Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The Former MP of the Iraqi National Alliance and the Turkmen Community, Mohammed al-Bayati, threatened “The Turkmen Community will carry the weapons to protect themselves due to the latest terrorist attack in Tuz Khurmato district on Wednesday.”
In a press statement received by IraqiNews.com on Thursday, he said “The Turkmen will carry the weapons to protect themselves after the failure of the security government to protect them.”
“We warned the local government of Salah il-Din province and the government from targeting Tuz Khurmato district, but our warnings were not taken into consideration.”
He accused “The security forces of being unqualified and including corrupted officials,” he also accused “Salah il-Din Provincial Council of dealing with Tuz Khurmato in a sectarian way.”
“The government is unable to protect the citizens due to the existence of the Peshmerga forces that protect the Kurds only in the district where the only targeted Community is the Shiite Turkmen,” he concluded.
