TEHRAN - Iran threatened on Monday to take military action against the Iraq-based Kurdish rebel group PJAK, saying the head of Iraq's Kurdistan region had handed the group land without telling the government in Baghdad.

A senior Iranian military official accused Masoud Barzani, the Kurdistan president, of "giving 300,000 hectares of land to the PJAK terrorist group without the knowledge of the central government in Baghdad", the semi-official Fars news agency said.

"Iran reserves its right to target and destroy terrorist bases in the border areas," he said. "This terrorist group carries out operations against the Iranian nation with the support of Iraq's Kurdish regional government."
