.

The statement added that the raids came in the wake of a recent deadly terror attack against IRGC members as well as “desperate attempts” by the terrorists to undermine the security in some regions of Iran’s western and northwestern areas.

It further noted that IRGC’s missile, drone and artillery units targeted and destroyed the terrorist groups’ bases and training centers during the operation. A large number of terrorists were also killed and injured in the process, the statement added.

The IRGC also highlighted that terrorists have been trying to use villagers as human shields, urging Iraqi Kurdistan people to stay away from the positions of terrorist groups and disavow them.
