Iraq continues confrontation of US planes
Iraq, Politics, 4/19/1999
An Iraqi spokesman stated today that his country will continue its confrontation of any planes penetrating its airspace.
Iraq announced yesterday that its ground defenses opened fire on tens of US and British planes that were patrolling over the no-fly zone in southern Iraq.
In the meantime, Baghdad stated that four persons died two days ago and another was injured by raids launched by US planes in northern Iraq.
On the other hand, the national council for the Iranian resistance expected that Tehran would launch attacks on Iraqi sites in revenge for the assassination of Brig. Gen. Ali Sayyad Shirazi last week.
The council said that Iran is getting ready for launching air raids on the sites of the Iranian national liberation army in the Iraqi territories.
