According to a report by the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, 2 Kurdish Peshmerga were killed during renewed clashes with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the Kurdish city of Sardasht. Mohammed Alizadeh, a Kurdish rebel who is part of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, noted that the Peshmerga defeated an ambush by the Iranian regime in Sardasht: “After the detonation of an explosive trap which consisted of some mines and mortar shells, the regime bombed the venue by artillery. The Peshmerga thwarted their bombing and the Peshmerga were distanced from the area.”

However, due to the detonation of the explosive trap, Azad Ali and Amir Qadrian, two Iranian Kurdish Peshmerga, were killed. Nevertheless, Alizadeh stressed that the Peshmerga managed to repel the Iranian regime’s shelling while they were retreating: “The Iranian regime’s casualties have not yet been confirmed. The political and legal commission of the Kurdistan Democratic Party asserts that they will continue on the path of the two sincere and valiant Peshmergas Azad Ali and Amir Qadrian.”

The Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan stresses that Iran has increased their activities along the Iran-Iraq border and has put pressure on Iraqi Kurdish groups in order to pressure Iranian Kurds to end their struggle against the Ayatollah’s regime.
