Five killed, at least 29 wounded by Erbil car bomb

The attack aftermath

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A car bomb attack outside the Erbil Governorate building at noon Wednesday killed four people and wounded at least 29 others, the health ministry told Rudaw.

A Hyundai Elantra vehicle loaded with explosives tried to storm its way into the compound but was fired on by guards, exploding before getting to the building itself, witnesses and officials said.

Two guards and two civilians close to the building were killed in the attack, and 29 wounded were rushed to hospitals, the ministry said. Ten vehicles were also destroyed by the blast.

"An unfortunate event has unfolded today," Erbil’s governor told Rudaw, blaming the Islamic State for the attack. “Kurdistan is facing a great threat regionally from ISIS," he said.

"Terrorist acts happen all over the world, and we will strive to protect the Kurdistan region," the governor said.

Bomb attacks in the Kurdish capital of Erbil are rare, but occur almost on a daily basis in Baghdad, primarily in Shiite-dominated neighborhoods. 

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack. However, the Islamic State (ISIS), has been at war with the Kurdistan Region in northern Iraq. ISIS has carried out numerous suicide-bomb attacks throughout Iraq

Whoever it was, let it be well known, for every Kurd that dies, 10 take up arms for Kurdiya. Just how many of us will you be able to kill? A million? Two million? You have to kill us all, at least 40 million loyal Kurds, in order to defeat us. Biji Kurdistan! Also this is the only way cowards THINK they can win wars. Long live the resilient Kurds. I think Iraqi Warrior is a Turk. Shias may not agree with us on everything, however the annihilation of ISIS they'd love to witness more than anyone. Turks are well known foor being deceiveful and acting like snakes. Don't fall for their Turkish/Snake'ish traps my dear brothers and sisters. Be aware of Persian nationalists too, Turks and Persians are our greatest enemies. Arabs can only scream and kill, the two others have much more advanced and sneaky ways to harm us, especially the Turks, they're our nr one enemy.

Don't comment anything against Arabs. Be reasonable, there are also Kurdish ISIS terrorists. Don't fall into this trap! This is what ISIS wants.

This will happen, if Kurdistan keeps bringing arabs into our Lovely Kurdistan. The Kurdish government needs to do something with the arabs who are living in Kurdistan, specially Hewler, if they want the best for the kurdish people. Kurdistan is build up on all the blood of our martyrs that were killed by them so why even help thousands thousands of arabs, first help the kurdish people, then Kurdistan can think of others!!!

For Turkey only Kurds that accept to be 3rd. class citizens are brothers, all others are enemies.
