The Governor of Nineveh, Athel Al-Nijafey said on Saturday 1st of August, that there were no attacks targeting Christians in Mosul and the recent attack that targeted the Virgin Fatima Church is a very simple operation and was dealt with quickly and a necessary action was taken by the Leadership of Nineveh’s Operations.
As for the recent attacks against Christians that took place last year the Governor said that “the recent government in charge of Nineveh’s security had tolerated such actions, and didn’t take the needed procedures to prevent or investigate these attacks” he adds “the political issues in Iraq have prevented the disclosure of the real people behind these attacks!”
From the other hand, Christians from Mosul city were surprised by the statements of Mr. Athel Al-Nijafey, saying that the situation remains the same and the killings actions against Christians are continuing, and that there is nothing tangible to improve our condition.
The Christians in Mosul also criticized the security forces that were supposedly assigned to protect the churches. Saying that all the security members are gathered at the gates, and some cases of harassments were recorded especially to the women who attend these churches.
