The United Arab Emirates strongly condemned the attack that targeted a tourist area in the Dohuk province in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation stressed the UAE’s strong condemnation of the attack and its permanent rejection of all destabilizing forms of violence.
It expressed the UAE's solidarity with all measures taken by Iraq to protect its sovereignty, security and stability, underling its keenness to ensure the security and stability of Iraq.
The Ministry also expressed its sincere condolences and sympathy to the government and people of Iraq and to the families of the victims of this heinous crime, and wished a speedy recovery for all the injured.
A Turkish strike on a mountain resort in Dohuk killed nine people and wounded 29 on Wednesday.
Iraq summoned Ankara's ambassador to Baghdad over the attack and its state agency said the government will call back its charge d'affaires in Ankara.
Turkey regularly carries out air strikes in northern Iraq and has sent commandos to support its offensives as part of a long-running campaign in Iraq and Syria against militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the Syrian Kurdish YPG. Ankara regards both as terrorist groups.
Dozens of Iraqis gathered on Wednesday outside the Turkish embassy in Baghdad to protest the attack. The top United Nations envoy to Iraq also condemned it and called for an investigation.
Hundreds of angry Iraqis took to the streets late Thursday to decry the attack.
