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!
