ERBIL — A group of armed men early hours on Friday opened fire at the representation office of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Halabja.
A local source told BasNews the men were driving on a motorcycle and a car, and they escaped after firing multiple rounds.
It caused damages to the building but no one was hurt, the source confirmed.
KDP faction at the Kurdistan Region Parliament condemned the attack and urged security forces to find the perpetrators and face them with justice.
It also blamed the local authorities in Halabja, where the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) is dominant, for failing to protect political offices as such attacks on the KDP are fairly frequent in Sulaymaniyah and Halabja.
