15 killed as Iran bombed Kurdish opposition's bases in Iraq

 BAGHDAD:At least 15 people were killed and more than 30 wounded on Wednesday after Iranian forces carried out cross-border bombardments on Iranian Kurdish opposition parties' positions in the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan in northern Iraq.

A statement by the regional Kurdish Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) said the Iranian attack targeted the headquarters of their Kurdish opposition parties in some refugee camps in the towns of Koya, Soran, and Barde in Erbil province.

The Iranian rockets and bobby-trapped drones killed and wounded many people, the CTS statement said, without giving further details.

Meanwhile, a statement by the Iraqi Foreign Ministry strongly condemned "the Iranian side's artillery and rocket bombardment, which coincided with the use of 20 drones loaded with explosives, that targeted four areas in Iraq's Kurdistan region and resulted in many deaths and injuries."

Such "dangerous development threatens the security and sovereignty of Iraq," the statement said, adding these unilateral and provocative actions will only increase tension."

Iranian and Turkish forces frequently attack the military bases of their Kurdish opposition parties in Kurdistan in northern and northeastern Iraq, accusing them of carrying out attacks against their home countries from the Iraqi Kurdish region. 

Meanwhile, police on Monday arrested more than 250 people from Kurdish-populated areas to stop the demonstrations. Security forces are conducting operations against the protesters. Their houses are being raided. Iran's Revolutionary Guards are also involved in this operation. A Kurdish activist said security forces were targeting people who work for the Kurds. Despite this, until Mahsa gets justice, the protest will continue.

The protesters are also raising slogans against the country's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei forcing the police to opend fire on them. Elections are held in this country and there is also a democratic system, but despite this, all important decisions are taken by Khamenei. A surprising thing for the government here is that along with women, men are also taking part in these demonstrations. There have been reports of security forces clashing with people in Kurdish populated areas. In the town of the deceased Mahsa, the police opened fire on the protesters. After funeral, protesters had gathered outside the Governor's House. Where the security personnel started firing at him.
