Iraq condemns Turkish shelling demanding to put end "violations"

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry condemned the Turkish bombardment of the Kurdistan region, demanding that the Turkish side stop the bombing, which is considered egregious violation of international humanitarian law." 

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry said in a statement that "Iraq expresses its condemnation of the two aircraft belonging to the Turkish air force to bomb intensely on the Kurta / Sulaymaniyah province, causing the deaths of four citizens, wounding four others, and the intimidation of civilians who are living in safely."

And added "While we are keen to establish long-term strategic relations and to prevent acts emanating from Iraqi territory against the security of neighboring Turkey, we believe that unilateral acts of war violate Iraqi sovereignty and contradict the principles of good neighborliness that govern the relations between two neighboring neighbors as our people and theirs, "saying that" this constitutes a serious violation of international humanitarian law. "

"Whatever the circumstances and justifications, we emphasize the importance of the Turkish side to stop the bombing of Iraqi areas, the need to respect sovereignty and mutual cooperation to ensure the security of the borders of the two countries."
