NCRI - The Iraqi militants fighting the government of Nouri al-Maliki have captured a number of Iranians fighting in Al-Anbar province, a commander of Sunni militants has declared.
Hesam al-ddin al-Dulaimi, member of the Revolutionary Military Council in Al-Anbar province said that the Iranians are being held by militants, Iraqi TV network al-Raffedin reported.
"Maliki is getting orders from the Iranian regime and its Supreme Leader. He cannot even appoint a battalion commander or a manager unless the Iranian regime approves. Iran shamelessly meddles in all of Iraq’s affairs."
"Maliki and others who are in the government are there to follow orders of the Iranian regime,” he said.
Al-Dulaimi said the Iraqi forces continue using barrel bombs to attack people in city of Fallauja.
He said that these brutal attacks have been carried out by Maliki and his masters in Tehran and Qum in Iran.
