We have raised these allegations with the Government of Iraq and called on them to ensure that Iraqi Security Forces’ actions are compliant with international human rights and international humanitarian law. We have also called on them to ensure that all perpetrators of human rights abuses in Iraq are brought to justice in accordance with the rule of law.
