Iran Bombs Kurdish Base in Iraq; 1 Killed

November 10, 1994| Associated Press

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Iranian warplanes bombed a Kurdish rebel base in northern Iraq on Wednesday, killing at least one person and wounding three.

The opposition Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan said a civilian woman was killed and three rebels were wounded. Its statement gave no details of damage.

Iran's official Islamic Republic News Agency, monitored in Cyprus, said its pilots had attacked the "command headquarters, munition depot and center of counterrevolutionaries." It was the second Iranian attack in three days on Iranian opponents in Iraq.

The air strike was unlikely to draw Iraqi retaliation because both Iraq and Iran have been fighting Kurdish minorities that have sought autonomy for decades.
