IRGC strikes terrorist positions in Iraq’s Erbil

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) pounded positions of terrorists operating near the country’s western borders in Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

The IRGC’s Ground Force launched the attack on Wednesday morning. Tasnim News Agency reported that the terrorist bastions had been targeted by artillery fire.

Iraqi Kurdish media reported that an artillery shell had landed in a village in the Sidekan area near the Iranian border, around 100 km northeast of Erbil.

The IRGC said its Ground Force had earlier arrested all five members of a terrorist team who were planning to carry out mischievous activities on Iran’s soil. It said they were arrested in the Iranian city of Baneh, Press TV wrote.

Confessions made by the detained terrorists led to the IRGC’s attack on the positions of the terrorists on Wednesday morning, an IRGC statement said.

In March, the IRGC carried out an attack against an "Israeli strategic center" in Erbil. The attack reportedly killed and injured several Israeli operatives.

Also in September, the IRGC launched an attack in northern Iraq, where it destroyed four bases belonging to hostile groups.
