KOYA, Iraq (AP) — An Iranian drone bombing campaign targeting the bases of an Iranian-Kurdish opposition group in northern Iraq has killed at least nine people and wounded 32 others. The Kurdish Regional Government’s Health Ministry said the strikes Wednesday came as demonstrations continued to engulf the Islamic Republic after the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurdish woman who was detained by the Iranian morality police. Iran’s attacks targeted Koya, some 65 kilometers (35 miles) east of Irbil, said a member of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, a leftist armed opposition force banned in Iran. Iraq’s Foreign Ministry and the Kurdistan Regional Government have condemned the strikes.
