Further attacks by militant groups are possible in Kordestan province in the near-term.

Context

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.
