UN’s Kubiš Condemns Terrorist Attack at Tarmiya, Supports Authorities’ Efforts to Thwart the Terrorists’ Aims

Baghdad Iraq, 2 May 2018 - The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Ján Kubiš, strongly condemns the terrorist shootings at Tarmiya, north of Baghdad, in which a number of innocent civilians were killed and wounded.

The Special Representative offers his condolences to the families of those who were murdered, and wishes the injured a complete and rapid recovery. He reiterates his support for the Iraqi authorities, including the security forces, in their efforts to thwart the terrorists’ attempts to destroy, destabilise and divide communities across Iraq.

“Terrorist sleeper cells continue to mount sporadic attacks, despite the defeat of their main military structures by Iraqi security forces. They aim to undermine stability and break the morale of Iraqis who have begun to enjoy the benefits of peace. They will fail, as they failed before. I call on the authorities, and local communities, to remain alert to thwart the terrorists’ plans,” Mr. Kubiš said.

The Special Representative also voiced concern at the news of a bomb attack on 1 May, targeting Iraqi police in the liberated city of Mosul and causing casualties.
