Eight border guards killed in clashes with terrorists in northwest

At least eight Iranian border guards were killed in heavy clashes with terrorists in the country’s northwestern province of West Azarbaijan, a local official said.

"At Least eight Iranian guards were killed in heavy clashes with a group of terrorists in the Chaldoran border area on Friday," Alireza Radfar, the deputy governor general of the province told IRNA.

"The terrorists sustained heavy losses during the clashes on the border with Turkey," he added.

The Chaldoran border, around 860 km northwest of the capital Tehran, is near neighboring Turkey and Iraq.

Iran’s northwest has repeatedly witnessed attacks by terrorist and anti-Islamic Republic elements.
