At least two Peshmerga forces were killed in roadside bomb blast when three explosives planted by the PKK terror group detonated in northern Iraq’s Duhok province, local media said on Wednesday.

According to Erbil-based Kurdistan 24 news outlet, injuries were also reported from the blast in Nahla valley of Aqrah district.

Tensions between the PKK and the Kurdish Regional Government of northern Iraq have been rising since last December, when the PKK moved in Al-Hasaka against the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), the largest party in the semiautonomous region.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants./agencies
