Recently, the Kirkuk governorate has been hit by a number of terrorist attacks. In late June, the remains of hostages, all reportedly members of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces, were found by Iraqi security forces on the Kirkuk-Diyala road.
On July 1, media reported that one person was killed and 21 others injured in a triple explosion that hit a warehouse storing ballot boxes from the May elections in Kirkuk.
