Topic: Iranian clashes 'kill 17 rebels'


The Iranian military has killed 17 rebels in the north-west of the country, state media have reported.

A unit of Revolutionary Guards attacked the rebels in a remote area near the Turkish border, IRNA news agency said.

A military helicopter involved in the operation crashed in bad weather killing a Guards commander on board, Fars news agency reported.
There have been previous clashes in the area between Iranian security forces and militants linked to Kurdish groups.

"The Revolutionary Guards besieged these elements and started neutralising them," IRNA quoted a Guards commander as saying. "In this operation at least 17 mercenary anti-revolution elements were killed and some were injured."
