Kurdish officials: Iran launches new drone bombings in Iraq

2 people were killed and 15 people were injured.

Iran launched a new drone bombing campaign Wednesday targeting the bases of an Iranian-Kurdish opposition group in northern Iraq amid demonstrations engulfing the Islamic Republic, Kurdish officials said.

The strikes early Wednesday focused on Koya, some 60 kilometers (35 miles) east of Irbil, said Soran Nuri, a member of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan. The group, known by the acronym KDPI, is a leftist armed opposition force banned in Iran.

Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency and broadcaster said the country’s Revolutionary Guard ground forces targeted some bases of a separatist group in the north of Iraq with its “precision missiles” and “suicide drones.” Two people were killed and seven were wounded, according to Kurdish Brig. Gen. Goran Ahmed, chief of civil defense in Koya. The Kurdish television network Rudaw said 15 people were injured.

The Iranian drone strikes targeted a military camp, homes, offices and other areas around Koya, Nuri said. Nuri described the attack as ongoing.
