BAGHDAD, May 11 (Xinhua) -- The Iraqi Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned the Iranian bombardment of a mountainous area in the country's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan.

"The Iraqi government condemns the Iranian bombardment on Sidakan area in Erbil Province in Iraq's Kurdistan region," said a ministry statement, reaffirming Iraq's stance of not allowing its land to be used as bases or corridors to threaten the security of neighboring countries.

Earlier in the day, Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched an artillery attack against the bases of "terrorist" groups in Erbil in Iraq's northern Kurdistan region, Iran's semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

No casualties were caused in the attack, according to Kurdish media in Iraq.

Iranian and Turkish forces frequently attack the military bases of their Kurdish opposition parties in Kurdistan in northern and northeastern Iraq, accusing them of carrying out attacks against their home countries from the Iraqi Kurdish region.
