Calls for UN investigation into Syrian air force targeting Iraq

The council of Iraq’s Anbar province today demanded the Arab League and the United Nations open an investigation into the Syrian Air Force targeting Iraqi territory killing and injuring dozens of civilians in the border city of Qaim.

The officials said they held the Syrian government responsible for this targeting of Iraqi citizens.

The head of the council of Anbar Sabah Karhut told Anadolu: “The Syrian government has transcended against Iraq and bombed, with its planes, the Iraqi border city of Qaim in which dozens of civilians were left dead or wounded in addition to the material damage.”

Karhut asked the Arab League and the United Nations “to open an investigation about the incident and prevent the Syrian Air Forces from flying over Iraqi territory and prevent the targeting of citizens again,” holding the Syrian government responsible for targeting Iraqi citizens.

The warplanes of the Syrian regime yesterday bombed the Iraqi border city of Qaim, which led to dozens of dead and wounded civilians, according to a tribal source in Anbar province.
