A parliamentarian identifies 3 steps to end the “electricity war” in Iraq

On Saturday, Salem Al-Anbuki, a member of the House of Representatives, outlined three steps to end the electricity crisis in Iraq, emphasizing that sanctions were not effective in deterring it.

During an interview, Al-Anbaki stated that the country experiences periodic attacks on electricity transmission lines, leading to energy supply crises in Diyala and other areas.

He stated that the targeting operations are not chaotic and are being carried out on crucial lines in various regions, which raises several concerns.

During a recent interview, a member of the House of Representatives outlined a three-step plan to put an end to the electricity war. The plan involves uncovering the identities of those responsible for the sabotage operations, as well as exposing their supporters. Additionally, the penalties for such actions would be doubled to ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions, which are essentially acts of terrorism that disrupt important institutions within our country.

He emphasized that the electricity conflict in Iraq is driven by power interests, internal and external goals, and terrorist acts, and called for revising field plans and utilizing modern monitoring and follow-up frameworks.

During 2023, there were more than 10 targeted attacks on transportation lines, particularly in Diyala and Salah al-Din.
