Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament Salim al-Jabouri warned Monday against targeting Christians of Iraq, saying that it severely damages the public peace of society.

"What happened to Iraqi people, especially the Christian brothers, is part of the attempts to stir divisions among the society's sons," Jabouri said in press release on Monday.

The parliament speaker addressed in his statement the killing of a Christian family in the capital, Baghdad on Friday, after breaking into their house and stealing all the valuable properties.

"The killing of the Christian family is dangerous, even it was for robbery," Jabouri said, calling on security apparatuses to protect all citizens across the nation.

"Christians have proved their deep love to their country and brothers, by being patient despite the severity of the losses and the big challenges," he added, expressing his deep condolences to the family and to all Christians for their loss.

The Iraqi interior ministry announced the arrest of the suspects on Saturday, adding that they subject them to investigations.
