Iraq should close all its international borders with Turkey, including flights and file a complaint in the UN as soon as possible, Shia Sadrist Movement leader Muqtada al-Sadr said in response to Turkey’s recent attack on Duhok’s Zakho (Zaxo) district.
Sadr also said Iraq should cancel all its security agreements with Turkey.
Turkey conducted yet again another attack on Iraq with the idea that Iraq will only respond with condemnation of the attacks, he said.
The attacks on Iraqi Kurdistan and Iraq are no longer bearable, he added.
Turkey’s strikes targeted a popular tourist spot on Wednesday that killed at least nine people including three children and wounded over 20.
Many activists in Iraq, especially in Shia majority cities, have also organised widespread protests against the attack.
The Iraqi Ministerial Council for National Security condemned Turkey’s attack saying it will submit an urgent complaint to the UN Security Council and the United Nations.
UN and the United States also condemned the attack and called for security and stability in Iraq.
