No: 60, 27 February 2018, Press Release Regarding The Attack Perpetrated Against Iraqi Turkmen Front’s Office Located At Kirkuk’s Musalla District

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 27.02.2018

We are concerned about the rocket attack perpetrated yesterday (February 26th) by unidentified persons against Iraqi Turkmen Front’s office located at Kirkuk’s Musalla District where Turkmens are densely populated.

We strongly condemn this heinous attack and note the fact that after the attack Counter Terrorism Service and Federal Police units were rapidly deployed to the district and took necessary measures as a proper course of action.

It is consoling that there were no casualties during yesterday’s attack against the Turkmens, who have been subjected to systematic assaults in the recent period.

We expect that the perpetrators and instigators of the assaults that caused death or injury of dozens of Turkmens during the last four months be brought to justice and called to account for as soon as possible. We will follow this matter closely. We reiterate our call upon the relevant authorities to take the necessary measures without delay to prevent the recurrence of these incidents that target the social peace in Kirkuk, and to ensure the safety of the Turkmen community, one of the main components of Iraq. Turkmens are not alone and we are fully determined to protect their rights.
