According to the website, Dr. Hamoudi addressed the families and called on Iraqi administration and foreign Ministry to call on the embassies of foreign countries and UN officials to get engaged in their previous commitments and receive Liberty residents.

This is our duty based on Islamic rules and international regulations.”
