By Rudaw 8/9/2018
Iran fired long-range missiles at the headquarters of Kurdish Iranian parties in the Kurdistan Region in the Koya area on Saturday morning. 

The headquarters of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) was hit. The Kurdistan Democratic Party-Iran (KDP-I) confirmed its camp was also attacked by “Iranian missiles and aerial attacks” during a party meeting. 


The death toll has risen to 16, according to Rudaw's reporter in Koya, and a further 38 have been wounded. 

PDKI secretary general Mustafa Mawludi and his predecessor Khalid Azizi have been injured in the attack.

The PDKI was holding a leadership meeting when the attack occurred. 

The party said Iran used long-range missiles, injuring 50 refugees living in camps connected to the PDKI base.
