The Iraqi government's deadline for an investigation into the Ibn Al Khatib hospital fire, which killed 83 people, passed on April 30 without any official announcement. The hospital was gutted by a ferocious inferno five days earlier, thought to have been caused by an exploding oxygen cylinder. The disaster stunned a nation accustomed to tragedy – witnesses said many of the victims were burnt alive. A day after the fire, Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi suspended the health minister, Hassan…
Iran’s destructive actions in the Middle East are a major concern for the countries in that region and for the rest of the international community. Since the start of the mullahs’ rule in 1979, one of the regime’s main destructive activities has been its meddling in the Middle East. Terror acts, kidnapping, the foundation of extreme proxy groups and their support, misusing Islam in the favor of its satanic ideology, suicide attacks and many other acts are only in the favor…
At least 82 people are dead after a horrific fire swept through the Covid intensive care unit of one of Iraq's main hospitals over the weekend. The Iraqi prime minister has suspended the nation's health minister over the incident. It's been reported the blaze began when an accident caused an oxygen tank to explode at Ibn al-Khatib Hospital in Baghdad. According to media reports, the hospital "had no fire protection system and false ceilings allowed the flames to spread to highly flammable products". The tragedy,…

Winds of change are blowing in Baghdad Tuesday, 20 April 2021 17:06

April 20 (UPI) -- For years, Iraq's future has been determined by its theocratic neighbor, the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Iranian regime's vicious meddling in Iraq has caused growing resentment and resistance from the Iraqi people. There are now signs that the mullahs' vice-like grip may be beginning to waver. But Iraq is not the only problem facing Tehran. As the Biden administration sends yet another delegation to Vienna to continue negotiations on reviving the defunct Joint Comprehensive Plan of…
NASIRIYAH, Iraq — When the call came to fight the Islamic State, the lines of volunteers here stretched for blocks. Friends pooled money to pay for transportation to local militia recruitment offices. Young men were already scrambling onto buses bound for the front lines. “Back then, it was just about one thing,” said former militiaman Thamer al-Safi, recalling the battles of 2014 in which two of his brothers died. “This was about our future. This was about Iraq.” That mass…
BAGHDAD — It was a stark message: A convoy of masked Shiite militiamen, armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, drove openly through central Baghdad denouncing the U.S. presence in Iraq and threatening to cut off the prime minister’s ear. The ominous display underscored the growing threat that rogue militias loyal to Tehran pose for Iraq. It came at a time when Baghdad seeks to bolster relations with its Arab neighbors and is gearing up for early elections, scheduled for…

Iraqis are getting fed up with Iran Thursday, 25 March 2021 21:35

Astain on Iraq’s sovereignty.” That is how an Iraqi army officer describes the billboard glorifying Qassem Suleimani, a stunningly successful Iranian commander who was killed in an American air strike on Iraqi soil in January 2020. The hoarding looms over Baghdad’s administrative district, known as the Green Zone. Many Iraqis once hailed Suleimani as hero for mobilising local forces that beat back the jihadists of Islamic State. But public sentiment in Iraq has turned. The masses who cheered Iran as a…
The Iranian regime’s military interventions in the region are now an unambiguous reality that nobody inside or outside of Iran can honestly deny. Despite this, however, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei keeps repeating his tired old claim that Iran did not intervene in Syria and Iraq militarily, with Tehran only having an advisory role in these countries. Khamenei’s contradictory remarks on this issue in recent years have repeatedly exposed his dishonesty. On one occasion, he was quoted as saying: “If the…
NKARA: The diplomatic crisis between Ankara and Tehran has escalated following the latest statement from Iran’s Ambassador to Baghdad Iraj Masjedi, who reiterated an opposition to Turkish military intervention in Iraq, a new move that highlights a broader rivalry between the two countries in the region. “Turkish forces should not pose a threat or violate Iraqi soil,” Masjedi said on Sunday. “We do not accept at all, be it Turkey or any other country, to intervene in Iraq militarily or…
Pope Francis will make history when he crosses the threshold of a small, rented dwelling in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf on Saturday. His visit to the home of Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani will mark a powerful moment in interfaith relations, experts say, and millions of people will be watching. Sistani is Iraq’s leading religious authority and a preeminent figure in Shiite Islam, and his meeting with the pontiff will be loaded with symbolism: two global religious leaders sitting…
Pope Francis begins a three-day whirlwind tour of Iraq on Friday, despite worries that he could draw large crowds at a moment when the coronavirus appears to be resurgent in the country. Continuing security concerns in a nation ravaged by years of war and conflict were also not enough to deter Pope Francis from fulfilling a promise to visit one of the world’s oldest Christian communities. Why is Francis visiting Iraq? Such a visit has been the dream of several popes. John…
