SRSG Kubiš condemns multiple suicide attacks in Tikrit

Baghdad, 5 April 2017 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Ján Kubiš, strongly condemns the multiple suicide attacks in Tikrit on Tuesday 04 April 2017 which resulted in many casualties.

“Targeting civilians and inflicting maximum casualties among civilians is the hallmark of the terrorists' despicable tactics," Mr. Kubiš said. 

“These latest suicide bombings in the Sunni heartland of Tikrit show that despite the terrorist Daesh being relentlessly routed on the battle fronts in the face of the steady advances by the Iraqi Security forces, and despite the wish of civilians that returned to the liberated cities to restart their peaceful life, the terrorists are sparing no effort to indiscriminately target everyone and anyone who is not willing to die for their barbaric inhuman Takfiri ideology.”
