SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq — Iranian artillery bombarded parts of northern Iraq's Kurdish region where Kurdish rebels opposed to Tehran are said to be holed up, an Iraqi Kurdish official said on Sunday.
"From 6:00 pm (1500 GMT) Saturday until this morning, Iranians fired on the villages of Khanawa, Totma, Marado, Sourkan and Nalia Rach, causing extensive damage to agricultural land and losses of livestock," said Azad Oussou.
No one was killed or wounded in the shelling.

Does this mean that Iran is now a part of the Iraq War of Terror, against America and its allies?

Although this happens sporadically it rarely makes mainstream news. This very well could be the spark that ignites war with Iran. In fact I couldn't really see a better reason knowing our corrupt government.
ANKARA, Turkey – Turkey's military says its warplanes have struck Kurdish rebel targets inside northern Iraq. The military's press office said on Saturday that Turkish warplanes pounded positions across the border on Friday after army helicopters came under anti-aircraft fire from Iraqi soil. It said the rebel positions there were destroyed. The helicopters were chasing a group of Turkish Kurdish rebels who killed two soldiers in a cross-border attack near the Daglica area along the Iraqi border. Five rebels were killed in the clashes. It was the largest reported clash between the troops and autonomy-seeking Kurdish rebels since the guerrillas killed four soldiers and wounded seven others in an attack on a military outpost in eastern Turkey on April 30.
Nobody seems to give the kurds any attention,
in a time of war the Kurds will fight against the Iranians,
we should expect a greater kurdistan to emerge.
