Summary of the most important events on 23 April 2013, in the aftermath of the onslaught on Hawija by Maliki's Government Forces, leaving at least 50 people dead and hundreds wounded.


On Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at dawn, forces of the Iraqi army, led by the commander of the ground forces criminal Ali Ghaidan attacked a public square in the town of Hawija, in the province of Tamim (Kirkuk), where there were approximately 4,000 peaceful protestors.


The General Secretariat issued a statement condemning Maliki’s crime and that of his troops against the citizens of Al Hawijain the strongest possible words; it affirmed that the protestors carried out what their duty dictates on them; they protested peacefully and demanded their legitimate rights, and they are now without reproach and cannot be blamed, however, this government understands nothing other than the language of blood.



General Ali Ghaidan Majid, the Iraqi Land Forces Commander openly threatened all protesters anywhere in Iraq that he is authorized and determined to take serious actions against the demonstrators on the pretexts that they are Terrorists, Ba'athists… He claimed that his troops are protecting the demonstrators while the demonstrators themselves are suffering from the unacceptable repression by the armed forces.
