Iran attacks militant groups in north Iraq
Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard has attacked a militant group’s base located in the north of neighbouring 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.
