Iran says it will continue to bomb Iraqi Kurdistan until threat from Kurdish groups is 'eliminated'

The US "strongly" condemns the attacks and says they are "violations of the territorial integrity of Iraq"

MADRID, 23 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has assured this Wednesday that it will continue its bombardments and drone attacks against Kurdish groups in the semi-autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan until they "eliminate" the threat they pose, amid criticism of Iraq for violations of its sovereignty in these operations.

The commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Ground Force, Mohamad Pakpur, has indicated that the bombings will continue as long as these groups "do not disarm" and has stressed that the attacks are directed against "armed thugs and mercenary terrorists of global arrogance - -referring to the United States--", as reported by the Iranian news agency Tasnim.

Thus, he has highlighted that among the targets attacked are positions of the Party for a Free Life for Kurdistan (PJAK) and has accused this group of "supporting" the demonstrations that have been taking place in the country since September due to the death in custody of Mahsa Amini, arrested in Tehran for allegedly wearing the headscarf incorrectly.

Pakpur has explained that objectives of Komala and the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) were also attacked after the "illegal entry" of their troops into the country. "These terrorists, backed by global arrogance and based in the northern region of Iraq, had to flee the country after suffering heavy casualties," he concluded.

The Revolutionary Guard stressed on Sunday that "in the face of the movements of the villains and the anti-Iranian separatist terrorist groups" in the framework of the protests, the body had "strengthened its forces within the framework of the mission's geography" to "deal with resolutely to factors of insecurity".

For his part, the spokesman for the US State Department, Ned Price, has "firmly" condemned the Iranian attacks and stressed that they involve "violations of the territorial integrity of Iraq." Thus, he has called on the Iranian authorities "to avoid new threats and violence."

The Iraqi government "firmly" condemned on Tuesday the latest bombardments by Turkey and Iraq against the semi-autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan (north) and argued that "they are a violation of Iraqi sovereignty and an act that contravenes international conventions and laws that regulate relations between countries. Likewise, he said that "they also violate the principle of good neighborliness, which should be a reason to seek participatory security at the service of all parties."

"The Government of Iraq underlines that the territories of Iraq are not a base or corridor to cause harm to any of the neighboring countries and rejects that Iraq is a terrain for conflict and settling scores between external parties," the Foreign Ministry concluded.
