Baghdad - MENA
Speaker of the Iraqi Council of Representatives Salim al-Jabouri described terrorist Daesh group's shelling to civilians in Kirkuk governorate's city of Taza with shells, carrying chemical substances as catastrophic.
This attack represents a serious shift in the brutal approach adopted by the terrorist group, al-Jabouri said.
He called for taking more measures for protecting civilians in Taza and other Iraqi cities, and speeding up the pace of military operations aimed at liberating the areas controlled by Daesh in Kirkuk and Saladin governorates.
Al-Jabouri added the new methods that Daesh proved its imbalance and frustration in the real military confrontations with the Iraqi forces, urging the international community to support Iraq to weaken Daesh's capability in using such fatal weapons.
