Iraqi PM accused of concealing causalities of military operation in Al-Anbar

The Iraqi army's strikes against Fallujah continue, resulting in more deaths every day.

A member of the parliament's Security Committee, accused Al-Maliki of blocking news about the number of causalities in Al-Anbar, suggesting that the prime minister is trying to hide his crimes there.

Iraqi parliamentarians have accused Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki of imposing an information blackout on the army's on-going military operations in the cities of Al-Anbar Governorate. The fighting has created a difficult humanitarian situation in western Iraq.
Last month, the government's bloody raid of a protest camp and arrest of a Sunni politician in the city of Ramadi resulted in fighters of the Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, along with tribal allies, seizing Fallujah. Since then, the army has launched a massive military operation in Al-Anbar at a time of rising Sunni anger with the Shi'ite-led government.

In addition, a member of parliament from Al-Anbar, Hamed Al-Motlaq, said that the Iraqi army's strikes against Fallujah continue, resulting in more deaths every day.
The statistics department in Al-Anbar reported that more than 650 civilians and soldiers have been killed and injured since the start of the military operation a month ago. Al-Anbar Council also revealed that more than 14,000 civilians have been displaced so far.
Meanwhile, the Iraqi defence ministry said that Iraqi warplanes have targeted arsenals and pickups with heavy automatic guns placed on them. The ministry claims that these arsenals and pickups belonged to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
