BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:18 A.M.) – At least two Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) were killed in western Iran after the Kurdish militant group of Zagros Eagles launched an attack.

The attack on the Kurdish town of Mariwan also resulted in another member of the IRGC being transported to hospital with severe injuries.

“They [Zagros Eagles] are an independent organization. They announced the anti-IRGC attack and our sources confirmed the occurrence of clashes and some casualties in Mariwan,” Arash Saleh, representative of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) in Washington, told ARA News.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Zagros Eagles carry out more attacks during Newroz,” he added.

Newroz is the Persian new-year, celebrated by all Iranic people, in which the Kurds are.

    • Don’t know in what this group is. If they’re in the same boat PYD/YPG are, yeah, go on my komrads! Anarchism is the future of mankind anyway, all other patterns simply can’t lead to spreading humanity out of Earth which has a shelf-life that shrinks as much as population grows.
      With only 2% of Iranians attending Friday prayers in mosques, the truth is the theocracy in Iran is no more legitimate! Iranians have became one of the 2 less religious people on Earth with Estonia, thus except a very few bigots, they don’t give a fuck about Islam too, anyway, why would Persians adopt the religion of an Arab Bedouin while they have the much wiser Zarathustra in their roots!
      How can a great culture like Persia can keep on going with the religion of Bedouins? Do they drink camel piss? Same thing for Egyptians! Their religion is Râ, the Sun-God, not the Moon! Egyptian civilisation has entered a lengthy night since they replaced the Sun by the Moon.
      Kurds as many others were invaded by Arabs, no problem if they reject Arab’s religion, it’s NOT their roots!
      Actually, what is Islam? Nothing else than the Hubal cult disguised as a monotheism by copying on Jewishism, even going as far as pretending that the Jews’ prophets are its prophets. Why not going all the way? Zionists’ society works and even works great, Muslim world is very sick : generalised corruption from the top to the bottom, poverty at crazy levels : KSA did trillions of $ out of oil, 25% of population is under poverty threshold, other countries don’t seem to do better.
      Actually, to make things go better, Zionists have to be more pro-“Arab” and “Arabs” have to become pro-Zionist as what they perceive as a problem is only a problem for the rulers of the sick societies they live in but a solution for the populations.

      • Hello dear!
        Why you attacking Islam like this, the problem is not in the Islam itself but in the people who call themselves Muslims!
        Islam is not a copy of Judaism!! in the matter of fact we Muslims believe that ALL THE RELIGIONS FROM THE FIRST TO THE LAST ARE ISLAM and you can find the proof of my word in the holy Quran (ان الدین عند الله الاسلام )
        So my dear friend instead of putting the blame on Islam we should put it on the corrupted rulers in the Islamic countries on the people who justifies their sins by saying this is not the religion of our ancestors its like when prophet Ibrahim(Abraham) said to his father why you worshiping idols his father said do you want us to abandon our fathers(ANCESTORS) religion!
        so my dear friend I would ask you what the Quran ( the word of Allah) asks his followers is to THINK

      • Well. I’m one of 98% of Iranians not attending Friday Prayer in mosques but still religious. Also
        Isaiah 42:6-7
        “I, the LORD, have called you in “righteousness=Amin” ; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make “you=AMIN” to be a covenant for the people and a light for the “GENTILES=NON-ISRAELI”,
        to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.”
        GENTILES means a person who is NOT Jewish. But Jesus was from the people of Israel. As a result 😉 .
