Turkey condemns Kirkuk suicide bombings

Turkey has condemned the suicide bombings that hit Kirkuk on Sunday, the Baghdad Post reported. 


Two suicide bombers killed at least five people and wounded more than 20 in an attack on oil-rich Kirkuk, police and medical sources said.

It was the first such attack since the central Iraqi government in Baghdad seized Kirkuk last month from Kurdish forces that had controlled the oil city of a million people for three years.


In a statement, Turkey stressed it supports Iraqi efforts to combat terrorism. 


Analysts told the Baghdad Post that Iran and its militias operating in Iraq stand behind the attacks.
