RNA - A senior military official broke the news on Tuesday, recounting that incident took place in the western city of Marivan, in Kurdistan Province.
Deputy Commander of Iranian Border Guards Mohammad Kazem Taqavi added that a large number of weapons and ammunitions were also seized from the group of terrorists who were trying to penetrate the country to commit sabotage.
As the province shared borders with Iraqi region of Kurdistan, many anti-Iranian terrorists use Iraqi territories to stage attacks and ambushes on Iranian security forces.
According to Fars News Agency, Marivan is 125 km to the west of the provincial capital, Sanandaj, bordering Iraqi Kurdistan. The city shares a 100-km border with Iraq's Sulaymaniyah.
On September 8, Iranian missiles targeted the headquarters of the KDP-I and the Democratic Party of the Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) terrorist groups in Koya. The missile attack was in retaliation of an earlier attack by anti-Iranian terrorists.
The missiles specifically targeted the KDP-I’s political bureau, the PDKI’s training center, and a Peshmerga complex.
According to the KDP-I’s statement, the bombardment killed 14 members of the two parties and injured 40 more. The Secretary of KDP-I, Mustafa Mawludi, and his predecessor, Khalid Azizi, were also among those wounded during the attack.
The party also revealed the identities of the fallen members, which were: Karim Mahdawi (Karim Saqzi), Ibrahim Ibrahimi (Braim Zewayi), Nasrin Hadad, Rahman Piroti, Suhaila Qadri, Hashim Azizi, Osman Osmani, Karim Rasulzada (Mam Sherko), Hawre Karsaz (Hawre Shekhani), Peshawa Said Omar, Jamal Akbari, and Mansour Akbaripur.
