Dirty terrorists! Where are the Asayîs and Pêsmerge forces? How can this coward thugs shoot a Kurd in Kirkuk without a punishment? Why doesn't our people go to the streets when we have a martyr? Our Kirkukîs must show this puppets of enqere that they are not welcome in our city! Burn this terror nest down!

Asayish should investigate the shooting and arrest the suspects. It appears this provocation is a plan from outside Kirkuk to try to disrupt the referendum vote and scare the people of Kirkuk.

A clear provocation by the foreign sponsored "Turkmen Front", their aim is to cause civil unrest in Kirkuk so that Baghdad or Tehran or Ankara intervene militarily. It's very important that Kirkuks law enforcement swiftly apprehend the lowlife murderers and try them in a court of law. If they don't do this mobs might take matter into their own hands and those who want to ignite a war will get their wish.

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