Sen. Thom Tillis: U.S. Congress working to ensure safety of Camp LibertyPublished by International Liberty Association on July 24, 2016
A bipartisan effort is under way in the United States Congress to “ensure the safety and security” of the residents in Camp Liberty, Iraq, Senator Thom Tillis has said.
The residents have faced repeated rocket attacks in Camp Liberty by terrorist militias affiliated to the Iranian regime.
In a message of support to the Grand Gathering of the Iranians in Paris on July 9, Sen. Tillis, a North Carolina Republican, said: “I am deeply troubled by the escalation of human rights violations in Iran and the fragile situation in Iraq, which places your loved ones at Camp Liberty in grave danger. Fortunately, through strong bipartisan support in Congress, we are making some progress to ensure the safety and security of the brave men and women at Camp Liberty.”
“Camp Liberty is not only a humanitarian issue; it is a symbol of hope and inspiration to young people in Iran. A spirit of defiance and resistance is alive and well at Camp Liberty, thanks to the brave men and women who live there, and it is especially important that this spirit continues to thrive. We must do everything we can to ensure that these brave people are safe and secure while they remain at Camp Liberty, and to hold the government of Iraq accountable for their actions.”
