A spokesman for Iraq’s top Shia cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, has urged the parliament to investigate the massacre of Iraqi soldiers at a military base north of the capital Baghdad.

Ahmed al-Safi said on Friday that the parliament should punish all those who committed the crime at Camp Speicher near the city of Tikrit back in June.

"In the incident at Camp Speicher, hundreds of our country's sons were killed in a brutal way and in complicated circumstances. Many of them are still missing and some may be still alive,” Safi stated.

“The families of the victims have demanded that the Iraqi parliament investigate precisely what happened. We hope that the parliament can arrive at the truth.”

Safi made the remarks after new evidence, obtained by Human Rights Watch, revealed that ISIL Takfiri terrorists murdered between 560 and 770 Iraqi soldiers captured at Camp Speicher.

The ISIL controls large swathes of Syria's northern territory. The group sent its members into neighboring Iraq in June and seized large parts of land there in a lightening advance.

The terrorists have committed heinous crimes and threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds, during their advances in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The terrorist group has links with Saudi intelligence, and is believed to be supported by the Israeli regime.
