The health minister of Kurdistan stated that there were civilian no injuries or deaths reported in the attack on Saturday night.

Erbil’s Governor Omed Khoshnaw confirmed that “at least five ‘Iranian-produced ballistic missiles’” struck the city in the dead of night, according to the Daily Mail.

At least five ‘Iranian-produced ballistic missiles’ hit the city in the early hours of Sunday, Governor Omed Khoshnaw confirmed. 

He said it was not clear whether the missiles were targeting the American consulate at the site, or the airport in the city. 

The missile attack comes as Brandon’s negotiations over the Iran nuclear deal have stalled as both sides struggle with the current situation unfolding in Ukraine.

Although the rockets came from Iran, no group has taken responsibility for the attack as of yet

From the Jeruselum Post:

No party has taken responsibility for the missile fire as of yet. Iran has threatened retaliation in recent days for the deaths of two Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) officers in an alleged Israeli airstrike in Syria last week.

Iran-backed militias reportedly targeted the Al-Tanf base, where US forces are housed, in October in retaliation for an alleged Israeli airstrikes which targeted Iranian-backed forces in Syria last year.

The Brandon administration announced this week they would start importing oil from Iran.
