Iranian Revolutionary Guards killed two militants of an  “anti-revolutionary” group in a security operation in the northwest of the country, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Tuesday.

The agency did not name the group, but the clashes are common in this region with the Iranian-based Kurdish armed groups based in Iraq, as well as with the Free Life Party of Kurdistan, which has links with the outlawed Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) in Turkey.

This area lies on the border with Iraq and Turkey together.

“The clashes took place on Tuesday in the region of Chaldran in the territory of Azerbaijan to the west … the militants were trying to infiltrate into Iran … Two of the Revolutionary guards were also dead,” the Revolutionary Guards said in a statement broadcast by the agency.

The statement added that unknown number of militants were wounded while the guards seized some weapons, explosives and communications systems.
