A missile attack targeted an oil refinery in Iraq's northern city of Erbil on Sunday, causing a fire in one of its main tanks that was later brought under control, Iraqi security forces said, according to Reuters. A missile also landed in the outer fence of the refinery without causing any casualties, the forces added.

Earlier on Sunday, the anti-terrorism authorities in Kurdistan region said six missiles landed near the KAR refinery in Erbil, adding they were launched from Nineveh province. The security forces said they found a launch pad and four missiles in the Nineveh Plain after the attack and defused them. In March, multiple rockets were fired towards Erbil. Sky News Arabia reported that the rockets targeted the US consulate in Erbil. One person was reportedly hurt in that attack.
