On February 11-12, Iraqi suppressive forces under command of the Iraqi Prime Ministry, in an anti-human act, prevented patients who had gone to Baghdad hospital from purchasing their medication as prescribed and written by their physicians. Similarly, on Wednesday, February 12, the agents that accompany the patients to the hospital interfered with the patients’ medical affairs and hampered patients’ appointments with their specialist doctors.
In another harassing and repressive example, these agents used a cutter to tear into pieces the identification card of one of the patients in order to cause problems for him in getting to the hospital.
These criminal acts are conducted under the supervision of a criminal intelligence Major called Ahmed Khozair that is affiliated with the Iraqi Prime Ministry who has played a very active role in the imposition of five years of blockade in Ashraf and Camp Liberty and in particular the medical siege. He has also played a direct role in the massacre, mass execution, and abductions of September 1, 2013 and April 8, 2011 in Ashraf.
Obstructing free access to medical services and delaying treatment of patients has led to the tormenting-to-death of 18 residents of Ashraf and Camp Liberty.
The Iranian Resistance warns of the consequences of this anti-human medical siege and the presence of such criminals as Ahmed Khozair in Camp Liberty who pave the way for another massacre and calls on the United Nations and the United States government to resort to urgent action to end this blockade and terminate the presence of these criminal elements at Camp Liberty.
