Three members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)
were shot dead in the western city of Piranshahr on Tuesday, the semi-official
Tasnim news agency reported, citing an IRGC statement.
The three died “when terrorists opened fire on their car at the entrance to Piranshahr," the statement said.
It gave no further details. There are frequent clashes in the region between the Iran's security forces and Iranian Kurdish militant groups based in neighboring Iraq, as well with the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), accused by Tehran of links to Kurdish PKK insurgents in Turkey.
