Iran: IRGC attacks terrorists' positions in Iraqi Kurdistan

News sources reported Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)’s artillery attacks on the positions of terrorist groups in Iraqi Kurdistan.

According to the reports, the headquarters of some terrorist groups including the Komalah in Barbzin came under IRGC’s artillery attack.

Following the arrival of armed teams and a large amount of weapons by the terrorist groups to the border cities of Iran to create chaos in the country, the ground forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps attacked the headquarters of these groups in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Further details about the casualties and the material damages will be released later.

It was earlier reported that, Iran’s IRGC shells ‘terrorist positions’ in Iraq’s Erbil

The attack comes two months after the IRGC launched ballistic missiles at what it said was an Israeli base in Erbil.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has shelled an area in Erbil in neighbouring Iraq, targeting positions it said were held by “terrorist groups”.

The IRGC ground forces launched artillery fire on Iraq’s northern Kurdish regional capital early on Wednesday, according to the semi-official Tasnim news website.

There have been no reports of casualties in the shelling.

The IRGC’s website said in a statement that its ground forces dismantled an Erbil-based “terrorist team” inside Iran a day earlier and five members of the team were arrested in Baneh near Iran’s western border with Iraq.

Based on their confessions about plans to engage in “sabotage” operations in Iran, it said, the IRGC ground forces moved to target their bases in northern Iraq.

In mid-March, the IRGC launched ballistic missiles towards an area in Erbil which it said housed an Israeli “strategic centre”. It also warned that any further attacks by Israel will be met with a “harsh, decisive and destructive response”.

The missile launches had come after Israel killed two IRGC members in Syria in an air attack. There were also unconfirmed reports of an Israeli attack on a base in western Iran, which allegedly targeted Iranian drones.

At the time, the Iranian foreign ministry had also warned that it will not tolerate any security threats emanating from Iraqi soil.

In April, Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein and new parliament speaker, Mohammed al-Halbousi, led separate delegations to Tehran to hold high-level meetings with President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian.
