Iraqi Army: Ankara should be ready to account for Maxmur attack

The spokesman for the Iraqi army and head of the National Wisdom Movement in Iraq condemned the Turkish attack that killed three civilians in Maxmur yesterday.

General Abdul Kareem Khalaf, the spokesman for the Iraqi Armed Forces, spoke about the Turkish air raid that targeted Maxmur Refugee Camp in southern Kurdistan, northern Iraq on 15 April Wednesday, killing three women living in the camp.

According to Pona News, Khalaf said that the attack targeted the sovereignty of Iraq. Defining the attack as a hostile attitude, he pointed out that Ankara should be ready to give an account of this.

Ammar al-Hakim, head of the National Wisdom Movement in Iraq, also condemned the Turkish attack in a Twitter post.

The leader of the movement, which was founded in 2017, said; “A violation against Iraqi soil is unacceptable, no matter under which name. How can an aircraft bomb Maxmur? We condemn this violation and call on the (Iraqi) government to fulfill its responsibilities against the violations in question.”
