AL concerns over Iran’s shelling on Iraqi Kurd villages

ImageCAIRO, May 6 (Xinhua) — The Arab League (AL) expressed Wednesday its concerns about the Iran's shelling on Kurd villages in northern Iraq.

The AL considered the Iran's shelling as a violation to Iraq's territory and is not in line with good neighborhood policies, adding that these actions will not serve regional stability, said an AL statement.

Iranian warplanes and artillery carried out a predawn bombardment on Iraqi villages near the Iranian-Iraqi border on Monday.

Iraq Foreign Ministry Tuesday condemned Iranian shelling of border villages in northern Kurdistan region, requesting Iran to immediately halt such violations, and warning of "severe negative impact on overall relations between the two countries."

Iran and Turkey often attack areas inside Iraq, targeting Kurdish rebels who use Iraq's Kurdistan as a safe haven and a launch pad for their attacks against authorities in Iran and Turkey.
