Iranian shells continue against PJAK militants in N Iraq

Already on Thursday morning Iranian artillery had shelled seven villages in the area of Qalit Diza in Sulaymanyah province in Iraq's Kurdish Autonomous Region, Hasan Abdallah, the head of Qalit Diza council, told the Voices of Iraq news (VOI) news agency.

The shelling continued until Sunday but caused no casualties.

The Iranian army frequently shells villages in the mountains of Sulaymanyah where it alleges that rebels from the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK) are based.

The PJAK is a part of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
