Iran has claimed responsibility for missile strikes that exploded near the US consulate in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdish region Monday.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said they targeted “spy headquarters and the gathering of anti-Iranian terrorist groups” near Erbil, the capital and most populated city in Kurdistan.
Four civilians were killed and six more were wounded in the attack, the security council of the Kurdish regional government said.
No US facilities were struck or damaged, a US official told the Associated Press.
Iran said it struck the headquarters of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency in a statement claiming responsibility for the strikes.
In a separate, but concurrent attack, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said they also struck “terrorist operations” including Islamic State targets in Syria.
