Rockets rained down on a Baghdad neighborhood Monday night, a few hours after five bombs hit northwest Tehran, near the police headquarters.

The Mujahideen Khaleq armed opposition, a group of Iranian exiles based in Iraq, has claimed responsibility for the Tehran blasts. Iranian television reports six people were wounded.

The rocket attack in Iraq wounded eight people, according to the official Iraqi News Agency. It says the buildings hit were in the same neighborhood, Baladiyat, targeted in a March attack which killed six Palestinians and Iraqis.

Iraq is blaming Tehran for the ”anti-human” rocket attack and says it reserves the right to revenge ”at the appropriate time.”

According to Iraq, this is the 92nd Iranian attack on Iraq in recent years.
