Iran’s Revolutionary Guards attacked the headquarters of the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, located northeast of Erbil, the capital of Kurdistan, Iraq. They have also attacked Islamic State installations in Syria. The news agency Reuters reported that these attacks took place on Tuesday.

Iran carried out the attack at a time of heightened tension across the Middle East due to the ongoing war between Israel and the Palestinian independence group Hamas.

In a statement, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said a Mossad headquarters was hit with a missile in response to recent atrocities by the Jewish regime and Israeli strikes that killed commanders and members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

Reuters reported that there was no immediate comment from Israel in this regard.

Meanwhile, Islamic State has claimed responsibility for two blasts in Iran this month. The explosion killed around 100 people and injured many others at a memorial to Iran’s top commander Qassem Soleimani.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards statement added, “We will continue to attack until the last drop of blood of our martyrs is avenged.”

A commander and three members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards were killed in a recent attack in Syria. Iran has vowed to avenge the deaths. The country says it suspects Israel carried out the attack and killed them.

Regarding the attack on the Mossad headquarters in Iraq, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said that espionage and terrorist activities were carried out from these facilities in Iran and various parts of the Middle East. The IRGC says it has attacked several other locations in Erbil.

At least four civilians were killed in these attacks, Reuters reported, citing the Kurdistan Region Security Council. Six people were injured. Among the dead are Dhankubar Peshrao Dijayi and his family members. A missile also hit the home of a senior Kurdistan intelligence official.
