Three Katyusha rockets targeted an oil refinery in the Erbil governorate of northeastern Iraq on Wednesday evening, according to the Kurdistan Directorate General of Counter Terrorism. No injuries or damages were reported in the attack. No party has taken responsibility for the rocket fire as of yet. The rockets were fired from the Al-Hamdaniya district of the Nineveh Governorate, near Mosul, according to Kurdish authorities. The refinery reportedly belongs to the KAR group. The home of Baz Karim, the CEO of the KAR group, was targeted by missiles fired by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) from Iran last month. The IRGC claimed at the time that the attack was carried out in response to "recent crimes of the fake Zionist regime.”
