Kirkuk bombs ‘linked to rising international terror’

KT News and Comment:

Kirkuk was shaken this week by another round of terrorist attacks, this time directly targeting the PUK (Patriotic Union of Kurdistan) and Kurdish Peshmerga forces.

On Wednesday morning a suicide bomber rammed his car, packed with explosives, into the entrance of the Kirkuk PUK office. Another car bomb struck a Pehsmerga security patrol in south-west Kirkuk, and a third devastated a checkpoint at the entrance to a Kurdish security base near Daquq, south of Kirkuk. Many were killed and injured in these atrocities.

Mayor of Kirkuk, Dr Najmadin Karim, told reporters that he blamed foreign elements from Saudi Arabia, Iran and elsewhere for the latest terror wave. He linked these attacks to developments in Syria. Recently Syria has become an open house for terrorists from across the world and the effects of this are now being felt by Iraqis and Kurds.
