SULAIMANI A resident told NRT nearly 25 militants tried enter the village of Liheban in Kirkuk province’s Sargaran sub-district on Saturday (December 4) night.

Villagers responded to the attack, which began at about 10 pm and continued until 3 am.

The villager said neither Iraqi Security Forces nor Peshmerga aided them in the attack, adding this was the fourth such attack in which the villagers had to defend themselves.

Another villager said there were formerly 60 families in the village but only ten remain, and they are willing to leave.

The resident said living conditions in their village have deteriorated and their farmland has been damaged.
