The chairman of Iraq’s largest Sunni coalition has said that terrorist organizations, including the PKK, are responsible for a deadly attack that earlier this week targeted civilians in northern Iraq’s Duhok province.
The government should take serious action against these terror groups, the PKK and various local armed militias on the border with Türkiye, who he said plotted the attack that killed nine people on Wednesday, Khamis al-Khanjar, head of the Sunni al-Siyadeh bloc in parliament, demanded on social media.
The terrorist mafia in the region then carried out the attack, with the PKK’s support, Al-Khanjar, who leads the legislative bloc with the most Sunni lawmakers, said.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US, and the EU, has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants, in its over 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye.
These terrorist mafia groups of seeking to achieve political goals by killing people in the country, he accused.
Al-Khanjar voiced regret at the government’s lacking efforts against terrorists, urging the public to unite against terror groups.
