“I strongly condemn the heinous attacks and the senseless violence and bloodshed across the country,” said Mr. Gyorgy Busztin, the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General (DSRSG) for Political Affairs. “The scale and brutality of the attacks are appalling - especially now, when Iraqis are not only celebrating the holy month of Ramadan, with its messages of peace and reconciliation, but are also welcoming thousands of returnees who have fled the ongoing violence in Syria.”
“The criminals who perpetrated these attacks must be held to account,” he stressed.
DSRSG Busztin extends his condolences to the families of those who were killed and his wishes for the speedy recovery of those who were injured.
