Iraq says its forces hit Iranian naval targets

Iraq said its Navy and Air Force attacked and hit ''four large enemy naval targets'' in the Persian Gulf Thursday. (Owners of a Greek ship said a land-based missile struck its engine room, setting the ship ablaze.)

An Iraqi military spokesman said Iraqi jets also shot down two Iranian helicopters, which were seen falling into the sea.

The spokesman said the naval targets were intercepted in the Khor Musa Channel leading to the southern Iranian port of Bandar Khomeini at the heas of the Gulf.
