Iraqi Kurdish Police Open Fire On Striking Workers and Protesters

Hundreds of public sector workers in Iraqi Kurdistan went on strike after the government stated it would only give 1 more monthly paycheck with a 21% cut, following giving only 4 monthly salaries in 2020 with a 20% cut each.

Government forces deployed tear gas on the striking workers and protesters, as well as firing live ammunition into the crowd and injuring many journalists.
