    Three Iranian Revolutionary Guardsmen died from wounds sustained during a clash with the outlawed PEJAK separatists near the Turkish border, an Iranian news agency said on Monday.

    The semi-official Fars News Agency quoted a Guards spokesman as saying the fighting took place on Saturday.

    Iranian media had earlier said nine separatists were killed on that day, but Fars did not make clear if it was during the same clash, the AP reported.

    "These three Guardsmen were wounded two days ago in clashes with separatists ... and attained martyrdom after they were transported to hospital," the AP quoted spokesman Reza Rezvani as telling Fars.

    Turkey and Iran have been long fighting against the terrorist movements operated by both the outlawed PKK separatists and PEJAK, the PKK’s breakaway faction in Iran.

    The PKK is considered a terrorist organization by Turkey and most of the international community, including the EU and the U.S..
