Iraqi people and leaders condemn attack against Liberty residents who are Iraq's guests

In their uprising on Friday, February 15 titled as "Baghdad, Persistence!" people of Iraq condemned missile attack on Liberty and massacre of its residents.

Excellency Sheikh Abdul-Malek al-Saadi, prominent Iraqi religious leader, said in his statement addressed to demonstrators, "Instead of fulfilling the rights of masses of people and this huge crowd... the Government of Iraq had launched an extensive wave of unbridled measures and has sunk Baghdad with assassinations, arrests, pressures and has banned entering people to this city...This government further added to this obstinacy and fired missiles at Camp Liberty residents who are Iraq's guests." (Al Taqeer TV- demonstration in Fallujah, February 15).

In Mosul, demonstrators carried banners and placards condemning attack on Liberty. One of the banners read, "We condemn the criminal missile barrage against Camp Liberty by the Iranian and its mercenaries. Be persistent! Cruelty shall vanish."

Al-Mada news agency wrote in a report from Samarra, "Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim, Imam and preacher at sit-in square in Samarra said: We condemn the government for allowing persons to come from beyond the border and specifically from Iran and rattle their sabers in Baghdad, and bring missile into Iraq and attack camps, and at the same time prevent worshipers to pray at Abu-Hanifa Mosque."

"Camp Liberty in western Baghdad belonging to the PMOI was targeted on February 9. PMOI announced 35 rockets hit the camp leaving at least 60 people killed or injured." (Al-Mada, February 15)

When General Ghaidan, Maliki's Ground Forces Commander, went to Al-Anbar on February 14, he was faced with severe protests of representatives of demonstrators who told him, "Why are Kataeb al-Hezbollah provided security and why are they provided a place in the International Stadium to hold military parades ... and why does Watheq al-Battat make threats and act based on his threats and fires missiles at the PMOI base and murders people at Taramia and Saidia...,and then his escape to Syria is facilitated? Where are your commanders? " (al-Babeliya TV- February 14)
