ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — One IRGC member and one Kurdish fighter in West Azerbaijan province were killed in clashes claimed by KDPI.

“The security guards in Piranshahr between Iraq-Iran borders were ambushed facing terrorists and anti-revolutionary groups,” Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency quoted Qasem Razayi, the commander of the border guards, as saying on Sunday.

He added that one of his guards was killed and another injured, claiming the IRGC killed a member from an unnamed armed group.

The Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) then released a statement confirming the clash in Piranshahr, located in Iranian Kurdistan or Rojhelat. KDPI revealed that one of their forces killed was named Saman Hassanpor. 

“Our forces in Piranshahr were attacked by the regime forces.  After several hours of fighting under heavy artillery fire, the enemy was defeated with casualties,” stated KDPI.

KDPI named revolutionary guard Mohammad Hashemi as the deceased and Kasra Abdulalizadeh as the wounded.

The first week of June saw several deadly clashes between IRGC and KDPI forces.

On June 13, Iran delivered a formal complaint to the Kurdistan Regional Government about the movement of "terrorists" across their shared border.

Various Kurdish opposition parties from Iran have been based in the Kurdistan Region since 1991 and Tehran has repeatedly blamed the KRG for allowing the parties to cross the border and carry out military operations.

"We have asked and warned these groups not to use the land of Kurdistan Region against our neighbors Turkey and Iran,” KRG spokesperson Safeen Dizayee said in an interview on June 13 with Iran's Tasnim news agency.

It seems that KRG has no authority and rule to stop armed groups and gangs who attack Iran. It's time for Iran to bring rest in KRG, taking over the task of KRG by bringing the war against terrorist KDPI, Komoleh, PAK, Xabat to KRG region. Together these grandpa led small dirty communist terrorist groups, whos leaders are mad that their parents lost their lands when Reza Shah ended Khan-bazi/tribalism in Iran, have no more than 1000 members.

LOL you must be a Iranian shill. If they are communist, then they cant be tribalist. As for 1,000 members & supporters your quite a few thousand short. And as your lovely leadership continues to corruptly horde the $ while declaring themselves holy. Their membership grows, as does the other ethnic democratic movements. Soon will be the time blood will flow in the gutters for the basij & shills like you. Azadi Bo Iran Ayatollah dyka bjm
