US missiles 'hit Iranian village'

Two American missiles struck a village in south-west Iran early today.
The news was given in a report by the country's Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
IRNA had said yesterday that three people were injured when an earlier US missile struck an oil depot in Abadan.
The state-run news agency also said British and American jets had entered Iranian airspace several times.
The two rockets hit Manyuhi village near the border with Iraq's Al-Faw Peninsula, an Iranian military commander told IRNA.
He gave no details of casualties or damage.
"In the border city of Arvand-Kenar, the invading American and British airplanes violated the airspace of the Islamic Republic of Iran three times," the commander said.
"In two cases, two rockets... hit the Manyuhi village."
The governor of Abadan told IRNA that three people, including a guard at the oil depot, had been released from hospital after receiving treatment.
Iran has strongly condemned the US-led military assault on Iraq.

4. I googled and dailymail.co.uk is the only outfit reporting this.

Tweets also state that it is "unconfirmed".

I am pretty sure the Pentagon or Obama would not be that stupid.

6. I noticed that as well, but thought that this should be posted here nonetheless.

Hopefully, the Daily Mail is wrong.

8. The CBS take on this:

Report: Stray U.S. Missiles Hit Iran
(AP) As many as three U.S. missiles aimed at targets in Iraq may have landed in Iran, two officials at the Pentagon said Saturday.

The official Iranian news agency reported that four rockets have landed in Iran over the past two days.

U.S. and Iranian officials are discussing the matter and Iran realizes that any strike was unintentional, said the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity.

At least three people were injured, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

OP info/article is VERY OLD.

Even though there is no date on the OP article,
there are 'other' articles on the web with the same info from a couple of YEARS ago.
