SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said on Saturday that it had resumed exports of crude oil, after its pipeline was attacked last week.

“The Kurdistan Regional Government resumed oil exportation with the same capacity as before,” KRG spokesman Jotiar Adil said in a tweet.

On October 30, the KRG said the Region’s oil exportation pipeline was targeted on Oct. 28, without naming any group for the attack.

“The KRG strongly condemns the terrorist act of targeting the Kurdistan Region’s oil exportation pipeline,” the Kurdish government said in a statement.

The People’s Defense Forces (HPG) said in a statement on Oct. 29 that its fighters carried out a “successful sabotage action” targeting Botash oil pipeline passing through Bagok region in Mardin October 28.

“As a result of this action, the pipeline at the site was completely destroyed,” it said.
