Iraqi planes bombed the Iranian capital of Tehran for a third straight day, and Baghdad warned Iran to “expect harsher blows” unless it agrees to negotiate an end to the Iran-Iraq War. Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency said that Iraqi planes were chased away by anti-aircraft fire after the attack on Tehran. It did not indicate casualties or damage. Iraq said it also bombed targets in the border city of Ilam. Iran said it shelled “military and industrial targets” in Basra and nine Iraqi border towns.
