Iraqi Regime Intensifies Inhuman Siege on Camp Liberty
By Shahriar Kia
Forces under the command of the Iraqi Prime Ministry prevent entry of food to Liberty and drugs prescribed by doctors
Criminal Major Ahmad Khozair from the Iraqi intelligence service has been preventing for more than a week two truckloads of food purchased by residents of Camp Liberty from entering the camp. On one hand the food in these two trucks are about to be rotten, and on the other hand Liberty doesn't have any food supplies due to lack of necessary cold storages and warehouses, and residents rapidly face shortages of these foods. The Government of Iraq has intensified harassment of the residents by preventing food from entering Liberty.
In another inhumane act on Sunday March 9, one the Iraqi Prime Ministry agents prevented purchase of medication by patients who had gone to Baghdad hospital. This agent who works under the orders of Ahmad Khozair, every day goes to the hospital with patients and persecutes them by various methods.
One of the patients returning to Liberty few days after an open heart surgery demanded that the ambulance air conditioner be turned on but this agent prevented that and upon reaching Liberty, the patient's condition deteriorated due to heat.
Ahmad Khozair participated directly in the massacre and kidnapping of September 1, 2013 and the massacre of April 8, 2011 in Ashraf, and now has the major role in implementing medical siege against Camp Liberty asylum seekers. Preventing free access to medical services and delays in treatment of the patients so far has led to the slow death of 18 residents of Ashraf and Liberty.
The Iranian resistance warns against the consequences of this inhumane siege and presence of elements such as Ahmad Khozair, who is a preamble for another massacre, and calls on the United Nations and the United States to take immediate action to end this cruel siege and presence of criminals in Liberty based on their repeated written guarantees toward the safety and security of Liberty residents.
