Kurds in Iran
By Micah Halpern
I have been writing about and explaining growing internal tensions in Iran.
The Kurdish underground is very tight and well organized. And they are attacking Iranian targets.
Iranian state-linked media has reported that up to 19 people, including a commander in the paramilitary Revolutionary Guard, were killed in an attack by armed separatists on a police base in the eastern city of Zahedan.
The reports did not explain if the attack was conducted by the Kurdish underground or if they were part of the anti-government protests sparked after the death of a woman who was not properly wearing her hijab, her head covering.
This deadly attack took place early in the day as crowds gathered at a nearby mosque for Friday prayers.
Iran claims to have arrested nine foreigners linked to the anti-government protests, which authorities have blamed on hostile foreign entities, without providing evidence.
The state-run IRNA news agency cited witnesses as saying that 19 people were killed and 15 were wounded, but there was no official confirmation.
