Iran-Iraq war: both sides say they're winning

Iraq said Sunday its forces had killed more than 14,500 Iranians in the past five days while Iran said its latest thrust was continuing and that its men had wiped out much of an Iraqi Army division.

The official Iraqi news agency said Iraqi forces were now in control of both the Misan province border area and the front farther south near the port of Basra.

Iran's Majlis (parliament) speaker, Hojatoleslam Hashemi Rafsanjani, hinted at a possible new offensive Sunday when he told the house the Iraqis had no idea where Iranian forces would strike next.

Iran said its forces had killed more than 7,000 Iraqis since it launched its latest thrusts last week.
