Iran shelling Kurdish villages again

Friday August 18, 2006 - Iranian forces have started firing artillery shells at a camp of Kurdish rebels in Qandil area again, killing two civilians.

The shelling started around 9:00 a.m. Friday morning, reported Awene, the independent Kurdish newspaper from Sulaymania.

Many experts believe that Iran and Turkey’s attack on Iraq’s Kurdistan are primarily intended to destroy the achievements of Kurds in that region. Attacking militants from minority Kurdish groups from Iran and Turkey is an excuse to destroy the Kurdish de-facto government in Iraq.
There have been a number of previous claims by Iraqi officials that their neighbors have conducted cross-border attacks.
