Basra MP at the Iraqi parliament called on the tribal elders in Basra to hand over their weapons to the concerned authorities, and make weapons in the province are restricted to the security apparatuses.

“Assassinations and crimes at Basra Governorate are due to the unlicensed weapons in the wrong hands,” MP Rami al-Sakini said in press conference at the parliament on Tuesday.

He called on the tribes and clans to drop their weapons, in order to facilitate the mission of security forces in eliminating crimes, which face difficulty in holding criminals accountable due to their tribal linkage.
