Iraq bombs economic and military targets in Iran

Iraq said Monday its warplanes bombed Iran's main oil-export terminal at Kharg Island in the Gulf and a gas plant in the southern Iranian city of Ahvaz. The report came from the Iraqi high command.

In separate action, Iraq said its Air Force carried out 83 combat missions against Iranian troop concentrations in the central Misan sector of the front Monday. All planes returned safely to base, it said. Iran said its air defenses shot down three Iraqi jet fighters in that sector of the Gulf war front.
