(Reuters) – Three members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards were shot dead in the western city of Piranshahr on Tuesday, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported, citing a Guards statement.

The three died “when terrorists opened fire on their car at the entrance to Piranshahr…”, the statement said.

It gave no further details. There are frequent clashes in the region between the Islamic Republic’s security forces and Iranian Kurdish militant groups based in neighbouring Iraq, as well with the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), accused by Tehran of links to Kurdish PKK insurgents in Turkey.
