A member of the Council of Anbar tribes in Iraq has confirmed that they plan on bringing both domestic and international lawsuits against Qatar.

Sheikh Saad Abdullah Al-Fahdawi said in an interview with local Iraqi media outlets that they plan on centering their lawsuits around news broadcasts on Qatari television that include Qatar’s support for terrorism in Iraq and the rest of the other countries suffering from the presence of ISIS and al-Qaeda.

Al-Fahdawi added that if Qatar is proven to have a relationship with the support of terrorism in Iraq, they would sue Doha for compensation, noting that some of the lawyers have volunteered to file these cases on their behalf already.

He added that he would call upon affected Iraqi citizens to bring similar proceedings against states that caused them harm and to seek compensation from them.
