SULAIMANI — A women was killed and six others were wounded in a shootout between two families in Sulaimani’s Bakrajo neighborhood on Thursday (July 2).

The Peshmerga’s 70 Force Unit Unit’s spokesperson Ahmed Latif said that the two families have members that belong to the Peshmerga, including some of the wounded.

Latif added that the soldiers involved could face a military court, depending on the outcome of the police investigation.

The shootout was reportedly triggered by a social dispute, which is often used by the authorities to describe domestic violence or some non-political incident.
