Iraqi Lawmaker Yonadam Kanna on Wednesday accused Iranian militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) of seizing homes and properties of Christians.

In a statement, Kanna said that the persecution of the Christian constituent in Iraq is not new. It began decades ago but has worsened in the last five years, he added.

He noted that the state of chaos and absence of law after toppling Saddam Hussein paved the way for the persecution of Christians and all minorities including Turkmen, Shabak and Yezidis
