Iran’s Revolutionary Guard says the attack targeted “terrorist” groups in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq.
At least one person was killed after rockets fired by Iran hit the headquarters of an Iranian Kurdish party in the city of Koye, near Erbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq.
The attack on Monday also injured 10 others, according to the mayor of Koye, Tariq Haidari.
Iran’s Fars News Agency said that the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had been behind the attack, which it said targeted “terrorist groups” with missiles and drones.
The IRGC has launched attacks on Iranian Kurdish militant opposition bases in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq since the death of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini on September 16.
Amini’s death, which occurred after she had been detained by Iran’s so-called morality police, has led to weeks of protests.
Iran has accused Kurdish militants in northern Iraq of fomenting the unrest which has gripped the country.
