On Thursday, August 16, militants attacked a border police vehicle in the village of Abulhassan, located near Baneh (Kordestan province). According to local sources, at least four border police officers were wounded in the attack. No group has claimed responsibility as of Friday, August 17. Further attacks by militant groups are possible in Kordestan province in the near-term.


The threat posed by militancy remains high in all of Iran's border areas, especially in the west and the east, due to weak border monitoring by neighboring countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Turkey.


Individuals in Kordestan province are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the Iran-Iraq border region, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
