"Iran should not copy the USA," MP
Erbil: Iraqi parliamentary delegation visits the site of the Iranian missile attack
ERBIL, 21 January – An Iraqi parliamentary delegation chaired by MP Abbas Al-Zamili, Badr Bloc, visited the site of the recent Iranian ballistic missile attack in Erbil.
Following the visit, Al-Zamili, emphasized that “Iran should not copy the United States when it targeted Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis at the airport road”. He added: “The Iraqi parliamentary committee’s investigation into the Iranian attack in Erbil is part of the government’s efforts, led by Prime Minister al-Sudani, to address the issue more effectively than the previous administration’s response to the 2022 bombardment of Sheikh Baz’s house”.
During their visit on January 21, 2024, the delegation surveyed the ruins of Kurdish businessman Peshraw Dizayi’s house, targeted by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.
They witnessed the aftermath of the attack, which claimed the lives of Peshraw Dizatyi, his 11-month daughter, Jina and Karam Mikhael, a friend of the Dizayi family. Erbil government officials presented the remains of a Jina’s toys, who perished alongside her father in the IRGC strike.
The delegation’s visit aimed to assess the damage and the incident’s implications. Dr. Abdullah stated, “The tour of the Iraqi parliamentary delegation at the site of the Iranian missile strike underscores that there is no justification for this assault with war-grade ballistic missiles. This violation is a blatant breach of international agreements and an unacceptable infringement of national sovereignty.”
The delegation, including members from the Security, Defense, and Foreign Relations Committees, was received by Rebar Ahmed, the Interior Minister of Kurdistan Region, and other officials.
