ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) claimed Saturday that it killed eight local members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and wounded others in clashes in northwestern Iran.

Friday’s clashes happened when a team of PDKI fighters was making “a political and organizational patrol” in an area called Kota Rash in Saghez, Kurdistan province, the Kurdish rebel group said on its website.

It also said its guerrillas then left the area safely after the hour-long clash, without any casualties on its own side.

There was no immediate report of any such clash by the Iranian media.

The PDKI announced in March that it was giving up a two-decade ceasefire with the Iranian government and returning its guerrilla fighters to Iran, but vowed not to initiate hostilities unless attacked.

Since then, the PDKI has engaged in clashes against the Iranian security forces which have left dozens dead on both sides, with intense fighting in June and July. 

With some 2,000 fighters based in remote bordering areas, mainly in the Kurdistan Region, the PDKI is historically considered the most formidable Kurdish military organization opposing the Iranian regime.

If these kind of lies make fellow Kurds from other countries get hope of entering Iran with force. Make sure you are ready to die because there are way more Shi'a Kurds in Iran than these PDKI rats. And we will glady meet you in battle. And for all these zion monkeys on here promoting strife amongst various Iranians we have a message for you. The land corridor is meant for us to move 20 million soldier your way once you make the wrong move. LONG LIVE IRAN.

At this rate of lying, and with rudaw.net's assistance in publicizing these gossips, there won't be anyone defending Iran in a very short time.

Considering the number of thumb-downs to the Iran supporter comments, it becomes clear who rudaw.net is catering to. The problem is supporting the CIA terrorists will boomerang on you soon, as it has happened to all supporters of terrorism. rudaw.net and other terrorist sympatizers/apologists should know the thought of defeating Iran militarily and by using terrorism, is but a wet dreams on some Kurd's part. That's all.

Pity they couldn't have done it for real when ISIS invaded instead of running away and leaving all their equipment behind for DAESH to use.
