September 2006 Sardasht incident or the September 2006 Iran-Iraq cross-border raid was a military operation on Iran-Iraqi Kurdistan border, in which at least 30 Kurdish militants of the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK) were allegedly killed by Iranian security forces and 40 injured.
Following the clash a PJAK spokesman inside Iraq declared an immediate, unilateral ceasefire. A senior Iranian military spokesman Hamid Ahmadi rejected the call, saying: "A ceasefire with a terrorist group doesn't make any sense."
The fighting came a week after the Revolutionary Guards announced a new military offensive against PJAK, or the Free Life party of Kurdistan, with the intention of driving them from their positions in Iran.
