15th July 2007
We have just been informed that the coward U.S. soldiers shot and wounded Mr. Khalil Abdullah ORANKAY, our 68-year old cousin, a retired Engineer, who was driving his car in KERKUK, his home city, on 14th July 2007.
Our cousin was taken to the hospital where he is being treated for his wounds.
We hope he will survive this criminal attack by the U.S. soldiers.
I am filled with anger and hatred at these U.S. beasts who have no respect for Iraqis and who are allowed to wound and kill innocent civilians without being prosecuted.
This is not a "banal" incident, this is a war crime committed by the U.S. in Iraq.
