On Sunday, several Arab countries, including Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, and Yemen, condemned a missile attack that struck Erbil in northern Iraq.
In one of these instances, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry condemned “in the strongest terms” the missile attack that targeted Erbil, voicing solidarity with Iraq.
Saying the missile targeted Israeli facilities in the region, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) claimed responsibility for Saturday’s strike in the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG).
Elsewhere, Jordan described the assault as a “terrorist attack.”
Expressing “full support for Iraq in all the measures it takes to maintain its security and territorial integrity,” the Bahraini Foreign Ministry in a statement “denounced the missile attack on the city of Erbil.”
The Yemeni Foreign Ministry decried “the terrorist attack that targeted the security and stability of Iraq.”
Describing it as a “terrorist attack,” Nayef Al-Hajraf, the secretary-general of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), also condemned the assault.
For his part, Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit voiced “full support for the Iraqi efforts in confronting such criminal acts that targeted Iraq’s stability and security.”
Meanwhile, on social media, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi condemned the attack and announced the opening of an investigation on the attack.
