The United Nations Condemns Terrorist Attack on Iraqi Army Recruitment Centre

Baghdad, 17 August 2010: The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) strongly condemns today’s terrorist attack on an Iraqi army recruitment centre in Baghdad that claimed the lives of dozens of military recruits and left over a hundred injured.

 

On behalf of the United Nations in Iraq, UNAMI extends its condolences to the families of the victims and to the people and the Government of Iraq and wishes a speedy recovery to those who were wounded.


UNAMI expresses concern at the continued acts of violence targeting the Iraqi people, including those perpetrated during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan that symbolizes the values of peace, tolerance, generosity and solidarity.


UNAMI reiterates that agreement on the formation of the government will greatly contribute to strengthening Iraq’s ability to protect its citizens and respond effectively to those who aim at perpetuating instability and insecurity in the country and reversing its path towards peace and prosperity.
