NEWS: Three Iraqis killed in US air strikes: Baghdad




Three Iraqis killed in US air strikes: Baghdad

18:04 GMT, 08 May 1999

BAGHDAD, May 8 (AFP) -Three Iraqis were killed and two others wounded in a
raid by US warplanes on Iraq's northern no-fly zone on Saturday, an Iraqi
military spokesman said here.

"Enemy planes fired 18 times on civilian and military positions in the
north, causing the martyrdom of three Iraqi citizens and wounding two
others," a spokesman for Iraq's anti-aircraft defenses told the official INA
news agency.

The spokesman said "private property" had also been damaged in the raid. He
did not specify if the casualties had been civilians or military personnel.

Iraqi air defences "heroically confronted the evil crows, forcing them to
flee" back to base in Turkey, "with failure and humiliation trailing behind
them," he said.
