Tuesday, 08 January 2008

NCRI - Agents of the clerical regime murdered Sheikh Salman Hamzeh al-Jabouri and his three sons. He was a relative of Dr. Abdullah Jabouri, the former Governor of Diyala Province.

At midnight on Monday, December 31, 2007, the terrorists kidnapped Sheikh Salman Hamzeh Jabouri and his sons from their residence in Marjaneh village, six Kilometers north of Saadieh in Diyala Province. They were machine gunned only four hundred meters away from their home and all of them were killed instantly.

The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the kidnapping and ruthless terror and expresses its condolences to the Jabouri Family, in particular Dr. Jabouri. The Iranian Resistance reiterates the need for prosecution of the perpetrators of this crime and on the need for serious measures to deal with the clerical regime's terrorist meddling in Iraq.

In June 2006, 5.2 million Iraqis signed a statement calling for eviction of the clerical regime from Iraq. While pointing out some of the regime's crimes in Iraq including "mass murders; assassination of nationalist personalities and the Iraqi society's elite; an unremitting wave of arbitrary arrests and countless cases of kidnapping," the 5.2 million Iraqis reiterated that the Iranian regime has targeted "security, life and democracy," and "Iraq was driven to the verge of precipice."
