Iraqi Forces Alliance expresses surprise over PM's remarks on HRW report


Iraqi Forces Alliance on Wednesday expressed surprise at the remarks made by Prime Minister Haider Al-Baghdadi on a report released by Human Rights Watch (HRW).

He rejected the report as containing a lot of falsifications.

We are surprised at the remarks made against a neutral and professional watchdog such as Human Rights Watch (HRW) as it is known for its aojective and unbiased reports prepared based on first-hand sources, the alliance said in a statement.

It added:"We see these remarks are being made to cover up the violations committed by some elements affiliated with the Iran Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) including raids and kidnappings in some regions with the aim of undermining stability and fomenting sectarian sedition in the country."
