TEHRAN: Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said Friday they have launched deadly strikes against “terrorists” across the border in Iraqi Kurdistan, reports AFP.

“Terrorist camps and training centres were attacked from Wednesday,” with rockets, drones and artillery, the Guards said in a statement published by their official website Sepahnews.

The statement did not name the groups targeted in the strikes, but said they were behind efforts to “disrupt security” in Iran.

Iran had warned authorities in Iraqi Kurdistan not to allow “terrorists groups” to set up training camps close to the border with Iran, the statement said, but the warning “had not been heeded”.
