Kurdish security foils boy suicide bomber in Kirkuk; two other attacks on same day

By Rudaw 21/8/2016

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - A boy suicide bomber in his early teens was arrested by Kurdish security forces in Kirkuk on Sunday night before detonating his explosives belt, after two other suicide attacks on the same day in the Kurdish city.

 

The young bomber, aged between 12 and 13, was captured by security forces in Kirkuk’s Huzairan neighborhood, according to a Rudaw reporter on the scene.

 

“Security forces are now defusing the explosives belt,” the reporter said.

 

A few hours earlier, a suicide bomber detonated his payload at the Wasit neighborhood in front of a Shiite shrine, wounding three people. 

 

That followed another suicide bomb attack in the same neighborhood that caused no casualties.

 

“There is a dangerous campaign tonight against Kirkuk,” a security official, told Rudaw. 

 

The attacks follow recent successful military offensives by Peshmerga forces against the Islamic State (ISIS) group, which has been on retreat after losing large swathes of territory to the Kurdish forces.

When you catch one of these, quickly stuff his mouth full of bacon, then see if he has the spine (or the insanity) to push the button.

There is a very serious job to be done concerning each attackers even dead.Collect the ADN.Save it;beging to investigate about their family,detecting their families would help in surrounding 75 % of potential group,since the people are trained to follow that trends it is not only a traditional war but also what i could call a society war with all his intrigacy

Incredible footage, what a horrible situation. Yesterday a kid like that killed over 50 civilians in a Kurdish wedding in Gaziantep in Turkey, and what did Erdogan and the gang do? they condemned PKK even though they knew with certainty that ISIS was behind the attack

Good. "Rojava Peshmerga" work for KDP and Turkey and are enemies of the people's self administration of Rojava.
