The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force called on the Iraqi Kurdistan's regional government to specify the terms and contents of a ceasefire demand presented by the Iraq-based PJAK terrorist group.

"Since the contents of the unilateral ceasefire called by the PJAK terrorist grouplet is not clear, the Iraqi Kurdistan regional government which has mediated the measure is required to adopt the necessary action to clarify the goal of the declared ceasefire as soon as possible," a statement by the IRGC said on Tuesday.

"Naturally, the IRGC will announce its official view once the terms and contents of the (proposed) ceasefire are specified," the statement added.

The IRGC Ground Force also underlined the necessity for the withdrawal of all outlaws, anti-revolutionary forces and elements of the PJAK terrorist group from the bordering areas of Iran.

Earlier, a spokesman of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps had announced that the IRGC will not accept a ceasefire with the PJAK before the Iraq-based terrorist group leaves Iranian borders.

"We want them to leave our borders as a first step and staging a ceasefire is meaningless at present," Spokesman of the IRGC in Northwestern Iran Colonel Hamid Ahmadi told FNA on Monday.

Yet, he pointed to the terrorist group's demand for a ceasefire, and said Iran has not yet taken a decision in this regard.

Ahmadi also referred to the heavy toll inflicted on the PJAK terrorist group during the IRGC operations, and said since the first day of the new round of operations on Friday, nearly 30 PJAK members have been killed and more than 40 others have been injured.

The IRGC resumed military operations against the Iraq-based PJAK terrorist group after its one-month deadline to the terrorist group ended on Wednesday.

"The IRGC has started a new round of operations to completely uproot the PJAK grouplet," Ahmadi announced on Sunday.

Senior Iranian political and military officials have always underlined that the IRGC will continue operations against the terrorist group in a bid to defend Iran's territorial integrity.

In July, the IRGC arrested several teams of PJAK, who intended to infiltrate Iran to stage terrorist operations in the country.

Iran also deployed about 5,000 military forces in the Northwestern parts of the country along its joint border with the Iraqi Kurdistan region.

During the operations, the IRGC forces killed, injured and arrested tens of terrorists and destroyed their headquarters in the bordering areas of Alvatan near Sardasht city in Northwestern Iran.

PJAK, a militant Kurdish nationalist group with bases in the mountainous regions of Northern Iraq, has been carrying out numerous attacks in Western Iran, Southern Turkey and the Northeastern parts of Syria where the Kurdish populations live.

The separatist group has been fighting to establish an autonomous state, or possibly a new world country, in the area after separating Kurdish regions from Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria.

Iranian intelligence and security officials have repeatedly complained that Washington provides military support and logistical aids for such anti-Iran terrorist groups.
