Iranian bombing kills child, injures parents in northern Iraq
Iranian artillery fire Tuesday night killed a two- year-old child and injured his parents in a northern Iraqi village near the Iranian border, Iraqi radio reported Wednesday.
Iranian forces fired artillery rounds for two hours into the village near Zarawa, a police official told the Voices of Iraq (VOI) news agency. Zarawa is more than 500 kilometres north of Baghdad.
The child's mother is in a stable condition, but the father's health is critical, the official added.
Northern Kurdish villages in Iraq are routinely exposed to Turkish air bombings and Iranian artillery targeting the Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) and the Party For a Free Life in Kurdistan, which oppose the Turkish and Iranian regimes, reported dpa.
