Each of Kurdistan parliament speaker, Dr. Kemal Kirkuki, as well as Iraqi MP Dr. Nejmedin Kerim, visited wounded people at the Kirkuk hospital. In a statement, Kirkuki said, “Although we had a session (in Kurdistan parliament), but when we heard about this (explosion), we canceled the meeting and arrived to see the casualties and the incident at close. We are ready to do whatever they (wounded people) want.” Kirkuki insisted on their readiness to do what’s needed to the wounded people. “We will send them to Kurdistan hospitals if needed.” Lieutenant Jamal Tahir held a press conference to condemn any act of terrorism targeting civilians. Tahir, the chief of Kirkuk’s police said, “They (terrorists) manage these disgusting acts, shed civilians’ blood without considering any humanitarian values. We encounter them by any means.” Declaring that the act left 21 wounded, Tahir also noticed that the terrorists targeted Kurdish neighborhoods, “Terrorists’ goal is to make a dispute among different ethnic groups of Kirkuk, but they can’t achieve it.”
