ImageSULAIMANIYA, Iraq (Reuters) – Iranian artillery fire rained down on a remote area of northeastern Iraq on Friday, causing some material damage but no casualties, a local Kurdish official said.

The artillery bombardment was intermittent, said Azad Asso, a district mayor for Jarawa district at the Iranian border, around 195 km (120 miles) northeast of Sulaimaniya.

Asso said the bombardment began in the afternoon and continued into the early evening.

Iran occasionally shells northern Iraq, where it says Iranian Kurdish separatist fighters take shelter.

The last reported bombardment occurred in August, when an Iraqi civilian was wounded by rocket fire.
