BAGHDAD — For the first time in decades, Iraq has attacked neighboring Syria.

The government of Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki said the Iraq Army attacked a convoy in eastern Syria.

Officials said Iraqi helicopters fired missiles toward vehicles sent by Al Qaida’s Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

“The army struck eight tanker trucks in Wadi Suwab inside Syrian territory as they were trying to enter Iraqi territory to provide the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant with fuel,” Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Saad Maan said.

Maan said the helicopter strike on April 27 killed at least eight people. The official said Syria was not informed of the attack.

“There was no coordination with the Syrian regime,” Maan said.
