SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) said on Saturday it had detained two “Iranian spies” in its headquarters in the Kurdistan Region.

“Each Kaiwan Fayzi and araz Salawati who worked in the party was appeared to be spying for Iran,” the PDKI said in a statement.

The PDKI further said they had facilitated the Iranian bombardment on the party’s headquarters in Koya, west of Erbil.

“They were handed over to Erbil court after investigation” said the PDKI, an armed opposition group fighting for greater autonomy for Iran’s Kurdish community.

In September 2018, Iran attacked the KDPI headquarters in Koya, killing 11 people.

Iran has in the past shelled armed Kurdish opposition groups based in Iraq.

In December, the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDP-I) said it handed over two Iranian “spies and criminals” to the Kurdish judicial council over involvement in a rocket attack on its bases in the Kurdistan Region, where 16 members of the party were killed.
