THERAN: A week after massive anti-government protests erupted over the death of a young woman in police custody, Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on Saturday attacked a Kurdish terrorist group's hideout in the north of neighboring Iraq.

IRNA reported that the Guard's ground forces attacked a "terrorist group" located across the border in Iraq with artillery fire from a position inside Iran's West Azerbaijan province. The report did not go into detail.

IRNA also claimed, without providing any further information, that intelligence forces had detained some members of a separatist group called "Komleh" in Iran.

The operation will continue to ensure border security, which is believed to be close to Iran's military, according to the guard's statement, according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency.

Tasnim said the attack, which took place at 16:00 local time and targeted positions of Kurdish separatist organizations in northern Iraq, severely damaged them.
