Missile bombing of a gas field in northern Iraq

A gas field in the autonomous Kurdistan region was subjected to missile attack, according to a local official, in the fourth attack on the same field in a month, while oil and gas sites in the region witnessed similar attacks in recent months.

 

 

Ramak Ramadan, a resident of Chamchamal district in Sulaymaniyah governorate, where the target field is located in northern Iraq and owned by the Emirati "Dana Gas" company, said, "Kormore field was bombed by three Katyusha missiles."

 

 

 

 

"So far, the losses are unknown, and we are in the process of investigating to find out the losses," he told AFP.

 

 

This is the fourth time in about a month that this field has been bombed, without the attacks resulting in material and human losses. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

 

 

The gas field is located between the cities of Kirkuk and Sulaymaniyah in an area administered by the Kurdistan Regional Authorities.

 

 

In recent weeks, fuel production sites in the Kurdistan region were targeted with rockets, whose launch no one claimed.

The first missile attacks were recorded in April, then in May they targeted the Kawergosk oil refinery, one of the largest refineries in the oil-rich region northwest of Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.
