Third rocket in 72 hours targets north Iraq gas complex

A Katyusha rocket struck near an Emirati-owned gas complex in Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan region without causing damage or casualties, local officials say, the third such attack in 72 hours.

The rocket targeted the Khor Mor gas complex, owned by UAE energy company Dana Gas, says Sediq Mohammed, an official from the adjacent Qadr Qaram district.

“The rocket hit around 500 meters outside the complex,” he says.

There was no immediate claim for the attack.

Counter-terrorism forces in Kurdistan’s Sulaimaniyah province confirmed there had been no casualties or damage to the complex.

The gas field lies between the cities of Kirkuk and Sulaimaniyah.
