Iraqi warplanes attacked five Iranian border cities, including Abadan and Kermanshah, an army camp and a ship in the Persian Gulf off the coast of Iran, an Iraqi military spokesman said. The spokesman told state radio that the warplanes made a “destructive hit” on “a large maritime target,” Iraq’s term for an oil tanker, near Iran’s main oil terminal at Kharg Island. However, Persian Gulf shipping sources said they had no information on any new attack on a ship.
