Pengadilan: Keluarga Pemimpin ISIS yang Terbunuh Dipulangkan dan Diinterogasi di Irak

BAGHDAD: The family of slain Daesh group leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has been brought back to Iraq for interrogation, judicial officials said on Thursday.
Washington announced in October 2019 that US troops had killed Baghdadi in an operation in northwestern Syria, around five years after he proclaimed an Islamic “caliphate” which he and his fighters ruled with brutality across much of Iraq and neighboring Syria.
Iraq’s judiciary has secured “the repatriation of the family of the terrorist Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi,” the Supreme Judicial Council said on its website.

PM Kurdistan Irak: Suku Kurdi, Seperti Halnya Warga Palestina, Punya Hak untuk Tentukan Nasib Sendiri

LONDON: The Kurdish people, like the Palestinians, have a legitimate right to self-determination, the prime minister of Iraqi Kurdistan said on Monday.
Addressing the World Governments Summit in Dubai, Masrour Barzani said the roots of the injustices experienced by Palestinians since the establishment of Israel in 1948 “remain unaddressed.”
He added: “Had the foundational rights of the Palestinians been dealt with 80 years ago, or in the decades since, there would’ve been far less chance of the tragedy we’re seeing now.”

BAGHDAD: Repeated US strikes against Iran-backed armed groups in Iraq are pushing the Baghdad government to end the mission of the US-led coalition in the country, the prime minister’s military spokesperson said on Thursday.
The US military said a strike on Wednesday killed a commander from Kataib Hezbollah, an Iran-backed armed group in Iraq that the Pentagon has blamed for attacking its troops.
