Tehran denied reports of distributing pamphlets in Kurdish villages in northern Iraq warning inhabitants of Iranian military operations in the area, Tehran media reported Thursday.

ISNA news agency quoted government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham as saying that Tehran did not know about existence of such flyers.

If such pamphlets did indeed exist, Elham said, they "would just be another propaganda and psychological war tactic against Iran with the aim of creating panic in Iran's neighbourhood."

Local sources in northern Iraq said the purported flyers, written in Kurdish, instructed civilians to relocate in order to avoid either ground or airborne military operations against anti-Iranian fighters.
