Call on International Humanitarian organization to intervene and stop a human catastrophe in Ashraf

View Comments

We condemn occupation of Camp Ashraf and the savage massacre of defenseless civilians including women by Iraqi forces on Friday, 7 April 2011.

The savage massacre of innocent civilians in camp Ashraf and direct shooting at unarmed refugees by dozens of armored vehicles and hundreds of fully armed forces that was carried out on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's direct order is a crime against humanity that so far has led to 33 dead including 8 women, and more than 300 wounded. The number of dead is increasing due to lack of access to medical services.

The United Nations that has been monitoring the situation in the camp after the US forces discontinued protection of Ashraf, should start a full investigation in order to make sure that all of those involved in this crime including the Armed forces Chief Command who gave the orders as well as other officials and military commanders who ordered to shoot at civilians including men and women are brought to international court.

According to received information many of the wounded are in critical condition and due to the restrictions imposed on medical services by Iraqi officials there are very little medical services available for taking care of the wounded. Therefore, the United Nations and the US government should immediately provide medical services for more than 300 injured people who are in critical conditions. They should also ask for immediate release of all those who were kidnapped by Iraqi forces during the attack that was initiated by Iraqi armed forces.

In order to insure protection of the residents and prevent their total annihilation by the criminal killers who ordered this massacre the US forces and UN Monitoring Team should be stationed in Ashraf without any delay.
