Iraq to receive hundreds of terrorists, their families: reports


Parliament's defense and security committee member Abbas Sarwat on Monday revealed information about the entry of hundreds of terrorists carrying no nationality to Iraq, along with their families, to carry out suspicious schemes.

Sarwat revealed that the number of these terrorists and their families reaches about 2,500 people.

Anbar MP Yahya al-Mohamadi on Monday called on Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi, to provide an official explanation for the information about receiving such number of terrorists in Iraq, who he said their countries refused to allow them to return.

"The government's willingness to receive these terrorists in Iraq after their countries refused to allow them to return is suspicious and unacceptable and must be condemned locally and politically," Mohamadi said in a press release.

This comes after Iraq announced liberating its cities from ISIS in 2017, in the term of former Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi.
