Preventing entry of fuel for six days in a row has made Camp Liberty residents face a dangerous humanitarian crisis

NCRI - On Monday, August 18, 2014, for the sixth day in a row the Iraqi forces stationed at Camp Liberty located near Baghdad International Airport, home to Iranian refugees in Iraq, prevented entry of fuel that is essential for providing the minimum humanitarian needs of the residents.

Providing minimum daily necessities in Camp Liberty relies on the continuous and non-stop flow of fuel into the camp.

The fuel powers generators which are used for lighting, cooking food, storing foodstuffs, air conditioning in trailers where the residents live, the purification of water and pumping it into the camp and the drainage of black water.

Liberty is now facing a critical situation in this regard; dozens suffer heat stroke every day, and the sick and the elderly are in a dangerous condition.

Furthermore, since Sunday, August 26, Iraqi forces, upon the orders of Major Ahmad Khozair, have prevented entry of black-water tankers into the camp which would create a health issue for the resident.

The anti-human measures by Iraqi forces in preventing entry of fuel and black-water tankers pursues no goal other than putting the residents under pressure and torturing them in the 50oC heat. The perpetrators of these measures must be prosecuted and punished.
