One person was killed and at least 8 others were wounded on Monday when Iranian rockets and drones hit the headquarters of Iranian Kurdish parties in the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq.
An Iranian military source confirmed that "Iran has carried out attacks with drones and missiles targeting the headquarters of terrorist parties in the northern region of Iraq," said Iran's Fars News Agency, managed by the Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Iran has been hit by almost two months of protests since the death of Kurdish Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, 22, after she was arrested by the country's morality police for allegedly breaching the strict dress code for women.
Tehran previously launched attacks that killed more than a dozen people in Iraq's Kurdistan region in late September, after accusing Kurdish armed groups based there of stoking the wave of unrest.
Monday's attacks struck targets near Erbil and Sulaimaniya. A hospital official in the Iraqi Kurdish city of Koye told Reuters that two people were killed and at least 10 wounded in the attacks.
Tariq al-Haidari, mayor of Koysanjaq, told AFP that "five Iranian missiles targeted a building used by the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran".
"One person is dead and eight wounded," said the health ministry in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Other strikes hit elsewhere in Iraqi Kurdistan.
"Four drone strikes" targeted bases of the Iranian Communist Party and the Iranian Kurdish nationalist group Komala in the Zrgoiz region, said Atta Seqzi, one of the leaders of Komala.
The UN mission in Iraq condemned the renewed Iranian missile and drone attacks, which it said “violate Iraqi sovereignty.”
“Iraq should not be used as an arena to settle scores and its territorial integrity must be respected. Dialogue between Iraq and Iran over mutual security concerns is the only way forward,” said UNAMI.
The US Consulate in Erbil also condemned the attack on Iraqi Kurdistan.
It called on Iran “to stop attacking its neighbor and the people of Iraq,” and condemned the violation of Iraqi sovereignty.
