Iran’s Guard fires on militant groups based in northern Iraq

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard on Saturday attacked a militant group’s base located in the north of neighboring Iraq, according to Iranian state media.

IRNA said the Guard’s ground forces fired artillery from positions within Iran’s West Azerbaijan province, attacking what it described as a “terrorist group” based across the border in Iraq. The report did not elaborate.

IRNA added more details will be announced later.

The semi-official Tasnim news agency, believed to be close to Iran’s military, quoted the Guard’s statement as saying the operation will continue in order to ensure border security.

In 2021, the Guard launched an attack using heavy weapons and drones on what it also called the bases of “terrorist” groups in northern Iraq.

Iran and Iraq have close political and military ties, and Tehran provided extensive military support in the war against the extremist Islamic State group.
