PJAK terrorists killed in northwest Iran
Three members of the terrorist group, Party for Free Life in Kurdistan (PJAK), have been killed in clashes with Iranian security forces in northwestern parts of Iran.
“Three members of the PJAK anti-Revolution separatist group died last night in skirmishes in the city of Orumiyeh,” an Iranian military source told IRNA on condition of anonymity.
“Our forces confiscated weapons and ammunition during the clashes which took place in Orumiyeh’s Anzal district,” he added.
The source also said that none of the government forces had sustained any injuries during the incident.
Members of the PJAK group — an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) — regularly engage in armed clashes with Iranian security forces along the country’s western borders with Iraq.
Recognized as a terrorist group by Turkey, Iran, Iraq, the United States, the European Union, and the United Nations, the PKK is responsible for many deadly operations in northern Iraq and southern Turkey.
