Erbil-A Kurdistan Freedom Falcons leader, who preferred to remain anonymous, told Asharq Al-Awsat that during the past three days “our fighters succeeded in defying an attack by the Nabi al-Akram Corps, one of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its Intelligence Organization formations”.

The source added, “The Iranian regime forces carried out attacks throughout the past three days but failed to advance towards our points because our fighters showed stiff resistance and killed more than three IRGC soldiers”.

“Despite fierce clashes, there were no human losses in our army”, added the Kurdish leader, mentioning that IRCG used mortar shells, heavy artilleries and helicopters to bombard points at the Dalahoo Mountains. Thus wide space of forests were on fire.

Kurdistan Freedom Falcons leader denied what has been announced by the Iranian regime about arresting a number of the party fighters and leaders, commenting as follows, “After the huge losses of IRGC, the Iranian regime refuged as usual to making up occurrences and lies in order to boost morale of its collapsing forces and bodies and to arrest innocent civilians through spreading rumors about arresting three leaders from Kurdistan Freedom Party and Kurdistan Freedom Falcons”.

He denied these rumors and affirmed that the regime did not arrest anys member or fighter.
