SRSG Kubiš condemns Tuz Khurmatu bombing

Baghdad, 22 November 2017 – Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Ján Kubiš, strongly condemned the deadly car bomb attack in the town of Tuz Khurmatu, Salah El Din Province, on Tuesday, 21 November, in which scores of civilians were killed or wounded.

“Terrorists have struck again in Iraq, causing death and injury to innocent civilians, this time in Tuz Khurmatu,” SRSG Kubiš said. “They know that they have been defeated on the battlefront and that is why they resort to these cowardly tactics against innocent civilians. My condolences go the families of the deceased in their time of grief, and my heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery go to those injured”.
