Baghdad: Six rockets targeted an area in Erbil province in Iraq’s northern semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region, but caused no casualties, the regional Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) has said in a statement.

The rockets were fired from al-Hamdaniya on Sunday, a town 60 km west of the city of Erbil, and landed near the al-Zab River outside the Kurdish town of Khabat in Erbil province, Xinhua news agency reported, citing the Kurdish CTS statement.

No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack.
