TEHRAN - Iran's Revolutionary Guards on Monday rejected a cease-fire declared by Kurdish rebel group PJAK as "meaningless" as long as PJAK forces remained on the borders of the Islamic Republic, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

PJAK (Party of Free Life of Kurdistan), is an offshoot of Turkey's separatist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), whose bases in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq were bombed by Turkish warplanes on Sunday.

Iran said on Saturday its troops had killed 30 PJAK fighters and wounded 40 in several days of fighting.
