Question Neutrophil's involvement in Hypersensitivity reactions

I have read in UW and noted it down in FA, but can't find the Q where i noted it down from
Neutrophils are primary phagocytic killers of innate immune system and DO NOT PLAY A ROLE IN ANY OF THE 4 Hypersensitivity REACTIONS.
If i am wrong please correct me....
Kaplan table on Hypersensitivity reactions gives PMN's are one of the effector cells in type II and type III reactions.
