TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Sunday that a missile which
landed in the northwest of the country was probably fired by
Iraqi forces, the official IRNA news agency reported.
It said Iraq's top envoy in Tehran had been summoned to the
``Investigations show that probably the missile which hit
Sar Dasht was Iraqi-made,'' IRNA quoted Interior Minister
Abdolvahed Mousavi-Lari as saying. Sar Dasht is located close
to Iran's northwestern border with Iraqi Kurdistan.
The Iranian minister's comments came shortly after a
British Defense Ministry spokeswoman in London said that
missiles which landed in southwestern Iran on Friday and
Saturday were most likely fired by Iraqi forces.
Iran initially said three rockets which fell in its
southwest Khuzestan province had been fired by U.S. jets and
warned British and U.S. military forces attacking Iraq to
respect its airspace.
