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.
