Iran's Revolutionary Guards said on Saturday,  they had killed ten militants overnight in a security operation, conducted in a Kurdish region near the border with Iraq, the official news agency IRNA reported.

Revolutionary Guards said in a statement carried by IRNA, there has been sporadic fighting with Iranian Kurdish militant groups based in Iraq as well as Islamic State fighters near Iran's porous border with Iraq.


Last month at least 10 Iranian border guards were killed in an attack by unidentified gunmen near Iraqi border.

In 2017, Islamic State militants carried out coordinated attacks at the parliament building in Tehran and the mausoleum of Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini , killing 18 people.
