CAIRO, November 19. /TASS/. At least five people died and 22 were injured in a terrorist attack on November 19 in the capital of the Iraqi Kurdistan, the city of Erbil, Iraqi Alsumaria TV channel reported.
According to the broadcaster, the car packed with explosives parked outside the building of the local govrenorate was blown up by a suicide bomber. Among those killed were three security guards of the government building, the others were civilians.
At the moment, all Iraqis injured in the attack were brought to the nearest hospital, health workers estimate their state as critical and say the death toll can increase.
Iraqi Kurdistan is considered to be one of the most peaceful regions in Iraq, where numerous groups operate, primarily the "Islamic state" (IS). The last major attack in Erbil was carried out in 2013, when two people died during the attack on the security headquarters of Iraqi Kurdistan.
Meanwhile, local observers consider that the attack in Erbil could be organized by IS fighters, who are fought against by Peshmerga armed Kurdish fighters in Iraq as well as recently in Syrian Kobane which is on the border with Turkey. According to Kurdish sources, the number of extremists killed over 65 days of fightings in Kobane exceeded 3,000.
