Mosul’s District Council demanded that the city of Mosul should be declared a disaster zone... This came after the raids carried out by the coalition aircraft on Thursday, 23/3/2017, targeting houses in the new Mosul area, where 230 people, mostly children and women were killed. (Al-Arabiya, 24/03/2017). The Head of the Mosul District Council Basma Basim revealed that more than 500 civilians were killed by the bombing by the International coalition of the neighborhoods in the western part of the city of Mosul about a week ago... A source in the civil defense in Mosul said: "Hundreds of families estimated to number 2,070 civilians, including women, children and the elderly, are still under the rubble in the areas of New Mosul, and in Al-Mashahdah, Al-Akidat, Bab Al-Jadid, Al-Farouq and Al- Matahn." (Al-Jazeera, 25/03/2017). The United Nations estimates that 400,000 Iraqi civilians are trapped in the Old City of Mosul, while government forces are fighting to regain control of the city.
Words cannot describe the severity and tragedy of the situation in Mosul. Hundreds of innocent people, mostly women and children, have paid with their lives - in a single raid - a price for the criminality, brutality and ambitions of colonial America. This raid was described as the deadliest on civilians, among the air operations carried out by the American army since the invasion of Iraq in 2003 ... The Iraqi Observatory for Human Rights said: 3,846 civilians have been killed in the western side of the city of Mosul in the north of the country since the start of military operations on the 19th of February. (Al-Khaleej Online, 25/3/2017) This is in addition to the hundreds of thousands who have been displaced and the tens of thousands stranded in the city between the “hammer” of the coalition forces and the “anvil” of ISIS, as well as the hundreds of homes destroyed, and the figures and statistics that relate the tragic humanitarian situation in Mosul are increasing.
America, the criminal, is killing innocent children, women and defenseless civilians in Mosul in cold blood, under the pretext of fighting ISIS, and then it boasts of its terrible crime in the result of the investigation, which was issued on Saturday 25/3/2017, where it said: that a US aircraft has bombed, at the request of Iraqi security forces, a site west of Mosul, dozens of civilians are believed to have been killed and wounded." (Reuters, 25/03/2017) The result of this investigation shows America's arrogance and insolence, and shows its real goal of its war in Iraq, that it is not against ISIS as it claims. Otherwise, it would have targeted the areas of its existence and the victims would be the members of ISIS. But in reality the victims are the innocent! This was confirmed by the Head of the District Council of Mosul, where she said in her remarks: "What happened is almost intended because it did not target the fighters of ISIS, whose number did not exceed six people before leaving the neighborhood!" (Al-AlJazeera, 25/03/2017)
In light of these crimes committed by the coalition forces, those who champion the call for rights and freedoms of international institutions, as well as of the leaders of the hypocritical international community who show their sympathy for any attack or bombing in Western countries, and consider it as terrorism and an unforgivable crime, in contrast view the killing of hundreds and even thousands of Muslims in one day as a subject to be looked into!
What is worse is that America's sinful coalition is committing massacres against civilians in Iraq and Syria, with the help of the ruling regimes in the Muslim countries, especially the neighboring countries such as Turkey and Iran, and even with the help of the rulers of the disaster-stricken countries. Which sane ruler seeks help from the colonizers and conspires with it against his people?!
These regimes are nothing but tools that carry out the orders of America and serve its interests and implement its plans. The blood of these innocent people will be a witness to the betrayal and the subordination of these regimes, as well as witness to the failure of the Muslim armies to come to their support and protection, ignoring the saying of Allah:
﴿وَإِنِ اسْتَنْصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ﴾
“…And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help” [Al-Anfal: 72]
O Muslims: There is no way to stop the spilling of blood that flow in the Muslim countries and end their suffering except by uprooting these puppet regimes, and establishing the second righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood on their ruins; the Khilafah that unites Muslims and supports the oppressed and reinforces the Ummah's status and pride. The Khilafah whose Khaleefah will be a father for the children, not their enemy or conspire with their enemies against them. So proceed and work with the workers to establish it, and direct the hands of your sons in the armies to establish it. The events are catastrophic and life is short and supporting your brothers is a trust on your necks.
