The Islamic Republic of Iran has called on the UN Security Council to try to close the headquarters of the Iraqi-based Kurdish groups and disarm them.
The Islamic Republic’s mission to the UN in letters to members of the Security Council claimed that its attacks on Kurdish groups in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region “aim to defend the country’s national security.”
The clerical regime has renewed its attacks on Kurdish targets in the Iraqi Kurdistan region since protests in Iran broke out in September, launching sustained missile and drone attacks in the past five days, on the pretext that separatist Kurdish groups are fanning the flames of conflict in Iranian Kurdish cities by supporting the protesters.
In its letters to UNSC member, Tehran alleged it “has recently launched necessary and proportionate military operations against terrorist groups’ bases in the Iraqi Kurdistan region, which was meticulously planned and precisely targeted on terrorist locations.”
It also noted that the Islamic Republic has shared “irrefutable evidence and credible information” with the central government in Iraq about the use of their territory by “terrorist and separatist groups to plan, support, organize and carry out terrorist and subversive acts” against Iran.
This letter was sent in a situation when the United Nations Human Rights Council is scheduled to hold an emergency meeting about the ongoing protests in Iran on Thursday.
