SULAIMANI — A Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) official was shot and severely wounded in Erbil on Tuesday (January 21).

NRT Digital Media reporter Hersh Qadir said that the official went to Erbil to visit his sister, but was shot before arriving at his destination. He was transferred to Erbil Hospital for treatment.

Member of the PUK Leadership Council Saeed Masifi said that the motivation for the shooting was a social or domestic problem, rather than a political one.

The official, whose name was not yet released, was reportedly an official in the Ministry for Peshmerga Affairs.
