Will Jordanians protect Iraq with their bodies?
A first group of volunteers from Jordan may leave for Baghdad in the nearest days in order to create a “live shield” in case if a war is waged against Iraq. The information was reported by Iraq’s newspaper Al-Jumhuriya with reference to a representative of the Jordan National Committee for Iraq protection.
As is reported, the Committee is ready to send the first group of volunteers in the nearest days. In the course of the campaign it has already launched, the Committee hopes to gather 100 thousand volunteers ready to leave for Iraq to create a “live shield” which will resist the US aggression against Iraq. The decision to send volunteers to Baghdad was made at the conference for solidarity with Iraq held in Cairo last week. Secretary General of the Conference of Arab national force situated in Baghdad, Saad Qassem Hamudi declared earlier this week that Iraq would provide all necessary conditions to receive volunteers: lodging and program of activities.
