Use of humanitarian principles in Ashraf Camp question, Iraqiya spokeswoman

Aswat al-Iraq 

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqiya bloc spokeswoman declared today necessity of solving anti-Iranian Ashraf camp residents  in a humane behavior as political refugees because they do not carry weapons.
 
MP Maysoun al-Damalouji told Aswat al-Iraq that the bloc sides finding a humanitarian solution to the residents of the camp, coinciding with their position as political opponents.
 
She pointed out that “the recent behavior was not human and does not coincide with Iraqi ethics”.
 
The anti-Iranian Mujahidi Khalq is stationed in Ashraf Camp, in Diala province, east of Baghdad, since 1985 with the care of the previous regime, where it began attacking Iran since then.
 
After the US intervention in 2003, the American forces kept their base without weapons, which was put under US care, though they were classified as “terrorist organization”.
 
After signing the security agreement between Baghdad and Washington at the end of 2008, the Iraqi government held the responsibility of the camp and called for permanently closing it at the end of this year.
 
UN mission in Iraq called the Iraqi government to abide by the principles of international law in dealing with Mujahidi Khalq.
