Iran says missile attack on Kurdish dissidents a warning to hostile powers

ANKARA - The chief of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards Corps said on Thursday that Tehran's missile attack on an Iranian Kurdish rebel base in northern Iraq last week was a warning to hostile powers, Iranian state television reported.


The Guards fired seven missiles at the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI), an armed opposition group that fights for greater autonomy for Iran’s Kurdish community.


Iranian media said at least 11 people were killed.


"The attack against the terrorists in Iraq's Kurdistan conveys a message to the enemies, particularly those superpowers who think they
can impose their evil plots on Iran and bully us," state TV quoted Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari as saying.


Iran has repeatedly threatened to destroy US military bases across the Middle East and target Israel within minutes if attacked by the United States and its regional allies.
