Iraq Says 24 Injured in Raids 

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Air raids on northern and southern Iraq injured 24
civilians today, the country's official news agency said. Twenty people
were injured in Mosul, 250 miles north of Baghdad, and 14 houses were
either damaged or destroyed, the Iraqi News Agency reported, quoting a
statement by the Iraqi armed forces. Four civilians were injured in a
separate wave of attacks on southern Iraq, the agency said. 

The U.S. military said its warplanes attacked Iraqi air defense sites
Thursday in the northern no-fly zone after being threatened by radar and
fired upon. A statement from Incirlik air base in southern Turkey said
Air Force F-16s and F-15s bombed Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery and
military sites near Mosul. F-16s also launched missiles on radar sites
south and west of the city. The attacks came after the Iraqis fired
anti-aircraft artillery and surface-to-air missiles, the statement said.
None of the planes were hit, it said, adding that damage to the Iraqi
forces was being assessed.
