Earlier, a statement from the Kurdistan Region’s anti-terrorism authority said that six missiles had been fired yesterday. The missiles were fired from the province of Nineveh and landed near the KAR oil refinery. However, the statement did not mention whether there were any casualties or casualties in the incident.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Qadimi has condemned the attack. He said in a phone conversation with Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani that the armed forces would find the culprits.

On April 8, three missiles were fired near the same oil refinery. No one was injured in the incident. A source in the Kurdistan Regional Government told Reuters that Iraqi Kurdish businessman and CEO of the energy company KAR Group, Baz Karim Barzanjoi, owned the oil refinery.


In March, Iraq was hit by a series of ballistic missile attacks in Irbil. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a U.S. military base. However, only one person was injured in the attack.
