KIRKUK, Kurdistan Region - A car bomb exploded Saturday night in Kirkuk killing three civlians and wounding nine others.

The bombing went off at the Adan neighborhood on the main Kirkuk-Baghdad road via a Kia type vehicle.

Officials in Kirkuk told Rudaw correspondent Halkawt Aziz of the latest figures saying three civilians were killed and nine others were wounded. 

Aziz added security members cordoned off the area and were continuing their investigatation.

A security official added the area was targeted because it is busy during nighttime as a major park is located in the area. 

Kurdish Peshmerga and others provide security in the province; however ISIS still controls the town of Hawija, some 55 kilometers southwest of Kirkuk city.

Right after the attack, some people defiantly came to the scene of the attack waving the Kurdistan flag.

 

A man shouts in Kurdish: "Kirkuk is not afraid of anyone."


The Kirkuk Provincial Council has voted to participate in the Kurdistan Region's referendum on independence on September 25.

Oil-rich and diverse Kirkuk is one of the disputed or Kurdistani areas claimed by both Erbil and Baghdad.

He is the brother of the Traitor Bafil. I think it is not a good idea for him to be a leader.
