The Guard's website said today that the 10 belonged to a "terrorist group affiliated with global arrogance," referring to the United States, and that several other militants were wounded in clashes late yesterday. The Guard did not say whether its forces suffered casualties.
The fighting took place near the Kurdish town of Oshnavieh, in an area that has seen occasional clashes between Iranian forces and Kurdish separatists, as well as Islamic State-linked militants.
Last month at least 10 Iranian border guards were killed in an attack by unidentified gunmen near Iraqi border.
