Turkomen did not celebrate Eid due to fear of attacks

Aswat al-Iraq reports:

The Chairman of the Iraqi Turkomen Front and Member of al-Iraqiya Coalition, Arshad al-Salehy, has said on Thursday that Iraq's Turkomen, especially in northern Iraq's oil-rich city of Kirkuk, have not celebrated Eid al-Adha Holidays, due to the deteriorated security situation and the continuation of aggressive attacks against them.

"We are cornered by silence by both government and Parliament sides, and would like to ask for the reason why Iraqi Turkomen are being targets for killings and abduction," Salehy told Aswat al-Iraq news agency, adding that the "Iraqi Society has began to be divided between Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds, whilst the Turkomen are still linked to their 'Iraqism', territory and homeland."
