IRGC bombards mountains in Kurdistan region of Iraq

As the joint operation of Iran and Turkey against PKK forces in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq continues, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) bombarded the positions of Kurdish militia groups that oppose the Islamic Republic in the Kurdistan Region.

According to Hengaw Human Rights Organization, the IRGC bombarded the mountains in Erbil province near the city of Choman for two days. Forces of the Democratic Party of Iran’s Kurdistan, Democratic Party of Kurdistan, and Komalah Party are positioned in those heights.

Choman is close to the city of Piranshahr in the Kurdistan province of Iran.

IRGC forces targeted these areas on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday, the IRGC artillery along with Turkish army drones targeted the Alaneh area near the border city of Haji Omeran.

The Turkish Defense Ministry announced that the country’s commando forces have been positioned in northern Iraq for ground assaults against PKK forces. The ministry also announced that the airstrikes and bombardment of these forces will continue.

The government of Iraq has summoned the Turkish ambassador to Baghdad and objected to these attacks. The leader of the Fatah Movement in Iraq’s parliament demanded that the government bring a complaint against Turkey in the UN Security Council.
