Iranian troops cross border Into Iraqi Kurdistan

Iranian troops crossed Tuesday the border into Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq, Iraq’s al-Arabiya channel reported. The incursion caused 220 families to flee the area, Arabiya said without giving further details or saying where it got the information.

Iranian troops were operating three kilometers inside Iraqi territory following a series of clashes in recent days between Iranian forces and rebels of Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), an Iraqi official said, requesting anonymity.
