February 03, 1985

Iraq said its troops repelled an early morning Iranian attack, aimed at retaking positions captured by Iraq last week on the central front of the Persian Gulf war. An Iraqi command statement said the Iranians, for the second day, attacked positions held by the 606th Brigade and were met with heavy artillery and mortar bombardment. In another war development, about 30 captured Iranians said in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad that they will not return to their homeland. Speaking in Farsi through an interpreter, they said they will either remain in Iraq or travel abroad.
