TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) confirmed on Sunday that it had launched a missile attack on a center in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region which was used for training anti-Iran terrorists and hosted a meeting of terrorist leaders.
In a statement on Sunday, the IRGC confirmed that it had fired missiles at the base of terrorists inside the Iraqi Kurdistan Region on September 8.
Over the past months, terrorist groups affiliated with global arrogance have taken hostile moves from inside the Iraqi Kurdistan Region against Iran’s border areas, the statement said, adding that several terrorist teams have been dispatched to Iran to carry out acts of sabotage and upset security in Iran’s western provinces of West Azerbaijan, Kurdistan and Kermanshah.
Thanks to the IRGC’s vigilance and preparedness, a number of operations were conducted over the past weeks which dealt heavy blows to the terrorists in Marivan and Kamyaran border regions, it said.
Heads of the terrorist groups, however, did not heed the serious warnings from the Iraqi Kurdistan Region’s authorities about Iran’s resolve to destroy their bases and about the need for an end to their aggressive and terrorist activities, the statement added.
It then confirmed that on September 8, the IRGC Aerospace Force’s missile unit, in cooperation with the IRGC Ground Force’s drone unit, carried out a successful operation and hit the camp and meeting of leaders of one of the “dirty criminal groups and the training center of proxy terrorists” with seven short-range ground-to-ground missiles.
Authentic reports indicate that the center of plot against the Islamic Republic has been destroyed in the missile attack and tens of leaders and major elements of the terrorist group have been killed and injured, the statement added.
The crushing response proved that the IRGC and the other Iranian armed forces are determined to safeguard the country’s borders and its territorial integrity and uphold the Islamic Revolution’s goals, it stressed, concluding that the terrorists hired by the espionage services of the enemies could never harm Iran’s security.
