For 3rd month Iraqi forces block gasoline entry into Camp Liberty

Call on U.S. and UN to end the siege and have gasoline and other necessary goods to get to camp

NCRI – Barring gasoline from getting into Camp Liberty in Iraq that houses Iranian refugees entered its third month.

The gasoline that are purchased by residents in the past three years and brought into the camp is used by a limited number of public service and passenger vehicles.

These vehicles are used for the distribution of residents’ daily food, as well as the commute of patients and injured and those unable to walk on gravel and uneven grounds of the camp.

Barring gasoline from getting into the camp has forced patients to walk in cold weather on slushy and graveled roads that is tantamount to torturing them.

Because of prohibition of gasoline, Iranian residents are even unable to take emergency patients to camp’s clinic.

This is despite the fact that the Iranian residents and their representatives have brought up this anti-human siege to UNAMI’s attention on a daily basis and informed the United Nations and the United States in their many correspondences. Regrettably, no serious steps have yet been taken.

The Iranian Resistance calls on the international community and pertinent organs, as well as defenders of human rights and the rights of refugees, to condemn this criminal siege.

Reminding the repeated and written commitments of the United Nations and the U.S. government concerning the well-being and security of Camp Liberty residents, the Iranian Resistance calls for immediate action for the revocation of the criminal blockade of Camp Liberty and securing entry of gasoline and other essential items to the camp.
