SULAIMANI — A man and three of his sons died after a planted bomb exploded near Makhmour’s Rwala village early on Tuesday (October 20).

Another son was wounded.

Head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s (PUK) committee in the district Rashad Gallali told NRT Digital Media that “the father and his sons were busy doing their job in the area.”

He added that there is a base of an Iraqi Security Forces brigade near the village and that units were immediately dispatched to the scene.

Gallali added that he expected the bomb to be a leftover from the war against Islamic State (ISIS).
