Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says it has killed five gunmen who crossed
into a mostly Kurdish region from neighboring Iraq.
The IRGC says in a statement published on its website that one of its members was killed in the shootout Wednesday in the western Kermanshah province. It says Iranian forces seized weapons, explosives and communications equipment.
On Tuesday, Kurdish militants killed three IRGC members in northern Iran. Iranian forces occasionally clash with Kurdish militants and ISIS extremists in areas near the border.
