European Parliament resolution on the humanitarian situation of the Iraqi refugees 

The European Parliament,

-having regard to Rule 115(5) of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  Whereas Iraqis have been plagued by the proliferation of armed militias, and criminal and terrorist organisations acting with virtual impunity, constituting major challenges to law and order and a threat to the security of the civilian population,

B.  Whereas criminal activities include armed robberies, kidnappings for ransom, harassment, the killing of persons involved in the political process or reconstruction activities, sabotage attacks against civilian infrastructure such as electricity or oil pipelines and full-scale attacks involving indiscriminate bombs and/or other explosives against civilians and as a result many Iraqis continue to flee, primarily to Jordan and Syria but also to Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Iran and further afield,

C.  Whereas according to UNHCR, the number of Iraqi refugees worldwide is important,

D.  Whereas according to the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) and WFP indications at least 47 percent of the displaced have no access to official food distribution channels,

E.  Whereas many groups continue to suffer persecution in Iraq, particularly women, 

F.  Whereas Jews, Mandeans and Christians (including Assyrians, Armenian, Greek orthodox and other Christian minorities) are increasingly experiencing discrimination with regard to access to the labour market or basic social services and many are afraid of persecution by insurgent groups as well as Islamist militias, which have gained de facto control over entire neighbourhoods in various cities and villages in Iraq; whereas as part of increasing tensions between Sunnis and Shiite, individuals may also be solely targeted on the basis of their membership of ethnic or religious minorities,

G.  Whereas the Syrian government has in certain cases refused to allow the Palestinians entry into the country, leaving the refugees stranded at the border and hundreds more expected to attempt to make the hazardous journey,


1.  Considers the support of the international community is vital in easing the suffering of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) or those fleeing the country as well as the increased pressure on countries like Syria and Jordan, which together host an important number of Iraqi refugees;

2.  Asks the Council and the Commission to keep on providing appropriate financial support;

3.  Reiterates the need for a strong partnership between UNHCR and the Muslim world;

4.  Calls on the Saudi leaders, recalling Saudi Arabia’s long tradition of protecting asylum seekers and refugees and the Organization of the Islamic Conference, to use their influence to help find a solution for the tragedy of some 15,000 Palestinians in Iraq, living in desperate conditions and unable to cross the border;

5.  Calls on the Iraqi government, local regional and religious authorities and the coalition Multi-National Forces in Iraq to take immediate steps to improve security for all the refugees and internally displaced people in Iraq and end discriminatory practices;


6.  Instructs its president to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, the UN Secretary General, the UNHCR, the Iraqi government, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference and the governments of Syria and Jordan.
