Late on May 1, a rocket attack targeted the district of Khabat in Erbil province in the heart of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

In a statement, the Directorate General of Counter Terrorism in Kurdistan said that at least six rockets landed near Badinan river without causing any casualties or material losses. According to the agency, the rockets were launched from the district of Bartella in the nearby province of Nineveh.

The attack was carried out with an improvised Grad 122 mm rocket launcher hidden in the trunk of a mini truck. The launcher self-destructed after the attack.

According to the Sabereen News channel on Telegram, the target of the rocket attack was an oil refinery run by the Kurdistan-based Kar Company. This is yet to be confirmed.

This was the second rocket attack to hit the Kurdistan region in less than a month. On April 6, a rocket attack targeted an oil refinery in the district of Khabat in the Kurdistan Region. Iranian-made Arash-4 122 mm rockets were used in the attack.

The recent attacks on Kurdistan may be the result of a power struggle between key political and economic players in the region, or an attempt by pro-Iranian forces to pressure the region’s government.

A recent report by Reuters said that the March 13 Iranian missile strike on Erbil was a response to a plan by the autonomous region to supply gas to Turkey and Europe with Israeli help. Back then, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said that the target of the missile strike was an Israeli intelligence center.

Iran should just talk to the Barazani’s/ Talabani’s and discuss a merger with Iran. The Kurds got nobody else to look after em. Might as well come back to the motherland. It should be likewise with the Armenians too. Stop all this nonsense.

Yes, do you know that the Barzanis are conspiring with Turkey and Iran in order to take Syrian and Iraqi land?

Yet again people, never believe a Zion, Kurd, yanquis, British, or Turk-isis. “A recent report by Reuters said that the March 13 Iranian missile strike on Erbil was a response to a plan by the autonomous region to supply gas to Turkey and Europe with Israeli help. Back then, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said that the target of the missile strike was an Israeli intelligence center.”

SF, are you guys not going to mention they also said it was because of the new Iraqi government BS? I sure as hell heard them cry about that more, this gas deal came out now… do you see what I’m putting down? Kurds are worshipping Zion and Iran knows that well. It is not a lie as well as Kurds don’t have any “supporters” so they became the slaves of Zion and yanquis. But like ISIS/Neo-Nazis/yanquis they also never learn history – Zion loots and kills that all there is to them and nothing more. No one likes them and no one welcomes them – maybe because they opening saying how they want to destroy the west and middle east openly. Just look at Zion part in the US, oh sorry I mean “team Biden” yeah…

The common basement dweller mind = if he is not with us he is against us.

The truth = there are many sects and groups fighting each other for control.

Zionists are one case. I believe that the UK support the Muslim Brotherhood while the US support Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Turkey, Iran and Muslim Brotherhood are best friends together.

“The truth” never comes out of Zion you rtded Zion slave, go on and suck off BiBi.
