Thousands of residents on Monday took to the main streets of Akre town to protest last week’s attacks by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of Iran against the Kurdistan Region’s Erbil, where at least four civilians were killed.

Members of various faith communities and professions took part in the mass gathering in the center of Akre town, where they raised the Kurdistan flag and chanted patriotic slogans.

“We call on Iran and the international community to put an end to the attacks on Erbil,” a protestor who did not provide his name told Kurdistan24, adding the Kurdish region does not eye on anyone’s lands.

“Our will is stronger than Mount Peres,” another protestor said, referring to one of the Kurdistan Region’s mountains.

Mass protests have also been held in Bardarash district.

Akre is following Erbil, Duhok, and Zakho, where they have similarly held large protests against the deadly attacks that had targeted the private residence of a Kurdish construction tycoon, Peshraw Dizayee, who was killed along with his less-than-a-year-old daughter, a guest, and a housekeeper.
