"And upon their arrival in the village, they began to look for the copy of Qur’an and the other items they left, but it seems that it fell on the side of the road," he added.

Muhammad explained that "this man returned to the imam of the mosque and expressed deep concern of what happened," noting that the imam declared that the man was among the worshipers, and that he was his companion.”

On Friday, The office of the President of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), the Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani, lamented footage of a torn Quran that emerged on social media.

This incident was particularly sensitive given that the holy month of Ramadan is currently underway.
