The PKK terror group carried out a rocket attack Tuesday on a television station’s building in Duhok, in Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

There was property damage because of the attack.

The Duhok-based Hani Press and Communication Center' said a building owned by Duhok Radio and Television Media Group was targeted with rockets by the terror group.

"We condemn this terrorist attack. The PKK must leave the Kurdistan region. The PKK should know that media centers are an indicator of civilization. These attacks and threats will not put pressure on anyone," it said.

The Media Group is known for its closeness to the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) led by Massoud Barzani.

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