An Iraqi parliament member has criticized the US-led bombing campaign in the Iraqi provinces of Anbar and Salahuddin as ineffective compared to similar strikes in the country’s Kurdistan region, Press TV has learned.

Parliament Member Aliya Nassif of the State of Law Coalition expressed surprise in a Wednesday statement at the weak impact of the US-led strikes against ISIL terrorists in the two provinces in contrast with the coalition air raids conducted in the areas under the control of Kurdish Peshmerga military units.

The Iraqi MP said that the American double standards in Iraq are not limited to the case in point, as it also includes incidents in which American jetfighters act against the Iraqi air force by engaging in the electronic jamming of aircraft signals.

Nassif further criticized recent remarks by Prime Minister of Iraqi Kurdistan Nichervan Barezani, who has claimed the annexation of the liberated regions of the Nineveh Province.

She demanded that Washington react to the claims by the Kurdish official and explained that American silence toward the move contradicts US commitments to Baghdad regarding the preservation of Iraq’s territorial sovereignty.

The ISIL terrorists currently control swaths of territory across Syria and Iraq. They have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including mass executions and beheading of local residents as well as foreign nationals.

Since late September, a US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against the ISIL inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate. The coalition had already begun an aerial bombing campaign against the Takfiri terrorists in Iraq in August.

This is while many of the countries in the US-led bombing coalition, such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been the staunch supporters of the Takfiri ISIL elements in the region.

The Takfiri ISIL terrorists launched an offensive in Iraq in June and took control of the country’s second-largest city, Mosul, before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

Despite US establishment of an international coalition to help defeat the foreign-backed terror group, the air strikes conducted by the force against the armed elements have proven quite ineffective, failing to dislodge them from their positions.
