Tehran has officially protested to the Iraqi Kurdistan authorities following several unsuccessful attempts by terror groups based in the semi-autonomous region to break into Iranian territory.

The Iranian Consulate General in the northern Iraqi region’s capital, Erbil, handed over a protest note to the Kurdistan Region Government (KRG)’s Department of Foreign Relations to condemn the activities of terror groups in the border areas, IRNA reported on Wednesday.

The message emphasized the Iranian Armed Forces’ right to legitimate defense and confront terror groups as and when necessary.

Over the weekend, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) dismantled three terror groups trying to infiltrate into the country in separate operations, killing several of them in the Oshnavieh and Sarvabad border areas in the Kurdestan region in northwest Iran.

During the security operations, caches of explosives, weapons, and equipment were confiscated.
