IHCHR calls on the Iraqi government to seek the issuance of a United Nations resolution to compensate victims of ISIS.

The member of the High Commission for Human Rights of Iraq (IHCHR), Dr. Fadhil Al-Gharawi, has called on the Iraqi government to seek the issuance of a United Nations resolution to compensate victims of the violations of ISIS in Iraq.

Al-Gharawi said in a press release that ISIS committed the most heinous crimes against the rights of civilians, in terms of killing, displacement and homelessness.

He stated that the crimes committed targeted the civilizational, historical and cultural heritage of Iraq, violated the right to life and freedom of belief and religion, and prevented freedom of opinion and expression.

He also noted out that these crimes and violations are crimes of genocide and crimes against humanity, as they target all sections of the Iraqi population, and called on the relevant authorities to seriously seek redress for victims of violations by ISIS gangs in Iraq and to make reparation for the crimes they suffered.
