Iraq will file a complaint to the UN due to US airstrikes

US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — The Iraqi Foreign Ministry intends to file a complaint with the UN over US air strikes on Iraqi military installations and an airport under construction, which claimed the lives of six people, said Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad al-Sahhaf.

Earlier, al-Sahaf said that the Foreign Minister of Iraq caused the United States and the Ambassadors of Great Britain in Baghdad in connection with the air strikes.

“Iraq will file a complaint regarding the aggression of the US Armed Forces against state facilities in two letters – to the UN and the UN Security Council,” Al-Sahhaf said in a press release.

He emphasized that the US attack undermines counter-terrorism efforts and violates Iraqi sovereignty and the cooperation agreement between Baghdad and the international coalition.

The Iraqi security press service previously reported that six people – five security officials and one civilian – died as a result of US air strikes at several sites in Iraq, including the Karbala airport under construction.

The Iraqi Armed Forces condemned the US Air Force attack , noting that it “violates the principle of cooperation,” and US allegations of a response to the Taj base attack were called a weak excuse.
