Iranian Revolutionary Guards attacked targets in neighboring northern Iraq for the second day in a row, Tasnim news agency reports.

Airstrikes targeted bases of Kurdish separatist groups in northern Iraq, according to the report.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly shelled positions in northern Iraq in recent weeks.

The Revolutionary Guards are the elite unit of the Iranian Armed Forces.

They report directly to the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all strategic matters.

According to the regional government of the largely autonomous Kurdistan region in northern Iraq, two areas around the capital Erbil and the province of the same name were attacked.

Iran accuses Kurdish groups in northern Iraq of supporting nationwide protests against the government and the ruling Islamic system in Iran.

Since a young Iranian Kurdish girl, Mahsa Amini, died in police custody in mid-September, thousands of people have repeatedly taken to the streets across Iran.

The security apparatus cracked down on protesters, especially in Kurdish regions of Iran.
