NO:116 - 15 August 2007, Press Release Regarding the Suicide Attacks in Iraq;(Unofficial Translation)


We have learned with regret that suicide attacks in the evening of August 14 using fuel trucks in the Kahtaniya area of Sinjar took the lives of more than 175 Iraqi citizens and left many people wounded, destroying their houses.

We extend our condolences to the relatives of those who lost their lives in the abhorrent attack and express our wishes of speedy recovery to the wounded.

We strongly condemn these relentless attacks, as with all other terrorist incidents, and expect the perpetrators be captured and brought to justice as soon as possible.

Turkey’s support will continue to the efforts aimed at building an Iraq where violence would come to an end and all segments of Iraqi population live together in peace and prosperity.
