An Iranian opposition group in Paris claimed that Iranian forces are tunneling into northern Iraq in preparation for a major summer offensive. The group, the Moujahedeen, said that Iranian volunteer forces have dug a large tunnel extending from the vicinity of Marivan in northern Iran and crossing the border in a mountainous region, bypassing Iraqi defenses. The group said that work on the tunnel began 2 1/2 years ago and that several Iranian army and volunteer divisions have been sent to the area recently in preparation for the offensive.
