Iraqi parliament committee says Iran’s missile attack targeted ‘house’ in Erbil

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — An Iraqi parliament’s committee investigating an Iranian missile attack on Erbil said on Monday the place targeted by Iran in the Kurdistan Region’s capital was a “house” and that it wasn’t used by any agency.

On March 13, Iran’s revolutionary guards fired 12 missiles at a villa of a Kurdish businessman, which it said was an “Israeli strategic center” in Erbil.

Authorities in the Kurdistan Region denied claims of Israeli centers in the Region, calling the claims “baseless”.

Following the attack, the Iraqi Council of Representatives and the federal government formed committees to investigate the missile attack.

The parliament’s committee released results of its investigations on Monday, saying the attack violated Iraq’s sovereignty and that it had struck a house in the Kurdistan Region’s capital.

“Iran must compensate people and places that were damaged in the attack,” the committee said.

It also warned that it would “take legal and diplomatic measures against Iran as the attack violated Iraq’s sovereignty.”

The Iraqi government’s committee formed by Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi who also visited the place that was targeted has yet to release results of its investigations.
