At least two Iranian Kurdish Peshmerga killed in clashes with gov't forces

ERBIL, Kurdistan region - At least two Peshmerga soldiers of the Kurdistan Democratic Party-Iran (KDP-I) were killed in renewed clashes with Iranian Revolutionary Guards in villages of the predominantly Kurdish city of Sardasht. 

“Last night a group of our Peshmerga soldiers were ambushed by the Iranian forces near the Bolfat area, killing two Peshmerga named Azad Ali and Amir Nadir,” the KDP-I council said in a statement.

“We have not gathered information on the Iranian forces,” it added.

Iran has recently increased its military activity in the border areas of its eastern borders, especially in Shno, Sardasht and Piranshar.

Tehran frequently puts pressure on political parties in the Kurdistan Region of northern Iraq, asking them to influence the Iranian Kurdish forces to bring an end to their attacks inside Iran. 

With some 2,000 Peshmerga forces based in remote bordering areas, the KDP-I is historically considered the most formidable military organization opposing the Islamic Republic in Tehran.

Iran revolutionary guards deserve to be attacked by boys lions of Kurdish fighters because Iranian forces who are Shitta, shitta is the most tortured for Sunni Muslim among enemy of Sunnis now and the future, and they have been destabilized area. for instance, they intervened Yaman, and Yaman has been destroyed by them. they interfered Syria, it has been grounded by them . and etc.

How about reporting the truth, 12 PKK ambushed and killed , zero casualties on Irans side. They were ambushed because as always locals are in full support of the iranian government and pass on information, same thing happened only a few weeks ago when 10 PKK got wiped in yet another ambush. Kurds are nothing but insects of the Wahhabi death cult, and you will be crushed continuesly by iran. You can bet your lives on this.

The regime is controlling the hospital with armed man, my sisters husband were around the area of fight and he saw the regime retreating but they had planted hundreds of land mines. and started shelling the area. many civillians are injured. The 2 peshmerga that were martyred were from the same area, they had their family there. they are our people. Let the regime know that once PDKI starts full scale war over 16 million kurds will pick up their rifles and continue ghassemlou's path. We as the youths of Sardasht, are waiting for order from our leaders to clean the city from dirt (IRGC). Resistance Code: City is Ready, waiting for mountains Call
