Iraqi Christians make shocking claims
Iraqi Christians have made shocking claims about the political crisis in Iraq. Iraqi Christians, who fled their village because of Daesh, have blamed the political crisis for a tragic fire accident that killed more than 100 of their friends and relatives at a wedding.
According to Iraqi Christians, chronic political rot and lax governance led to the tragic fire accident at a wedding in Iraq’s largest Christian town.
“Corruption killed us”
They were driven from their village by Daesh terrorists. They were rebuilding their lives in Hamdaniya, a district in the Nineveh Governorate of Iraq. They said that terrorists had failed to kill them but corruption killed Iraqi Christains.
Priest Boutros Shito said, “Daesh didn’t kill us, this catastrophe killed us.” Boutros Shito was mourning over the death of at least 94 people during the wedding fire.
Priest Boutros Shito reportedly lost his parents, two of his sisters and two nephews due to the fire sparked by fireworks. He further said, “We always wait until a disaster occurs and then deal with the results. Our home is now empty of family because of greed and corruption.”
