BAGHDAD, Oct 14 (Reuters) Turkish artillery fired seven to eight shells into a village in northern Iraq late yesterday, witnesses in the area said.

The witnesses said the shells landed in Nezdoor village, about 5 km from the Turkish border, in Dahuk province.

No casualties or damage was reported.

Turkey routinely shells the mountainous border region, but the latest shelling came before the Turkish government was due to seek approval from parliament next week for a major operation against Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants based in the mountains of northern Iraq.
