IRGC Reports Deadly Clashes Near Iraqi Border

Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says one of its soldiers was killed in clashes on July 26 with a number of "anti-revolutionaries" near the western border with Iraq.

A IRGC border patrol "encountered and fought with an anti-revolutionary group in Sarvabad," in Kurdistan Province, Iranian semi-official news agencies reported, quoting an IRGC statement.

The reports said an unspecified number of the "anti-revolutionaries were killed and wounded, and a considerable amount of their weapons and ammunition was destroyed."

One of the IRGC members was "wounded and died en route to the hospital," the reports said.

The IRGC also said that several members of the "anti-revolutionary team" had fled the region.

The area has been the scene of clashes between Iranian forces and Kurdish resistance in the past.
