BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqiya Bloc MP described the closure of Trebeil border vent with Jordan includes "bad intentions aiming at covering legitimate Anbar protestors' demands".
MP Waleed Aboud al-Muhamadi, in a statement today, copy received by Aswat al-Iraq, that the closure of the border vent proves that "the demonstrators are more democratic than the government, because they did not fully close the highway".
"There is another services road that could be used for trucks, but the government decided the closure, thus taking no consideration to the flow of goods", he elaborated.
Earlier, Chairman of Anbar Provincial Council Saadoun Ubaid al-Sha'lan denied to Aswat al-Iraq the closure of Trebeil border vent.
Iraqiya semi-official TV reported, in a breaking news, this morning, that the ministry of defence announced the closure due to the security situation in Anbar province and the increasing volumes of sit-ins.
Iraq is witnessing "one of the most dangerous crises" in its history after 2003, through massive protests that extended to Anbar, Salahal-Din, Ninewa, Kirkuk, Diala and Baghdad, as well as other areas in the country.
The protestors demanded the release of male and female prisoners and detainees and cancellation of terrorism and de-Baathification laws and to rectify the political process in the country.
