Wenn schon die Sadristen, einentlich enge Verbündete der Ayatollahs, Maßnahmen gegen den Iran fordern:
The head of the Ahrar bloc urged the Iraqi government today to sever diplomatic and trade relations with Iran until the latter ceases its shelling of border territories in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.
Speaking to AKnews, Amir Kanani – who heads Ahrar under the umbrella of the Sadrist Current led by radical Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr – condemned the Iranian bombardments, describing them as a “violation of Iraq’s sovereignty”.
“The Iraqi government should seriously consider cutting diplomatic and trade relations with Iran, as it appears that the diplomatic measures so far taken have proved futile in settling the issue,” he said.
Iran has stepped up its bombardments of the Kurdish territories over the past week, following ferocious clashes that broke out two weeks ago between the Iranian border guards and Kurdish separatist rebels, the PJAK.
So far, three Iraqi civilians have been killed, four others injured and almost a thousand villagers displaced because of Iran’s shelling.
