IRGC Strikes Kurdish Militants In Northern Iraq With Drones, Artillery And Rockets (Video)

Donate

The Iranian Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced on July 12 that it had launched drone, artillery and rocket attacks on Kurdish militants’ positions in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

In an official statement, the IRGC said that the operation, which began two days ago, was a response to the recent terrorist attack in the country’s northwestern province of West Azerbaijan. Three IRGC servicemen were reportedly killed in the attack.

“As asserted several times, the national security and preserving the Iranian nation’s calm and peace of mind, particularly for the dear and gallant people of the border provinces, is the red line of the country’s Armed Forces, particularly the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Ground Force,” the statement’s reads.

The IRGC noted that its intelligence and special forces acquired detailed information about the militants’ positions in the Kurdistan Region before the beginning of the operation.

A video of the operation shows an Iranian Muhajer-6 unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) carrying out airstrikes on military positions with Qaem electro-optical guided bombs. Heavy artillery and Grad rocket launchers were also used in the operation.

This was not the first time when the IRGC targeted positions in the Kurdistan Region. Last September, the IRGC launched several ballistic missiles at a headquarters of a Kurdish militia, killing and injuring many commanders.

The IRGC has warned the Kurdistan Region Government (KRG) that its forces will respond to any attack from the region. However, the local administration has not taken any serious steps to secure the border with Iran.

    this is a major provocation and attack against our allies. the Iraqi Kurds have ALWAYS been an ally of the USA and Israel. If USA is not going to protect them from shia terrorists. Then Israel should fly some F-35’s and F-15s through Jordan and smack the IRGC hard in Iraq :-]

        I just remembered: there are no ‘Kurds’. The number of different tribes and clans and the differences in history and even language is like a great rift.

        LMAO!!!!

    • AJ

      If the Kurds are involved with terrorist attack in Irans northwestern province of West Azerbaijan then they deserve to be struck. What has this got to do with Israel anyway they are hundreds of miles away.

      • Criticalthinker101

        AJ, timely point! IDF have been embedded since 2003. So those trainers were not hundreds of miles away.

    • Criticalthinker101

      I think the point here is that Israel’s troops on the ground got smashed babysitting their proxies. Who knows?!!

    • Criticalthinker101

      I’m guessing those embedded IDF units got a bit of tit for tat. That’s the thing about Iran they always return in kind. For example, Israel stopped killing Iranian scientists because Iran directly replied.

      Sayyed Nasrallah says all of Israel is within range of Hezbollah’s missiles

      The secretary general of the legendary Lebanese Hezbollah resistance
      movement says all of Israel is within the range of the missiles of the
      group, adding that the resistance movement is stronger than ever despite
      Western sanctions.

      Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks during a televised interview with Hezbollah’s al-Manar television on Friday on the occasion of the 13th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

      “Once we said that we could strike targets south of Haifa. Today, we can say that if Israel has sites south of Eilat, then we can also hit them. All of Israel is under the range of our missiles,” he said in a matter of fact hour long interview with Lebanese popular TV station Al-Manar.

      The Hezbollah leader, while presenting the group’s developed capabilities, warned that in case of any confrontation, the Zionist entity would be brought to the “verge of vanishing, and it knows this.”

      “We have a larger number of missiles and we have precise missiles that we did not have in 2006. We also have a large and powerful branch of UAVs,” Hezbollah’s chief further said.

      Then, he held up a map of Zionist-occupied Palestine to the camera, pointing to potential targets for Hezbollah’s attacks.

      “There is an area 70 kilometers long and 20 kilometers wide … we can destroy it all,” Nasrallah confidently said.

      If kurds kere their ally now iran and iraq would be in their knees you fool. Actually iran helped zionism grow

  • Turkophobia – For-Kurdistan!

    Iran terrrorists will be eliminted

    • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

      Good luck with that. Even better idea, stop attacking your own kin. You’re both Persian peoples. Instead of attacking Iranians and conspiring against them, you should be allied with them. Dumbass kurds being dumbasses as usual :)

      • Turkophobia – For-Kurdistan!

        I am not against my persian civilian brothers, they actually love us, we are only against their regime. Did you know how many Kurds were executed last year? iran were on the first rank which executed the most per year

        • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

          The regime I agree needs lots of reformation to become more moderate. and its very wrong and sad that some Kurds were executed. I don’t agree with any of that. But Iran is the only powerful resistance to the USA imperialist expansion plan’s and to the aggressive artificial zionist state of israel

          • Iranian Falcon

            Iran is the only fact that zionism and israel gree and arabs israel alliance despite their hatred toward each other. So i i guess islamic regime is run by jews haha

        • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

          also remember how the PKK helped the Syrian Army and Lebanese Resistance fight against the zionists in Lebanon 1982. Israeli intel helped Turkish ottoman skunks capture Ocalan and israel has never been a true ally of kurds.

        • klove and light

          scumbag……..do u still fuck your sister and mama?????

        • Garga

          Actually we love and support every single Iranian who loves the country back, not the ones who conspire with foreign powers and take arms against us to weaken and break our country up.and certainly not the ones who kill our people.

          Tell these lies to Sunni Kurds which PJAK kills and we’ll see how much “love” you’ll get in return.

          FYI, these are Iranian Kurds, not the ones who kill Iranians for 30 pieces of silver from their foreign masters and run and hide behind Barzani skirt.

          http://kurdish-elites-congress.ir/?lang=en

          It’s funny how western MSM got angry because a patriotic Iranian Kurd like Mohammad Ali Soltani said “We Kurds have always been border guards of Iran, we have always been guardians of this land”.

          Regarding the executions, if they don’t like it they can try and stop killing Iranians. It’s as simple as that.

          • Pavel Pavlovich

            All True Iranian patriots no matter what ethnicity will rush to defend their greater fatherland. It is something that only true states with a history have.

          • Iranian Falcon

            Tell those populist lies and bullshits to the “Kulbar”s assasinated by the regime. Even killing their mules !!!

          • Garga

            OK, I’m going to need some evidence for this one. Video, picture, something. Anything.

            Please don’t reply if you can’t back this drivel with proof.

        • Iranian Falcon

          Nicely said. MAJOR iranian & persians and other ethnics are being fucked by islamic regime and no one likes them but cant do anything since strict heavy and terrible oppression. These guys in here are so fool think islamic regime means its ieople too but they eill be surprised if go in iran and ask the people!

      • Criticalthinker101

        Says the person whose people are exterminating the semites. Your projection is hilarious to observe.

    • bla

      you kurds are treacherous scum. Should have dialogued with all parties, but you partnered with USA , guess you had no choice , now suffer the consequences, specially in Syria where you were given shelter form TURKEY, and you repaid to Assad by taking half oil wells and territory

      • Iranian Falcon

        Hmmm know terrorism when iranian kurdish democratic party leader abdulrahman ghasemlou was on meeting with iranian embassadors to talk about peace, he was terrored inside vienna!! So terrorism first started with islamic regime not to mention other persian persian political activists outside iran were terrored by islamic regime agents even embbasadors!

    • klove and light

    • Pavel Pavlovich

      Pretending to be all peaceful and pro-Iran, are we? Your scum brothers will be exterminated, while Isisrael and their patrons in WASHINGTON are weakening. There will be little mercy, but it is not yet too late to lay down arms.

  • Garga

    What you won’t hear from the MSM is the border patrols these terror groups target are most of the time Sunnis AND Kurds. Like the last year’s PJAK sneak attack on a border post near Marivan, killing 11 patrols and wounding 8 more.

    All were local people and of the 11 martyred, 8 were Sunni Kurds from Sanandaj and Mrivan and 3 Shi’a from Qorveh. As a result of this attack, PJAK’s terror hideout in KRG decimated and their commanders were sent to hell.

    For MSM, Iranian Sunni Kurds are limited to the terrorists captured. They spin the reality on it’s head by saying they are “activists” and Iran is punishing them for being Sunnis and Kurds. BBC even cropped one of their pictures to remove the AK-47 and grenades in the pic and saying he’s a simple civil rights activist punished for trying to preserve Kurdish language.

    Well done Sepah, thank you Artesh, thank you all for all you do to secure the country.

    PS. BBC published this pic:

    The title says “Ramin Hossein Panahi’s brother: My brother was not armed and was not in clashes”.

    To know the truth, search for his name in Persian. English search only gets you “sterilized” results.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The level of military professionalism and deployment of the 155mm mountain howitzers is very good. The Kurd terrorists think that Iran like Turkey will just sit back and do nothing if Iranians are killed, they are sadly mistaken and even Arbil will be flattened despite having over a thousand Jew and CIA scum “advisers” there to train the MEK terrorists. This is part of the Bolton moron’s plan to “pressure” Iran. I have been posting for years as Iraqi Kurd areas are being turned into terrorist bases with Saudi cowards providing the funding.

    • Pavel Pavlovich

      I have read that last time they fired ballistic missiles, do you have any knowledge thereof?

      • Garga

        The last time being September 2018, they used 7 “Fateh-110” missiles. Their target was further then, about 200 km inside Iraq.

        • Pavel Pavlovich

          They used Fateh-110 to test its accuracy, I guess.

          I hope it turned out to be acceptable.
          After all, there is electronic guidance system.

    • Iranian Falcon

      Dont spread lies those killed were IRGC. Kurdish parties wont kill their people your false propaganda only works on yours if you dare go and ask people, of course not in persian because they think you will report them lol

      • Garga

        They were Basij members, I guess if you squint hard and look from a certain angle, you could say they are IRGC. But even worse for you or the terrorists who attacked them, Sunni and Kurd Basiji or IRGC.

        Kurdish separatist kill everybody, including the very people they claim to fight for.

        Oh, and my reply is not an answer to you, there’s no point arguing and reasoning with a MeK. Just to answer any question the other readers might face.

        • Iranian Falcon

          Well as i said your from government so there is no surprise you talk to defendthem you even defend their killing of innocent kulbars, but the thing you said i said i was like you thinking like what government mindwashes us, but when i went there and talked to people i was friend with they just laughed and told me not even single civilian was killed in these all years and only Basiji and IRGC and traitors (kurds kurds bought by government) were killed.
          Also i add they are not seperatist they just want their rights you might hate kurds have their own right of language and administration and education but they dont. As they told me a beautiful word: “you can kill kurds but you cant kill Kurdistan”. No matter how much you hate kurds and kurdish movements (even if you lie to yourself you dont), you will not prevail, your masters 40 years of history tells how much corrupted and devil you are much worse than zionism.

          • Garga

            Now I wish I was from the government or was a Sepahi.
            Still waiting for your proof regarding “assassination of Kulbars and even their mules”.

            I fully agree. You can kill kurds but you can’t kill Kurdistan. Say it to the ones who kill Iranian Kurds while claim they “defend their rights” by being tools for the highest bidder.

        • Pavel Pavlovich

          Only death to purify their rotten soul. No worded answers. But rather a bullet to the head.

  • LR captain

    well the issue of the Kurds are between a rock and hard place in the minds of the US dunces. Either give the Kurds anti-air systems to shoot down the missiles and loose turkey as partner state. (this is kind important as the US really see s-400 deal as Russian infiltration of NATO, and turkey straight up accusing the US attacking NATO allies will only result in some NATO members being exiled manly turkey and few others)

    Or let and Israeli-Syrian type situation develop in the Kurdish territory. Where iran pummels the kurds every time the kurds launch an attack into Iranian territory.

    things are kind of backwards when you think about it.
    MSM will say that Iran is attacking defenseless civilians (gaza strip)
    Irans is attacking a people who just things to get back to normal and live their lives in peace (air strikes on Syrians)

    • Mahmoud Larfi

      Or let and Israeli-Syrian type situation develop in the Kurdish territory. Where iran pummels the kurds every time the kurds launch an attack into Iranian territory.

      Except that Syria hasn’t launched any attack into Israeli territory since 1973.

      • LR captain

        that is what the meant by “type” is not the exact situation.
        the point i made that that both governments can’t stop their opponent from bombing them. (well the i guess the kurds could if they stopped being a Israeli proxy.)

        Lol israel claims to striking Iranian proxy targets in syria. while Iran strikes legitimate israeli proxies in Iraq.

        • Pavel Pavlovich

          Cpt. Pikachu is correct. (T)urds are paying the penance for being whores unto ye olde Zionist entity.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    great amazing work keep pounding them :)))

    • Zionism = EVIL

      From a purely military point of view, the strikes are precise and very well executed. Iran has also learnt a lot from its experiences and the deployment of mobile mountain (truck mounted 6×6 or dismounted) 155mm artillery shows a very high degree of proficiency. This is a very inexpensive and effective use of military power and the treacherous Kurd turds who are tools of Zionist vermin and Americunt arseholes better pay heed or Arbil will be hit next. The 155mm with base bleed ammo and laser targeting can hit targets to almost pinpoint accuracy up to 30 kms. BTW, the Jew scum should know that Hezbollah also has hundreds of these very mobile and accurate mountain howitzers that turn Zionist hovels as far as Ashdod into parking lots.

  • d’Artagnan

    Terrorists trained by US and Israel are provoking Iran and will get a very firm response.This is just the initial installment.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    It appears that Iranian attack was bigger than previously reported. Latest video from IRIB confirms a combined arms operation with drones, missiles, artillery and rockets. There are drones providing real time targeting coordinates in this video and live battle damage assessments. The terrorists have been hit hard and not a good omen for Zionist parasites or Saudi scum.
