The Secretariat General of the Muslim World League (The League) based in Holy Makkah has issued an urgent humanitarian appeal which it addressed to whole international community and humanitarian organizations regarding atrocious/fierce incidents committed by by the popular collective force and sectarian militia in the city of Fallouja, Iraq since long. The League has emphasized the necessity of saving innocent civilians, who have been exposed to annihilation and sectarian war prohibited by ethical and humanitarian principles and classified as crime by international humanitarian law and which are considered as war crimes as well as crimes against humanity.
This was carried by a press statement, issued by H. E. Dr. Sheikh Abdullah Ibn Abdulmohsin Alturki, Secretary General of the Muslim World League (the League ) and Member of Commission of Senior Scholars (Ulama) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ; and in which reads as follows" Praise be to Allah ; blessing and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah. Muslims all over the world strongly denounced the grave incidents that took place in the Iraqi city of Falouja and the fierce military attack to which it is currently exposed , after the ruthless besiege of the city and depravity of its population of food for a long time.
The Muslim World League strongly denounces the killing actions as well as the regretful bloodshed caused by the shelling of innocent civilians' homes as well as exposing civilians, including women , children and the elderly to death , particularly after they have been awfully trapped between the anvil of ISIS , which exploited them as human shields and the hammer of popular collective force and sectarian militia.
Furthermore, the League condemns the statements given by the leaders of Shiia militia in Iraq and their despicable sectarian instigation for the destruction of the city and killing of its Sunnah Muslim inhabitants and hoisting sectarian flags and slogans, putting images on the machinery heading for Falouuja and naming that are incessantly launches at Fallouja with sectarian names.
The League requests international community, international organizations, Organization of Islamic Cooperation and Arab League to undertake their humanitarian duty towards innocent civilians; and it also appeals to other influential quarters to shoulder their responsibility and play their role towards protecting defenseless civilians , who are in fact captives in the hands of ISIS forces inside the city and are targeted by annihilation campaign launched by the forces that surround the city.
Our religion calls upon us to save people blood and to be merciful to believers and all other people ; and that the fasting of Ramadhan and performance of its special Taraweeh prayer is considered a unique season for mercy to people and obeying Allah with good deeds , not with instigating unfortunate killing and forbidden bloodshed and committing of prohibited acts.
