The UN is to discuss the Iraqi Situation

The representative of the UN Secretary General and the head of the UN Assistance mission for Iraq, Ján Kubiš, is to present today the report on current situation in the country.

Humanitarian Crisis

According the UN representatives in Iraq, more than 10 million citizens of the country need humanitarian aid. About 3.3 million people left their houses two years ago due to the Islamic State terrorists’ activities. Moreover, 250,000 Syrian refugees found asylum in Iraq, mostly, in Kurdistan, where more than one million people are being temporary hosted.

ISIS’ Victims

According to the statistics, since January 1st 2014 until October 31st 2015, 18,802 civilians died in Iraq, about 36,245 were injured. Only the last six months in 2015 – 3,855 people were killed. The UN report, stated in Geneva in January 2016, said that the ISIS terrorists had committed military crimes, crimes against humanity and, probably, genocide. The methods of killing people include decapitation, fusillade, burning alive, burying with bulldozer, pushing off rooftops. Moreover, children and women were raped. It is known that ISIS used about 900 children for religious education and military training.

Iraq and the UN

In 2016, the United Nations and the Iraqi government launched two programs: the 2016 Plan for Relief, Sheltering and Stabilization, and the 2016 Iraq Humanitarian Response Plan. They are both aimed at food safety, education, health and finance. As with other similar UN initiatives, there is a risk that, as a result of these programs, the Iraqis will become hostage to bureaucracy and another globalist policies, whose implementation will be integrated into Western foundations and non-governmental agencies.

Role of Iran

Iran, like Syria, is now an official ally of Iran. The country consists of a large number of Shiite population and Shiite sacred places. In particular, Kerbala is the place of annual Shiites pilgrimage from different places in the world. Therefore, it is important to establish a secure Tehran regime in the country and to help defeat the ISIS terrorists. Earlier, when Shiite Maliki was the Iraqi Prime Minister, the country managed to normalize the situation for some time. But the United States feared the possible strengthening of Iran's influence and began to carry out various manipulations, including the provision of "moderate militants"; a vast majority defected to the side of ISIS.

However, the security forces and the Iraqi national army managed to achieve some success in the fight against the ISIS militants. The government is now cooperating with the intelligence services of Russia, Iran and Syria to settle this issue.
