Iran 'attacks Iraq Kurdish area'
Iraq has accused Iranian forces of entering Iraqi territory and shelling Kurdish rebel positions in the north.
Iranian troops bombed border areas near the town of Hajj Umran before crossing into Iraq, the defence ministry in Baghdad said on Sunday.
It said the Iranians targeted the PKK, a Kurdish group that has waged a 15-year insurgency against Turkey.
The PKK is believed to have links with anti-Iranian Kurdish fighters. There are no details on casualties.
The Iraqi defence ministry also says Iran launched a similar attack on Kurdish rebel positions in the same area on 21 April.
There are no reported comments from Tehran on either of the alleged incidents.
These boarder skirmish go on all the time. The rebels probably went into Iranian ground space and tried to pull something off, and the Iranian army knowing where they congregate lobed a few missiles and artillery shells into their area on the Iraqi side.
Hot pursuit, both ways.
I don't have flies. I did use a hand grenade on a Fire Ant hill once and some napalm once too.
We put an incindiary grenade into a spider den at Ft. Benning when I was in Basic hehe
