Strong condemnation of the attack on the Sunni Adhamiyah suburb in Baghdad.
A conspiracy by Tehran and its militias to foment religious war.
The European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) strongly condemns the attack on the Sunni Adhamiyah suburb of Baghdad by armed gang of Shi’ite militias thugs, affiliated with the Iranian Quds Force.
By the Iraqi government's own account, sectarian Shi’ite militias (affiliated to Iran) attacked this Sunni neighbourhood in Baghdad on Thursday, setting alight homes, businesses, property and local government buildings.
Struan Stevenson, President of EIFA said: “This is another step by the Iranian regime to pave the way for religious war, genocide against the Sunnis, and to expand and strengthen the mullah’s dominion over Iraq. The attack on this Sunni neighbourhood by the Iranian regime, especially in the presence of Iraqi security forces, will surely weaken Prime Minister al-Abadi’s government to direct the benefit of his immediate predecessor Nuri al-Maliki, Hadi Ameri and other puppets of the Iranian regime.”
“We call again for the expulsion of all Iranian Quds Force and Iranian Revolutionary Guards from Iraq and the complete cleansing of the Iraqi government, the military and security agencies, from the agents of the Iranian regime and Shiia militants. This is an essential and unavoidable step towards the establishment of peace and stability in Iraq. “
Struan Stevenson is President of the European Iraqi Freedom Association. He was President of the European Parliament’s Delegation for Relations with Iraq from 2009-2014.
