Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps said the attack targeted a “terrorist” group in Kurdish areas of northern Iraq.
At least one person has been killed after an Iranian-fired rocket hit the headquarters of Iran’s Kurdish party in Koye city near Erbil, the capital of northern Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
Koye Mayor Tariq Haidari said 10 other people were injured in Monday’s attack.
Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency said the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was behind the attack, targeting a “terrorist group” with missiles and drones.
The IRGC has launched attacks on Iran’s Kurdish militant opposition bases in northern Iraq’s Kurdish areas since the September 16 death of Iranian Kurdish woman Masa Amini.
Amini’s death after being detained by Iran’s so-called moral police has led to weeks of protests.
Iran has accused Kurdish militants in northern Iraq of fueling the unrest that has ruled the country.
According to Kurdish security sources, the drones targeted two bases of Iranian Kurdish rebels near Erbil and Sulaymaniyah.
Kurdish rights groups in Iran said on Twitter that Revolutionary Guards had targeted a Komala party base in Sulaymaniyah with six drones and a base of the Democratic Party of Iran Kurdistan near Erbil with four missiles. .
In September, the Revolutionary Guard issued a statement saying such operations would continue unless the “terrorist group’s” bases were removed and local authorities “acted according to their promises.”
