Safety and Security
Residents left vulnerable
Similarly, in contravention of its international legal obligations to provide protection, Iraq has used every opportunity to deprive the residents of Liberty from safety and security measures. Not only has it forbidden the residents from having an adequate amount of large protective T-walls, sandbags, bulletproof vests, and helmets inside Liberty, it has also allowed attacks on Liberty to occur. It is worth noting that gaining access to Liberty requires going through seven security checkpoints to enter the “Red Zone” where Camp Liberty is located. Iraq’s failure to investigate the attacks and provide security indicates its tacit approval for the murder and harming of the residents.
