For the seventh consecutive day, Iranian military bombs Sidekan


Shafaq News/ Iranian artillery reportedly bombed villages in Soran's sub-district of Sidekan, north of Kurdistan's capital city Erbil, on Saturday morning.

A source told Shafaq News Agency that projectiles fired from the Iranian side of the borders landed in the villages of Saqar, Barzein, Parez, and Katine.

Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan has been under Iranian fire for the seventh day in a row. A series of missile and drone attacks claimed by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) killed 13 and wounded 58 persons near Erbil and al-Sulaymaniyah last Wednesday.

The strikes were reported after Iranian authorities accused armed Iranian Kurdish dissidents of involvement in unrest now shaking Iran, especially in the northwest where most of the country's population of over 10 million Kurds live.
