Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) The office of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s political party has sustained a second assault in a week by unknown individuals, sources were quoted saying on Thursday.

The source told Alsumaria News that the office of Islamic Dawa Party, located at the mainly-Turkmen Tiseen neighborhood in central Kirkuk, sustained an attack with a grenade by unknown persons.

The source said the attack did not leave any damages, but added that police forces cordoned the facility off.

Earlier reports had told of a similar attack on Monday on the same facility.

Kirkuk has been at the center of the political crisis which erupted between Baghdad and Erbil after the latter had held a controversial referendum on independence from Iraq in September, including Kirkuk as a voting constituency.

The Iraqi government had removed Kirkuk’s governor, Najm al-Din Karim, a Kurdish politician, for backing the poll, and has declared plans to take over security at the province from Kurdish forces along with other disputed areas.

Kirkuk, with a mixed Arab, Kurdish and Turkmen population, is a major source of Iraqi oil exports, and both governments have disputed over the fair mechanism for distributing revenues from those exports.
