IRANIAN ATTACK ON CAMP INSIDE THE KURDISTAN REGION IN IRAQ

That this House strongly condemns the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp’s bombardment of an Iranian Kurdish refugee and political camp in Koya, which is within the borders of the officially recognised Kurdistan Region in Iraq and 200km from Iran; notes that the six ground-to-ground missiles accompanied by a drone were designed to coincide with a meeting of the leadership of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran; sends its condolences to the families of those killed and wishes a speedy recovery to those who were wounded; believes that this was a blatant violation of international law, sovereignty and good neighbourly principles; further notes that the US and its allies in the international coalition still retain responsibility for protecting the airspace of Iraq; fears that failure to respond to Iran’s violation will encourage the Iranian regime to take further action; believes that Iraq and the Kurdistan Region should not become a battlefield for the major powers’ conflict of interest; and urges the UK and other countries to make protests to the Iranian regime at the UN and other levels about that regime’s actions and for all such activity to cease forthwith.
