Skip to comments.Report: Iranian Regime Strikes At Kurdish Groups In Koya, Iraq
Posted on 09/08/2018 12:22:36 PM PDT by Pavegecko
On September 8 Kurdish groups in and around the city of Koya in northern Iraq were struck by a bombardment. Locals said that missiles and drones were used in an attack. Video showed rockets streaming across the sky from the direction of Iran towards Koya. Iran is known to possess both the missile capabilities and artillery to strike the area. However it would be the first time the Iranian regime has used missiles at this distance to strike deep inside Iraq.
In the past months Kurdish groups, including the PDKI, KDP-I, PJAK and PAK have increased their activity in Iran and there have been numerous clashes since June. MECRA has been closely following this uptick in clashes and we mapped the clashes on August 12. For instance a large clash between the PDKI and Iranian regime in mid-August resulted in more than a dozen casualties on both sides. These Kurdish groups have put out recent statements regarding their cause and their desire to increase opposition to Tehran. This comes after PDKI leader Mustafa Hijri and Komala head Abdullah Mohtadi visited Washington in June seeking support. Hijri discussed his partys current policies, noting The Islamic Republic of Iran is not only against the Kurds. It is also against stability. It is against peace in the Middle East and they always try to destabilize the region, especially the Muslim world as a kind of instrument for their foreign relations.

Iran verses the Kurds part xcvii.
Making the world safe for socialist Muslims, one rocket at a time.
Could all Kurds in 4 countries come together as one?
That idea makes sense but would require cooperation from multiple countries in the area.
So I’ll chalk that idea up to “Not likely”.
