Rocket Attack Near Iraq's Ebrill Kills One, Wounds 10 - Mayor

PARIS, France - At least one person was killed and 10 others were wounded on Monday after rockets hit the headquarters of an Iranian Kurdish party in the city of Koye, near the capital of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region Erbil, the mayor of Koye Tariq Haidari said.

Iran's semi-official Fars news said the country's Revolutionary Guards had targeted the bases of ''terrorist groups'' in the Kurdish region of Iraq with missiles and drones.

The Revolutionary Guards have launched attacks on Iranian Kurdish militant opposition bases in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq since the death of Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini on Sept.16 triggered nationwide unrest.

Iran has accused Kurdish militants in northern Iraq of fomenting the unrest.

According to Kurdish security sources drones targeted two bases for Iranian Kurdish dissidents near Erbil and Sulaimaniya, but no casualties were reported.
