Five members of Iranian Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) have been killed in a clash with insurgents, Fars News Agency reported.

According to the report, two IRGC members were also injured in the fight with insurgents in the city of Baneh on October 10.

The report didn't mention the name of insurgent group, but Iran has been combating Kurdish Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK) in the north-western region of the country for years.
The goal of the group is the secession of Kurdistan from Iran.

In February 2009, the U.S. Treasury Department included PJAK into the list of terrorist groups. In addition, financial sanctions were imposed against it.
