The IRGC fired seven missiles at Kurdish Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) headquarters in Iraqi Kurdistan; the KDPI announced that "fifteen Kurdish politicians and civilians died, while 50 others were injured" in the attack. In a statement, Iraq's foreign ministry asserted the government's "keenness on the security of its neighbours and its refusal to use its territory to threaten the security of those countries", but added that "it rejects the violation of Iraqi sovereignty by bombing any target within Iraqi territory without prior coordination with the Iraqi authorities to spare civilians the effects of such operations".
